My Two-Month Checkup

Story told by: Brody

I had my two-month checkup today! Mommy and Daddy were placing bets on how much I was going to weigh because I am one big boy. Mommy thought I would weigh 14 1/2 pounds, and Daddy thought I would weigh 15 pounds. As you’ll soon see, they were both very wrong.

When we arrived at the office, I was weighed and measured.

While we waited for Nurse Amanda to bring in my stats, Mommy and I hung out. (Lainey and Henry went to play with Ivy and Mac, so Mommy and I had a special date together.)

Mommy accidentally scratched my face yesterday, thus the little scab. Lainey told someone today that I have that mark because Mommy pinched me really hard. That girl is going to be trouble.

Nurse Amanda came in, and before giving us the stats said, “I thought Brody looked like a big kid for his six-month checkup, but then I realized it was actually only his two-month checkup. Wow.”

Here are my stats:

Height: 25 inches (98th percentile)…….(Lainey was 23 1/4 inches, and Henry was 23 1/2 inches)

Weight: 18 pounds, 3 ounces (greater than 98th percentile – off the charts)…….(Lainey was 13 1/2 pounds, and Henry was 15 pounds, 5 ounces)

Head Circumference: 17 inches (greater than 98th percentile – off the charts)…….(Lainey and Henry both measured at 16 1/2 inches)

Here comes the third child for the winning measurements! Watch out world!

I sure have no trouble with growing! Dr. Mike checked with Mommy to make sure that I’m not eating too much, but after she told him how much I’m eating, as well as how often I’m eating, he said it sounds okay and that I’m just a big guy. He also said that I’m proportional, which is a great sign. Dr. Mike gave me a clean bill of health, and then turned me over to the nurse for some shots. Thanks a lot, Dr. Mike.

I was a little fussier this evening, but I managed to turn on the charm with some smiles.

See you in two months Dr. Mike!
