Checkups for the Girls

February 29th, 2008 · No Comments

We took the girls in for checkups this week. Kaylee is doing well; she weighs in at 14 pounds, 2 ounces and is 2 feet, 1 inch long. This puts her in the 50th percentile for weight and 77th percentile for height. Rayna weighed 25 lbs.pounds and is 2 feet, 11 inches tall. She is in the 27th percentile for weight and 71st percentile for height. Both got shots but Kaylee got the worst of it with 4 sticks. Poor kid.

Nicole took Rayna back a couple of days later to have her eyes checked. Ever since she was born, we’ve been aware that one of her eyes tracks a little slower than the other. If you look on our photo page, you can see what I mean. We held off doing anything because kids often outgrow this. But now she’s two and Nicole has a history of this kind of thing in her family, so we decided to have it checked out. The doctor felt that it wasn’t very severe and she may well grow out of it yet. So, we’re going to wait a year and take another look. If she still is showing symptoms, we’ll need to start talking about treatment. Rayna withstood the tests like a real trooper and I’m told that she said “hi” to just about every patient in the Mayo Clinic as she was walking to the doctor’s office. Nicole said that she got a lot of smiles that day.
