15 month and 15 week well babies

Coincidentally, I scheduled Evan's 15 month well baby and my 15 week baby checkup on the same day. Of course, Evan is closer to 16 months now, but with both being appointments in Raleigh it made sense to knock them out on the same day. I'm pleased to say our mini marathon of office visits went well this morning, and Evan was a trooper even though it meant skipping his morning nap. With Thomas the train and plenty of snacks on hand, he hardly noticed. Both visits were great and, praise the Lord, showed healthy growing babies!

Evan's stats:
Weight: Almost 22 pounds and finally breaking the 10th percentile!
Height: 31 inches in the 25th-50th percentiles
Overall our Dr. Pepper was very happy with his growth and impressed by his developmental and verbal skills-A+!

Baby #2:
This appointment was mostly about mommy's stats, but we did get to hear the baby's tiny heartbeat and it was good and healthy in the 150's. Thankfully, I'm feeling much better this week and starting to see some relief from my pesky headaches. I'm hoping this is a good thing coming into the 2nd trimester!
Weight gain: 2 pounds and now 109
Iron stick-boo! Not surprisingly starting to dip, iron foods here we come!

We got to see Dr. Anderson today, who we love and above all is the doctor who delivered Evan! Chris and I are collecting many a story from this guy, and would be so excited if he was the one to walk through the door on delivery day. Since our practice has many doctors who rotate, I was never able to get a proper picture of our honorary stork, so here it is!

Hi! You don't know me, but I used to know Chris, way back in the day! And somehow started following your blog a while back. 1) Congrats on baby #2, 2) I also go to Blue Ridge OB/GYN and Dr. Anderson was my 1st OB Dr. on the rotation and informed us at our 1st Ultrasound that he thought we were having a boy, and it turned out to be a girl! So I have a story about him too! haha! He is a very nice Dr. !

Good Luck with everything!
