Two Healthy Boys

I took the boys in today for their annual wellness check-up. They were caught up on their shots and everything looked great!

The only issue seems to be Caleb's vision, so I'll be making him an appointment to see an eye doctor sometime this summer. Based on the pediatrician's analysis, he may need glasses. He said that once before, though, and when I had Caleb checked out, his vision was fine. Still, since my vision isn't so great, it'll be good to have him checked.

When the appointment was over with, the nurse gave me a copy of the boys' shot records and growth charts. It's interesting to see how things have progressed in the 3 years they've been seeing Dr. Sonnen.

Caleb has gained 23 pounds over the last 3 years and has grown a little over 12 inches. He's currently in the 26% for weight (taking into consideration that a lot of kids are overweight and possibly skew the curve) and in the 50% for height.

Jacob has gained 12 pounds over the last 3 years and has grown 10 inches. He's in the 57% for weight, and has consistently dropped in the percentile every year. For height, he's in the 92%!

It's fun to see how they've grown! When you see them every day, you tend not to notice these things so much - just when the seasons change and their jeans don't fit anymore!

Menu Plan Monday #39

Monday: Jacob's choice - ended up being scrambled eggs, sausage, and toast. (Billy took Caleb out to eat at Taco Bell, where they ended up getting pizza from Pizza Hut Express. Then they went out and bought us a Wii so we can all play Rock Band now that we're hooked!)

Tuesday: hamburger steak, potatoes, salad, and Banana Pudding Bites (a Sandra Lee recipe, which I will post on my recipe blog soon)

Wednesday: Asian Noodle Skillet (modified from a Pampered Chef recipe, which I will also post on my recipe blog soon)

Thursday: leftovers

Friday: pancakes & sausage

Saturday: grilled cheese sandwiches (Our small group meets at 7:00, so we'll need something quick.)

Sunday: ???
