Just a quick one…
Big guy is 40.5 inches tall, and a whopping 35lbs. I knew he was getting heavy.
Little guy is 30 inches tall and 20lbs.
They’re both nice and healthy, mostly in the middle of the growth charts (which I don’t put a lot of stock in anyway, but whatever).
Only “bad” things from the visit were that the little guy has a slight heart murmur and the shots. One in each leg for each kiddo. There was lots of howling. Dh came bopping in after we’d been there for a little while (i.e. during his lunch break), and it was nice to have him there as an extra set of hands come shot time. Plus I wanted him to meet the doctor and all that. He likes the dr, too. I’m still bf’ing, which the dr seemed kinda happy about, after I told him I was aiming to keep the little guy boobed up until at least 2yo unless the kid has other ideas. I forget whether he was impressed that I nursed the big one until he was 28mo and I was 5mo pregnant with the little one and he self-weaned – but he didn’t give us a shocked or disgusted look.
So anyway, the heart murmur… I could be all freaked out about it (I do have a family history of heart problems, that’s how I expect to die, anyway), but I’m really not. I’ve heard I don’t know how many stories about kids outgrowing it that I’m not concerned. We’ll go back in a few months, and if it’s still there, we’ll discuss seeing a ped cardiologist in the next (big) town over. At the very least, it gives us some time to save up the money for such a visit.
