Two Stats at Two

Yesterday was the two year old well-visit for my two two-year-olds. Enough "twos" for you?

I'm pleased to report that the boys are holding steady in the 10th percentile for weight and the 25th percentile for length. No wonder I have such a hard time finding pants for them that stay up!! One pieces and overalls are the best!

Despite their position on the percentile charts for weight and length, they still have big heads, comparatively speaking. Both are holding steady in the 75th percentile there. They take after my family in that respect. Not me specifically, but there happen to be a lot of big mouths heads in my family. ;)

One thing Hubby and I have always joked about was our hope that our children all get my eyes (no glasses) and his teeth (no braces). So at their appointment the doctor noted that that the boys didn't have much room in their mouths and some of their teeth looked a little crowded already. I meant to ask if that meant their mouths were on the small side (mine is, I still need the children's bit at the dentist when they do x-rays). But before I could ask she added that their bottom front teeth were turning in a little. I laughed and pointed to mine. "Like this?" I asked her. She laughed and said, "Okay, so we know where they get that from."

Maybe we should start saving up for braces now.

Unfortunately we also learned that our doctor is leaving. Her husband got a job out in the eastern part of the state and apparently both their families live in that area too. So they are moving, she's going to spend some time home with her kids and then maybe find some part-time work once they start going to school. I wish her luck but we'll miss her.

Now I have the unfortunate task of finding a new doctor. I could just stay in the same office and see another pediatrician, but I want to take some time to cover all my options. I've talked to at least one friend who is in the same insurance group I am and I've started polling co-workers. I have a feeling it is going to be a long process. At one point yesterday afternoon I was talking to someone about it and said I had a year before the boys had their next well visit so I had some time, except for sick visits, of course. Later I realized that, no, I had to find someone before Baby comes in December. Duh!!

Yeah, I still forget sometimes. Just smack me over the head every now and then.
