Do it for the Lollipop

That time of year has come again. The time when the girls needed to go in for their yearly checkup at the doctor. Aislynn of course had her 18 month check up so she is getting close to starting the yearly ones.

Luckily, the girls have not been sick enough to take to the doctor over the past year so Kambry was a little nervous about it. McKenna though, she gets excited about anything. She knew that she didn't need any shots this time so that always helps the mood too. Kambry, on the other hand, I wasn't so sure she would escape without a round of shots that they need before going to school. She is going to be starting VPK (Voluntary Pre Kindergarten) in the fall.

Everyone did great with the doctor, all the girls are right on track and doing what is expected of them at their ages. I don't have all the measurements but I do have weights and %.
Aislynn 21 lbs (10%)She has been following that curve all along
Kambry 31 lbs (25%) I actually thought that she might have dropped down but she also stayed right where she had been
McKenna 45 lbs (70%) Wow, she grew some over the past year. I guess that explains all the eating she likes to do. She could eat adult meals now..the kids meals are not enough half of the time we get them.

Well, the doctor did say that Kambry needed a round of shots and though she was scared about it and not happy about it I think she was ready to do it. We went over to the Vaccination clinic and were told that they didn't have a copy of her shot record so we would have to come back with a copy. I was a little disappointed because I would have to be going back when you would think that the doctor would have all those records already. Also, we were all there and now I need to drive back another day. The best thing that came out of it was that Kambry was happy she didn't have to have needles stuck in her.
Also, what made them all behave very well and do everything they needed was they all received a lollipop at the end. Some days I think they only go to the doctor in order to get the lollipop. Hey, whatever works right?
