See that little head in the background? She's coming!
She's gotten particularly fast at this when I leave my computer on the floor. Looks like we're not watching Hulu together anymore...
In other news, John Paul had his 2-year checkup today. He's still on the bigger side of the growth charts - 88th percentile for height, 78th for weight, 99th for head circumference (let's face it, this is never going to change. It's time to start investing in super-sized hats...). I was so proud of how both of the kids did - he was extremely cooperative (the nurse said one of the most cooperative 2-year-olds she's ever met) and didn't even cry when he got his shots! We had been practicing with a toy doctor's kit his godfather gave him, so he lay back very nicely and held his toy syringe in one hand and a bottle of star sprinkles (his bribe) in the other hand.
First shot. A little whine.
Second shot. "Mmmmmmm all done! ALL DONE!" Not a single tear, just let me know that he wasn't having anymore. He was due for 4 - we haven't had any since his 12-month checkup, but I thought 2 was enough in one day. Then he very happily sat there eating star sprinkles while he got bandaids. And Cecilia chilled in her car seat chewing on a book every time I had to put her down. It seems that it's a lot easier taking both kids to the doctor when they're not actually sick! Her checkup is in a couple of weeks, hopefully it will go just as smoothly!
