The boys had their well child visits today. Wyatt's 2 month and Bryan's 12 year checks. They both did really well and sadly both had to have shots. Bryan did really well and barely flinched. Wyatt screamed up and down the hallways all the way to the car. LOL He was MAD at me afterward. Poor baby! Hopefully his little legs are less tender tomorrow and he stops holding a grudge against me. he he he
Wyatt is 11 pounds 3 ounces and 21 inches long. He is growing steadily and the doctor was happy with his weight gain. They are keeping a close eye on his weight because we still don't know what is going on with the metabolic disorder. He is short. But I am short. And Bryan was pretty darn short when he was Wyatt's age. And look at Bryan now! HA HA HA Wyatt is steadily gaining weight and slowly getting longer and as long as he continues to grow the doctor is not worried.
He asked a bunch of questions about Wyatt's development and checked him over. Everything looked good. I asked him about Wyatt's right testicle. I checked it before we left for the appointments. It was there but it was not down yet. The doctor says to me "Ya it dropped." WHAT?! WHEN?! LOL Apparently between home, McDonalds and then the doctor's office his right testicle finally dropped. HA HA HA How funny is that? What a fancy trick that boy pulled! The doctor laughed and told Wyatt he has pretty good timing. LOL
Bryan's check up was pretty quick. He asked him a few questions and looked him over. It was funny to see Bryan's long legs moving around in a similar fashion to the way he checks Wyatt's hips. Man that kid is getting long. Bryan is 5 feet 1 inch tall and 140 pounds. That puts him in the 75% for height and 97% for weight. The doctor said the percentiles can sound kind of scary but he is not at all worried. Bryan has reached puberty a bit earlier then his peers and it shows in his measurements. He said he can visually see that Bryan is not at all over weight and in comparison to his height he is pretty normal. He was not thrilled that Bryan does not play any sports but was happy that Bryan does help out with farm chores so he is getting outside and moving. I have a geek not a jock. He prefers to read, play video games and he is good at math but just doesn't enjoy any sports. Bryan might be a geek but I am pretty sure my geek could bench press most of the jocks his age. HA HA HA
So they are both healthy and doing well. They are up to date on their shots and the nurse was going to fax Bryan's records to the school district so he can go to the first day of school. Bummer for Bryan. HA HA HA Next visit in 2 months. Unless we get a call from the geneticist before then and he wants us to come in to discuss test results. I hope the tests show nothing and we can just be done with the whole metabolic disorder junk. Until then I have to go wake the baby every 4 hours to feed him. Ya right ... like Wyatt sleeps for 4 hours straight ... like ever! LOL
