We Love Our Doctor

One for the baby book...

Maxwell and Ella had their two year wellness check this week. Mike was out of town working so I took them alone. Past visits alone have either been fine or horrible with lots of tears. We haven't been in a long time so I tried to make them excited about the visit. I brought up a picture of Dr. B. (who we love!) and showed them how she held them when they were little babies. I explained that she would look at their eyes/ears/mouth. By the time we were in the car on our way you would have thought we were going Disneyland- they were excited. They did really, really well. They thought the whole experience was cool and they only had one shot each :)

Here she is! She did just what Mom said:

Maxwell: weight, 30.7
height, 34 1/4

Ella: weight, 25.3
height, 33 1/2

Happy, healthy kids.
