what's up doc?

this week has been full of doctor's visits...the boys both had their well check ups on tuesday and i had a physical today. i'll spare you the details of my physical, as i know it's the boy's stats you are interested in :) i will say though, that i am below my pre-preggers weight, which i was REALLY happy to see! i can't compare jacob's 6 month stats to andrew's, because i can't find andrew's 6 month info. yes...i'm "that mom"...for some reason, i go straight from 4 months to 9 months in his baby book medical info! i can tell you though, that both boys are tall and thin!

andrew - 4 year stats
height: 40.25 in. (50th percentile)
weight: 35.4 lbs. (50th percentile)

jacob - 6 month stats
height: 27.75 in. (90th percentile)
weight: 17.1 lbs. (50th percentile)

both boys survived their shots...andrew had 3 and jacob had 4! it was me however, who almost lost it at the end! get this...when andrew was getting his 3rd shot, he started to cry and said "i guess i wasn't good after all." we had been saying "good job" so much throughout the appointment, because he was answering the docs questions and listening to her so well. turns out, he thought he was getting the shots because he hadn't been good during the appointment! brought tears to my eyes and i felt just horrible! we explained that he was getting shots to keep him healthy. he mentioned it again this morning and i told him that i was going to get shots today at my doc appointment too. he was glad to see my bandaid this afternoon when i picked him up from school. luckily, he didn't ask if i got the shot because i wasn't good at the doctor's office!!!
