flu shots and physicals...

Both Tate and Cason had their annual well child appointments.  In addition, all 3 boys got their flu shots while we were there.


He weighed 47lbs and I can't remember his height.  He was in the 55th percentile for weight and the 56th percentile for height.  He volunteered to go first for his flu shot and didn't shed a tear or whine whatsoever.  He flinched just a little bit and then hopped up and thanked the nurse. that kid!

With the little reaction Tate made, Wesley volunteered to go 2nd.  He said "owie" and then said, "OH...ah done.", hopped up and was tearing apart the room like usual.  Yup...also amazing.

Then poor Cason.  He was giggling at me when the needle went in, then came the silent cry.  You know, the one where you're just begging them to take a breath.  He finally did.  It was so sad.  It was over and he was smiling again about 10 seconds later.  Love that kid.  He is progressing so well and weighed in at 23lbs.  He is much smaller on the about the 15th percentile for both height and weight.  However, the most exciting part of his appointment was finding out that his head grew 1 whole centimeter in just 3 months!!!!  This is HUGE people.  His head size is our biggest concern.  He is microcephalic and in order for him to continue to progress and develop, his head MUST GROW!  So I was soooo happy to hear this news!  His condition is different than some children with microcephaly.  His doctor said that unlike many other children with microcephaly, the growth of his brain will aid in his head growing.  This makes sense because us has learned a lot and done a lot more in these last 3 months...his brain is growing and so is his head! :) 

So proud of all of our boys!
