2-yr checkup

Owen had his 2-yr well visit this morning. He was very well-behaved for the nurse and our favorite doctor in his practice, Dr. Reilly. The nurse did his measurements and my guess was spot-on for weight. Here are his stats:

Weight - 29lbs (50%)
Length - 36" (75%)
Head Cir - 19 & 3/4" - 75%

He's our growing boy! After he was measured, Dr Reilly came in. She sings little songs to the kids as she checks them and Owen just loves it. She said he looks great. Then it was time to get his shots. The nurse came in and as she swiped his arms with alcohol, I covered his eyes so he wouldn't see what she was about to do. That was a good move on my part, that, and the nurse was super quick. He whined a tiny bit at the first one, but that was it. No hysterical crying, which was nice. He got his Hep A shot and his flu shot and two really cool Halloween band-aids. :)

When we checked out he got to pick a sticker and chose a big Elmo one to wear to school. He made it to school in time for snack and joined right in with his class after giving me a kiss goodbye.
