3 Year Well Visit

Judith had her first visit to the new pediatrician this morning; not for a sick visit, but for her 3 year well visit.  I was really impressed with the new doctor, especially since she knew exactly how much Judith weighed at her last clinic visit, which means they're actually communicating and getting her information from the clinic!

Judith managed to surprise me yet again, and was really, really good for her visit!  She had a few moments of crying, especially at the beginning, but for the most part she cooperated and even chatted with the doctor.  Dr. C. got a charge out of Judith identifying a stethoscope and otoscope (with the proper terminology), and telling her what each was for!  I said, "Can you tell Judith absolutely loves Doc McStuffins?"  I have to say it really is hilarious to hear a 3 year old walking around the house saying, "Hey!  Where's my 'odorscope'?  Oh, here it is!  Can you say 'ahh' for me?"

Everything is looking and sounding good!  Judith's lungs are very clear, and her abdomen felt normal and soft.  Those are always 2 of my big concern points when we have a well visit or a clinic visit, and hearing that everything is good helps take away some of the worries.

Judith's 27 lbs 6 oz, which is right below the 25%, and she's now over 3 ft tall, but just barely!  She's 36 1/4", which is right above the 25%.  I can't believe we're finally hitting percentiles above 10%, but we still have some work to do to get her up to the 50% where she should ideally be.
