A Day at the Doctor's

On Tuesday, Lizzy had her one year well check. I left Logan at my mom's house so my hands weren't as full. Lizzy is growing well enough. Here are her stats.
Weight: 20 lbs 15 oz - 50%
Height 31 inches - 96%
Head Circumference 17 inches - 55%

She started bawling when the doctor took her out of my arms, so we know she doesn't like strangers. She was also horrified that the nurse had the audacity to pierce her legs 3 times!

When the appointment was over I picked Logan up from my Mom's and we headed home. The whole way home Logan kept begging me to take him to the doctor. I explained to him that he didn't need to see the doctor. Once we got home it only took Logan 2 hours to figure out how to make sure he could see the doctor that day as well. He was running up and down our hallway then tripped and fell headfirst into our nightstand. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the initial gash. (James has yet to forgive me for not taking that picture.) But, we do have pictures of Logan's 3 stitches.

Call me strange, but I like the idea of his having a visible scar later in his life. Whenever I see scars on other people I'm always so curious as to what the story is. I can imagine up the most interesting battle stories. Logan's story won't be that cool, but he'll have people wondering, right?

I just keep waiting for the day we'll have to do that... At least it was only three, right??

That's exactly where Myka had her first stitches! I hope you're better at putting scar cream on it than I was.
