3 Year and 15 Month Check-Ups

I have one word to sum up the check-ups at the doctor today and that is "Whew!". First off, after today, I am glad that they will no longer have coinciding appointments because trying to pay attention to Emma while constantly chasing down Josh was a task. While we were in the waiting room, Josh would point and say "fish" to the fish tank like he was really interested and then would look at me and make a break for it. Once we got back into our room, he kept trying to take off from there as well until the Nurse and I finally got smart and closed the door. One of the routine questions must have been something about whether is he is walking because she chuckled over that one. Since Emma is now three years old, she had to have her blood pressure taken and did really well with it. Neither of them had any problem hitting their "milestones". One question for Emma was, "If you draw a circle on a piece of paper, can she try to copy it?". The short answer is that I can just tell her to draw one and she will (shameful brag on my girl). At any rate, no problems with development in either kid and they both did great and were in good health overall except for the fact that Josh has an infected right ear and Emma may or may not have an infected right eye. They both had colds last week so I am guessing that is the culprit. Thankfully both of them don't have any other symptoms and hopefully it will stay that way.

As for the stats:

Emma @ 3 years old is 38 1/4 inches tall and 31 pounds
Josh @ 15 months old is 30 1/4 inches tall and 26 pounds 9 ounces

Just a note, I am not buying the height on Josh since that is exactly what he was at 12 months and let's just say that I am not impressed with the accuracy of the method they are using to get his height.
