18 Month Well Check

Well, I missed the 15 mo check which meant that they got tons of shots at this 18 mo well check. Four for Lily and Evan and five for Will since I had delayed his MMR. Otherwise it was a great visit.

Holden and I took Evan in the morning and I took Lily and Will in the afternoon to limit the chaos and help them get a good exam. It really is better if they have their own individual appointments but it takes a ton of time. I spent half the day at the doctors office and had just been the previous week for Holden's well check.

Lily said 'doctor' and 'V' for our favorite nurse Mrs. V or Vernetta and fell all over herself showing her nose and belly button. Both the boys were social and were happy to give high fives to the doctor. Evan and Lily have over 50 words and Will has over 20. I asked the doctor if she was concerned about Will and she said they only look for six words at 18 months and some kids aren't speaking yet, so they are all doing great. The one area we didn't meet was knowing the colors so that is what we are working on now.

Here are the stats:


weight 23 lbs 4 oz (20%)
height 33 1/2 in (80%) our tall guy
head 47 1/2 cm (70%)


weight 23 lbs 5 oz (20%)
height 31 1/2 in (25%)
head 47 1/2 cm (45%) not sure how both boys can have same head size but different %, maybe it's not right.


weight 22 lbs 3 oz (20%)
height 31 1/4 (40%)
head 47 1/2 cm (75%)

She wasn't concerned about their low-ish weights. I told her I would be happy to give them pedisure or more healthy fats but she said they were fine and getting all the nutrition they needed for good development.
