4 Year Old Appointment


We went into for Charlotte's 4 year old appointment yesterday. She was really excited that it was her turn to go to the doctor since Max has been quite a few times lately - between his ear infections and well visits.

She chatted the doctor's ear off while Max was trying to hurl himself off a chair and I was trying to answer the million and one questions they were asking me. Like, "Does she know the difference between fantasy & reality?" Hmmm, not sure about that one.

They took her away for vision test, hearing test, and height and weight. She's 43 lbs (92%) & 41.3" (82%). The doctor again brought up the fact that her BMI was a little on the high side. I told her there is really nothing else I can do. We have worked on getting wholesome food into her and really try to lay off the sweets, plus, she's very active. It seems like an uphill battle with the sweets. They are EVERYWHERE. We're just doing the best we can. I think she's pretty darn perfect.

She did have a little problem with the hearing test - there was a certain decibel she couldn't hear in the left ear. We'll do a follow up screening when I take Max in for his 18 month well check appointment. If the results are they same she wants me to see a specialist.

She is a happy, healthy 4 year old with a big personality. I can't wait to see what this year brings for her.
