Time sure flies!! This morning I had my 2 year check-up with Dr. Knott. I did great! The only part I was not a huge fan of was the height thing. I stood nicely on the scale (31.4 lbs…75%) but the nurse had let the height measure thing drop and the noise freaked me out. She finally had to leave the room so Mummy and Daddy could measure me. I am 37.5 inches tall…off the chart again! It sure was easier to lay on the table to get my height done! After we did my height and weight I got my blood pressure tested and it was perfect. I was very good when my arm was ‘getting a hug.’
After the nurse stuff I got into a fun cartoon gown and we waited for Dr. Knott. I love my doctor…he’s so funny and nice! He listened to my chest and back, looked in my ears and mouth and checked me out. Apparently I had an ear infection (both ears, but worse in one) when I had my cold a few weeks ago. It’s getting better but there is still a lot of fluid in there. Once again, I showed no symptoms or discomfort that would have given Mummy or Daddy a clue that something other than a stuffy nose was going on.
Mummy and Daddy talked with Dr. Knott about all the things I can do and answered all of Dr. Knott’s questions. Apparently, I am way ahead developmentally on everything – wow! Mummy and Daddy were not surprised…they know I’m brilliant 😉
The best part of the visit? No shots!! My next shots won’t be until I’m 5 – hooray!! Mummy always opted for me to have all of my shots as early as possible and as many at a time as possible when I was little because she figured it was easier to do it when I was little and didn’t remember than wait until I was older. So glad she did!
My next visit will be at 2.5 years then again at 3 and annually after that.
