Check-Ups and a Prayer Request

This week the boys both went for their check-ups. Ryder went for his three year old check-up and Landon went for his four month check-up. It all came full circle for our new pediatrician when I told her we came to her because I went to her as a kid. She said we made her feel old haha.

Ryder was really excited to go for him after so many appointments for Mommy and Landon over the last year. He was also excited Landon got to do everything with him.

Ryder weighed in at 35.5 pounds, was in the 90th percentile for height, and the 80th for his weight. The doctor was very pleased he was potty trained and in school. She said we are doing a great job on everything and highly recommended some swim lessons for this Florida boy. We will see if we get around to them. His Auntie Hailey seems to be doing a fine job on her own.

Baby Landon had a great check-up as well. He weighed in at 17.15 pounds and was in the 80th percentile for both height and weight. We got the go ahead to move him onto stage 2 foods, the baby meats (gross... never did these with Ryder), and baby yogurt. He was hitting all his milestones and a healthy little guy just like his brother.

Both boys got shots. Ryder just got the flu shot, and Landon got his vaccines he was due for. He has to wait until six months for his flu shot.

After our appointment we headed to the Little Dipper pool to hang out with Sophia and Dyson.

This is as fun as these guys play dates get these days. I'm sure they will be a handful soon though!

This week I was reminded that you can't always walk your kids into their check-ups and walk out an hour later with a clean bill of health. It is something I think many of us take for granted. I am asking for our friends and family to please take some time out of your day to say a prayer for some of our baseball family who lost their little girl in the seventh month of pregnancy due to complications. We love you guys and are praying for you!
