4 year check up!

So Lola and Ellie had their 4 year old check up today! Man was it a doozie... It started out great up until the shots... Warning four year old shots suck! Our girls normally do fine for shots, but these were a different ball game all together. Poor Babies. But overall we did get a clean bill of health and development. Here are their updates stats. 

weight: 32lbs (45th percentile)
height: 39.25 inches (25th percentile)
BMI: 14.5 (25th percentile)
hearing: passed
vision: 20/40 (hopefully this score was a measure of her ability to take the vision test and not her actual vision, in any case we are going to follow up with a pediatric ophthalmologist to rule that out, especially since I was practically blind until I had laser surgery 12 years ago)

weight: 37lbs (60th percentile)
height: 40.75 inches (75th percentile)
BMI: 15.5 (50th percentile)
hearing: passed
vision: 20/20

After a combined total of eight shots I thought these little ladies could use some ice cream.
 After all, a spoonful of sugar is the best medicine right?

It is surely not taken for granted that we have healthy children who are thriving. 
We are so blessed and thank God every day. It never fails that in anticipation for these annual check ups, I can't help but have a heavy heart for all the parents that are not as lucky and do not get a clean bill of health for the children.
