One Year Check-Up

Conway went to Dr. Davis this morning for his 12 month check up and shots. He got four shots and was very unhappy about that. He made it through and settled down and then as soon as I laid him back down to dress him so we could leave and go to the dentist, he must have thought I was laying him back down and he was getting more shots because he started crying hysterically which makes him cough and gag and of course, vomit the entire feeding he had just finished! The tube came up and all. He was a mess. The nurse helped me clean the exam table so I could clean him up and dress him. It was awful! Dr. Davis is happy with his growth and developmental progress. He is in the 50th %ile for weight and head size and the 75th %ile for height. He'll go back somewhere between 15-18 months unless he gets sick before then.

Then it was on to the dentist. The snow had started by this time and getting both kids to the car, buckled in and stroller put away was a chore. I guess I'm out of practice since we really haven't gone anywhere all together since last summer! We made it to the dentist and were watching the local news in the waiting room and seeing how there were inches of snow in most parts of the city and county, but right around us the roads were great. This lasted until we got home and then it started a lot more. Thank God that the roads were clear and we made it everywhere safely. The dentist agreed that it was good to get him in to have a look since he has all that reflux and we talked about down the road possibly putting a protective layer (crowns) over his teeth to protect them from all the acid. He counted his teeth and took a look. Mookie had a turn too and did great. She let the doctor have a look-see and count her teeth. He said she is delayed in getting her back ones in(duh, she didn't get her first tooth until almost a year old!) but they are in good shape. She goes back in two weeks for a cleaning.

Thanks for looking in!
