Christian's Five Year Exam

Today we took our little FIVE YEAR OLD for his annual doctor exam.  We're seeing a new doctor, Dr. Pyle, and he is VERY nice, very attentive and very interested in our children. 

Last year's appointment with our now-former pediatirican was an absolute disaster.  I don't know if it is Dr. Pyle's warm personality or Christian's maturity a year later, but Christian was a STAR for this exam!  He had no problem stepping on the scale, or getting his blood pressure taken, or his pulse, etc.   All of these things last year were very difficult for him and last year's doctor wasn't any help.

Jonathan had Christian tell the guys at the front desk that his Millenium Falcon's hyperdrive was broken and that Han Solo was missing a finger.  So Dr. Pyle was aware of this situation when he arrived, and played along nicely. 

Christian weighed 40.6 lbs (with clothing on).  As we knew, he's small for his age ... just in the 14th percentile for hight.   Dr. Pyle even commented on how big Christian's head is.  Yep, that's how we grow our children:  small bodies, big heads :)
