Doctor And Dentist Adventures

Last Tuesday July 27th I took the kids to a check up with their new/old doctor. It is the doc that they seen for the first year of their lives and then due to switching insurance we had to switch but now we switched again so we are able to go back to Dr Flynn which I was very happen about. I really liked the doctor we went to after but he is alot harder to get into and only works 2 to 3 day a week since she had a baby plus I really liked Dr Flynn and didnt ever want to change in the first place. Since it has been a couple years since they had been to him I wanted to get them in for a routine check up and make sure they were all caught up on shots and stuff like that. It worked out good since Jaydan needed his 4 year well check anyways. When Dr Flynn walked in he was so shocked at how big my kids were! They both had him laughing so hard from the moment he walked in. Within the first 30 seconds as he was laughing he said "Oh this is going to be so fun" We talked for a while to catch up on all their health stuff the last couple years and he did their exams and had so much fun the entire time. My kids were being so cute and funny. He said they both are doing great which is always a relief to hear. He was amazed with Maddies vocabulary and her understanding of things. Thats what happens when you want to be just like your big brother :-) He told me where they both were percentage wise for their height, weight and such. I knew Maddie was tall for her age and I knew Jaydan was short for his but I was really shocked at how tall and short they really are! Jaydan is 3' 2.78" tall which puts him in the 15.27% compared to other kids! He is a little runt like his daddy. He now weighs 36 lbs 12.8 oz which puts him at the 55.37% with weight. Maddie is 3' 1.75" which puts her at the 86.60% compared to other kids her age!! She now weighs 28 lbs 14 oz which puts her in the 48.68%. She is my tall and skinny girl. Both have great eye sight and hearing. All in all it was a great appt. He did say they both needed some shots and they needed to take some blood from Maddie to run some tests. First was poor Maddie. I knew if Jay went first and she saw his reaction we would have to tie Maddie down to do hers. Both kids of course cried and were upset for a little while after but they both did so good. I was so proud of them. Then it was time to draw Maddies blood and after she was already tortured the second I laid her on the table she started crying :-( Of course after being so good even after being tortures I had to take them to the pharmacy to pick some treats. They each picked a bug juice and a laffy taffy. It was fun to go and see how big they both are getting. Its very bitter sweet that they are getting so big.

On Thursday July 29th I took the kids to their first ever dentist appts. I know Im a huge slacker since they say to start taking them when they turn a year but hey I love to procrastinate :-) I found a dentist that only works on kids that has a fun place for kids and has a tv in each room so they can watch a movie while being examined. I was pretty nervous to take them because I didnt know how they would do since they had never been. They loved playing in the play boat in the waiting room til we got called back. Jaydan wanted to be worked on first so he climbed on the chair, put on the headphones to listen to the movie and put on the sunglasses since the light was bothering his eyes. He looked so big and cute! He did AWESOME! Did exactly as she asked and enjoyed getting his teeth cleaned. Then it was Maddie turn. Once she got the headphones and glasses on she was ready to go. She also did AMAZING! She did everything the lady asked her too and he was loving it all too. I was SO proud of both of them. They did xrays on both of them then we waited for the dentist to come tell us how their teeth were. There was some problems with Jaydans mouth. First he has a growth in his gums that we need to take him to a gum specialist for. We need it tested to see if its something they will need to remove. Also that child has 9 freakin cavities!! 9!! Luckily they are all really small and between the teeth so I told Jay he was not allowed to floss by himself anymore :-) 2 of the cavities are between his 2 front teeth so the dentist recommened doing crowns on them since kids uses them the most and it would wear down the fillings fast. With his age and all they had to do he said he wanted to put him under for it all which I was more then okay with because I know it would be easier on him and I dont want him to get a fear of the dentist from it. He will have all the work done on August 18th. Maddie on the other hand has a PERFECT mouth. No cavities or anything at all like that. It is so funny because my kids eat and drink pretty much the same things all the time. Not only that they both bruh and flos at the same times so how Jay ended up with 9 and Maddie has none is beyond me!
