Lou's checkup

On the 19th Lou had a visit with the doc. I wasn't sure how it was going to go because he hasn't been there for himself in over a year. At his 2-year-old appointment Dr. J told me that he needed to get some sort of doctor toy so that he didn't get so scared. We did and when he went in for his 3-year-old he was still freaked out. Doctors don't always have all the answers.

What probably helped this time is that Charlie had to get his iron levels checked by having a pin-prick on his finger. Lou and Ben associated that with a shot and Lou wasn't going to be shown up by his baby brother! Turns out Lou had to get TWO shots that day and I wasn't aware of it, so I had told him "no shots." He was a brave, brave boy, however, and for his bravery he received not one, but TWO stickers. Who knew the power that construction stickers held?

If you're interested, here are his stats:
  • 56.5 lbs.
  • 45"
  • BP 98/68
  • Vision:
      • 20/40 right
      • 20/30 left
Not sure if you needed all that, but the doc was very happy with his check up and so I thought I'd share. On a side note, we saw Austin at Jimmy & Abbe's wedding last night and he was commiserating with our lil' Lou. Although he had no words of wisdom to share for shopping for clothes (he said to talk to Douger and MB), he said he saw a lot of himself in Louie (a possible college scholarship, perhaps??).
