Last Friday we took both boys for their 3yr and 4mo checkup. I was worried about Scotty getting his shot because he is now fully aware of what is happening. I hate shots! I explained before we went that he would be getting a shot and that it was going to hurt but only for a minute. He said that he doesn't like shots and that we should go to another doctor and not get a shot! But everything went really well. Scotty said "Ow!" but was quickly distracted by the cool band-aid. Grant didn't start crying until his 2nd shot was done, cried through the 3rd and 4th shot but stopped crying as soon as I picked him up. My boys are so brave! They are both growing well. Scotty is still 50th percentile for both height and weight. Grant still has a little head- 75th for height, 60th for weight and only 10th for his head! I wondered if the doctor would raise her eyebrow when she found out Scotty is still not potty trained, but she just said ok and didn't think anything of it.
