I took both boys for their annual checkup last week and got great reports all around!
Maxwell is 47 1/4 inches tall (50th-75th %) and 47 lbs (50th %). He’s a steadily growing! He’s always been right in that 50th – 75th % range. He grew exactly 2 inches since last year and gained just under 7 lbs. Good stuff!
Spencer is 43 1/4 inches tall and weighs 43.6 lbs (both 75th to 95th %). Again, he’s always been in that % and is growing just as he should! Since last year he has has grown exactly 2 inches and gained 4 lbs. Strong and steady!
For comparison, Maxwell at 5 was 42 and 3/4 inches tall and weighed 36 lbs. He’s always been skinny! 🙂
In what was not my smartest move, I took Samantha with us so she could get her flu shot. I was trying to avoid another trip to the doctor with her but, man she was disruptive during the visit with Dr. Walley! She wanted to do everything except sit quietly! This picture hilariously sums it up…
But, we got it done and everyone got their flu shot. Spencer also had to get his 5 year shots which wasn’t fun. He’s a shot pro but he usually gets them in his arm. When he found out they were going into his leg, that just undid him! I had to hold him down while he was screaming his face off right into my ear. Good times. Thankfully no more shots like that for several years!
And, because I like to do things like this, here are their yearly photos with Dr. Walley!

Always thankful for good doctor reports and healthy, growing kids!
