Henry had his 3 year visit this morning with Dr. Sakkal. It was full fledged big-boy physical this time. He checked out as healthy as a horse! Height was 38 inches and weight was 32 pounds, both of which are just over the 50th %ile. They don't measure head circumference any longer, and instead they check his blood pressure (or an arm hug, as she called it), which was 84/42.
Dr. Sakkal asked if I'd like him to try the vision and hearing tests as well. He said they usually get about 20% success rate at this age, but it would be worth a try if he was having a good day (which he was); otherwise they'd do it again anyways at the 4 year visit. I couldn't stop giggling during the vision test, it was just too stinkin cute!
The girl would ask him questions like, "What do you see?"
"What is the clown pointing to?"
"What color is the flower?"
"Lellow (yellow)!" "Mommy, you wanna play the game too?"
By the time the hearing test came around, I think we'd lost his interest. It was the good ol' 'raise your hand when you hear the beep' test. He kept saying "Mommy, I can't hear the music yet" as I'm sure he was expecting to hear some Pearl Jam like he listens to with his headphones on Daddy's iPod. The nurse and I were both giggling this time. She would remind him multiple times, "Henry, every time you hear the beep, make sure you raise your hand for me," then he would proudly raise both hands as far in the air as he could when there was no beep to be heard :)
Like I said, they checked him out from head to toe. Yep, they even asked for a urine sample from him. He sure thought that was cool, going potty in a cup!
On a side note, I had my 24 week prenatal appointment today as well. Baby's heartrate was 144. Everything looked good. Dr. Nadeau tried to externally feel if he could tell what position the baby was in, but no luck, baby's too small to tell. That was it - quick visit :)
