Is it really Jan. 3rd already?

No pictures today. Kacey went to her 15 month check up Monday, and we are all still recovering. (Loved the pediatrician by the way, thanks Missy)

Kacey is in the 10th percentile for her weight. Is that crazy!? I double checked it, because I thought for sure it was a mistake... but it's right. She's in the 25th for her height, so the doctor said he wasn't too concerned. But let it be known that this child eats and eats and eats. She doesn't look too skinny, does she to you??? Of course then we have Kylie, who's in the 90th percentile for her height and the 25th for her weight... oh to be tall and thin, I'm hoping those Amy Hansen genes are coming through on my husband's side.

Kacey got 3 shots. She doesn't take shots well. Kylie was always cake with shots. No temperature, not fussy... no problems. Kacey is definitely a different child... 3 days later and she's still all mushy. She sat on Matthew's lap all day Tuesday just to be cuddled. And don't ask about how she's not sleeping. Her shot pricks are black and blue too, one thigh even seems swollen... (I'm going to watch that.)

HOWEVER, Kylie also got her flu shot that morning. It wasn't planned, but the doctor looked at her and suggested we just do it. She says to him, "No, we're here for Kacey's checkup. Not me." Well 2 screaming kids and 4 shots later, we were on our way home. I had to laugh though, Kylie sat on the table first and got her shot in her arm... and screamed her head off. Then Kylie moved aside to the chairs and Kacey laid on the table, she was screaming before anything even started. She was must have just known it was going to be bad.

Glad you liked him. Was it Dorway you saw? Sorry about the shots, those are awful. Luke is finally at the age where he doesn't cry, but he is done with shots now. Wouldn't ya know. Both my girls go in a couple weeks so we'll have stories to compare.

Shots are never fun, but it is one of those necessary evils. Glad everyone is healthy. Dallin always says that when he is supposed to get shots that the doctor should give the shots to Cade because Cade needs it more. Even when they are little kids try to work the system. Hope you guys had a great New Years!
