Dr's appointment

All the kids went for their well child check ups today, I figure they may as well all go at once.
The doctor thought they were all doing great and growing the way they should. All was going well until it was time for the dreaded needles. They were all running away from me and yelling that is was someone else's turn, it was funny. Peyton went first and did really well, then Caden was the next in line. He also did great, but wanted Daddy as soon as it was done because mean ole Mommy held his arms while he got the needle. Then I grabbed Sydney and pulled her pants down and sat her on the table. She had already pulled them up in the second it took me to sit her on the table and was yelling "no, don't want it, don't like it!!!!" Needless to say she was not amused by the whole process.
Spencer was last and was still insisting he was NOT getting a needle. He was so mad even after it was done, he was telling me through his tears "I told you I didn't want a needle and you MADE me have one!!!" I felt so bad!!!
He even admitted it didn't hurt anymore, but that didn't matter.
We took them for frozen yogurt afterwards and then strolled through the park. We were down by the children's museum and figured we would go in for a little bit. We were cautious as that is where Caden got rotovirus from last spring. I think I used half the bottle of purel on their little hands when we left.
When we got home and undressed them they were all pointing out their boo boos and then started chanting and marching "no more boo boo's, no more boo boo's" All they needed were little picket signs, it was so cute.
Here are their heights and weights.

43 lbs (75%)
45 inches (90%)

37 lbs (95%)
41 inches(90%)

35 lbs (90%)
38 1/4 inches (75%)

29 1/2 lbs (50%)
37 inches (50%)

Cute picture once again - the 4 of them are taking much better together pictures. They seem to be looking in the same direction and smiling more.
You are one gutsy lady to drive down for their apts alone - I hope Bob met you for the visit.
Love, S

I always hate having to take Noah for his needles. I know it is for the best but try convincing him of that :) I am amazed at how big the kids are getting. It is a good thing Sydney is tough...I cannot believe how much lighter she is than the rest of them.

Poor little ones!! It doesn't end Kim, Shawn still hates needles and was mad at me during highschool when I signed his forms to get his Tetanus shot. I am pretty sure he said exactly what Spencer said to you and Shawn was 16 at the time!!!
