I took all three kiddos to their doctor today for a well check. I figured I needed to get them checked out before moving and needed to ask our Doctor some questions about how to proceed with shots as I have delayed some of them and have a waiver from Texas that is not good in Alabama. So, we chatted about all that and did the usual measurements of the girls.

I did Ellie's 4 year old check up three weeks early and Hadleys 18 month old check up 3 weeks early. Everything looked Great. Ellie passed her hearing and vision test with flying colors and I had Gavin retested since he failed the last hearing test and he passed as well. :) :) :)

Anyway, the girls are just going to be tiny girls. They are still on their own growth curve and doing well for them, but compared to the rest of the world, they are just petite and little. I'm thinking they got more of their Great Nanny and Morgan in them and not the Carpenter genes for height. Hadley actually moved up percentiles for height but holding behind on weight.

So...for Ellie's 4 year old check she was:

30 lbs. (10%) and 36 3/4 inches (3%)

And Hadley at 17.5 months:

21 lbs. 1 oz. (5%) and 30 3/4 inches (20%)

They didn't weigh Gavin as he's still a few months from being six, but he got a good report otherwise as well.

Hope all is going well with the pending move. Transioning the girls shots was one of my big challenges. Still, 1 1/2 years later, my well-visits take forever, because we are trying to figure out what they need. I never delayed anything, but they use a different schedule here, and I want to make sure they don't get anything twice......Good Luck!!! I am sure God has the perfect house and the perfect K class waiting for you. Someday looking back I know you will see how perfect his timing was.
