She Did It!

Today I took Evie for her two-year visit to the pediatrician.

And we have big news... At 22 pounds and 15 ounces, she is FINALLY ON THE WEIGHT CHARTS! Yahoo! She just makes it into the 4th percentile, but we are so happy to see her there.

I was so proud of Evie today. I prepped her beforehand so she understood she would be getting two shots. I told her it would hurt, but only for a second. She seemed happy at the prospect of having another boo-boo and asked for Dora Band-Aids. Two Dora Band-Aids. And gum afterward.

She hammed it up for the receptionist.

Receptionist: Oh, hi Cutie! How old are you?
Evie: Two!
Receptionist: What is your name?
Evie: Sleeping Beauty!

She scored high marks for her development and didn't even cry when she got her shots. Lexi even gave her two extra Band-Aids, in addition to her Dora ones. Evie promptly stuck a shiny glitter strip on a microscopic scratch on her finger, and a bright pink strip on an old and fading injury on her ankle.

As I paid our copay, Evie proudly showed off her wounds. And then she patted my butt and loudly announced "Mommy, you have a boo-boo on your bottom!" (I do. It's a tiny scab from my very last Progesterone in Oil injection.) The receptionist looked up at me and giggled. I turned very, very red.

I just realized that I no longer have any secrets.

I'm so proud for Evie -- it sounds like she did great! I'm sure I have many days of spilled secrets to come as well. Hopefully it won't be too embarrassing! When my sister was little, she told her teachers that our mom cooked naked! (not true!)

Oh my she is just too much, I bet she is a blast to be around. She is so funny and glad to hear she is on the charts, I know my boys are always in the 10th percentile but they are very healthy just small I guess.

Yay, Evie! How well I know that feeling of joy when they finally make it ON the charts - Savannah was OFF the charts for so long that it just became normal. She's still only about 26-27 pounds at 3 years old, but oh well - they're just going to be cute and petite, right? :)

Sassy has always been low on the growth chart. You never know what will come out of children's mouths.

Hey all~ good stuff Sarah - I thought I knew you pretty well - now even more lol. Congrats, sleeping Beauty for making the chart - I'm going off the other end.

Sara said...

Yay for weight gain! And no, once the children can talk, there are no more secrets. Big Z told a complete stranger once that "bread makes my mommy poop". Oh yes, it could have been worse!

(My word verification is tater, and I find it funny cause that's my dog's name!)

She's just a petite beautiful little thing, isn't she?

Momma said...

I am laughing so hard right now....she is too much!! And you would never tell by her spunk she just made the charts. I would say she has been there all along. :)

Heather said...

Well, at least she didn't slap Dora on your backside.

Yay for growing! My kids have always been the opposite. I am trying to slow them down.

WTG Evie! What a big girl she was with her shots too. I know that made it easier on you as well.

Kim said...

Proud of her!

And, yes, you won't have anything private any more. My 9 year old boy, even though he now knows better, still blurts out things I really don't need the world knowing. :)
