It was doctor day again at the Olsen house...when you have 4 children you very quickly learn that you DO NOT schedule well-child check ups for all 4 at the same time. You think you are being efficient but don't kid yourself. Your doctor's office will call you names after you leave (trust me on that one!). At the most I will do 2 appointments at a time. So today was Max and Charlie. I just e-mailed Buck and my sister that "Man, we make tall kids!" Not really sure how that happened because Buck and I aren't particularly tall...my sister is, but that really doesn't have anything to do with it! :)
*Max's stats: 8 years old, 4 feet, 7 1/4 " tall, 86 pounds (!) which is off the charts for height, and 95th percentile for weight. Our fabulous NP (also my former business partner!) totally made Max's day by telling him that she predicted he would be 6-3 or 6-4 when he's done growing. I cannot imagine having my son tower over me by a foot but I guess I better prepare myself, at the rate he's going! Max was super-duper brave in getting his wart frozen off his finger and got to throw the fun "witches' brew" (AKA dry ice) on the carpet when he was done. :)
*Charlie's stats: 6 years old, 4 feet, 1 inch, 51 pounds, 75th percentile for weight, 95th for height. See I told ya! We make tall kids! Apparently Charlie is going to tower over his kindergarten classmates, as not only is he on the older end for kindergarten but he is also on the TALL older end! :) Chars was a rock star as always and was oh-so-thankful we got those pesky kindergarten shots out of the way last year! Phew!!
*Miss Zoe is sporting a new look for the next 3 months--a very cool pirate's eye patch! Thank you, wonderful Dr. S! We love you to death, but I do wonder, have YOU ever had to make a 4-year-old wear a patch over her eye? Thankfully it is only for 4 hours a day, but it needs to be for 4 busy hours, such as when she is at school, using her eye. We are trying to strengthen her weaker left eye, and Dr. S assures me that this will happen quickly if we are consistent in our patching. So far so good, but little Miss does NOT like it and I don't blame her. I wish things could have just stayed "status quo" for awhile but it wasn't to be...oh well...it's always something! She is still as beautiful as beautiful can be even with a patch covering almost half her cute little face. :) Pictures to come, if she will let me get a pic with the patch on. Have a great rainy day!
