My healthy boys

Yesterday was a busy day!

In the morning, Alexander went to his first ever dentist appointment. He was perfectly cooperative and I was both amazed and proud. He was awesome! Granted, one would be hard-pressed NOT to cooperate in such a kid-friendly environment. They had video games and climbing stuff in the waiting room, a waterfall wall, and themed exam rooms. We were in the pirate room! Alexander was an incredible patient while they counted and cleaned his teeth. They said his teeth looked good and that we were doing a good job with brushing. Hooray! Thanks, Amanda, for the recommendation. :)

In the afternoon, we took Jack for his six month well visit. He now weighs 18.5 pounds (75th %) and is 28.5 inches long (97th %). Another tall boy! We checked off all the necessary developmental milestones, so he's doing great. He did have to get 5 vaccinations, though. Poor kid.

All in all, though, a good day. I am so proud and blessed to have two healthy little boys! :)

Oh my. Five vaccinations in one day? Oy. Glad to hear both the dentist and the doctor went so well. Jasper has the dentist again on Tuesday, and I am dreading it...maybe next time Alexander goes he can come watch? ;)

Hooray for healthy boys! Yael and I need to make another stab at the dentist. Last time she wouldn't even open her mouth, but I'm hoping she'll be more cooperative this time.

Yay for Kids Teeth! I love that it is so fun there that they don't feel like they are at a medical office. Good job Xander.

Jack certainly is a big boy. Is he measuring right on with Alexander? They seem like they are on a similar path with height and weight.

Jack seems to run almost exactly the same height as Alexander at each age, but leaner.
