The Doctor tickled my nose!!

Today I had the pleasure of taking both kids to the Dr (insert sarcasm here)
I had no idea how I was going to be able to control both kids and keep them under control while trying to hold any sort of a conversation with the Dr. But today turned out much better than I had imagined! Jacob obeyed the nurse and did everything she asked (phew!!) She took his height and weight and asked him a few questions. It finally hit me that he is officially a little boy and no longer a baby. He answered all of the questions no problem and I was instantly taken back to when we brought him into that same room at just 5 days old. Steve and I had our new little baby and couldn't wait to show him off to the nurses! And now, 3 years later he's holding conversations and telling stories to anyone that will listen. It really makes me cherish these last few "baby" months with Norah before she's "officially" a toddler. Both kids let the Dr check them out head to toe and they found the little light quite interesting! I held my breath as they laid on their back in fear that one of them would freak out, but to my surprise they relaxed and she was done within minutes! We were able to get Jacob the h1n1 vaccine and it was really cute because once administered, he said in excitment "Mommy, the Dr tickled my nose with the water!" (it was the nasal vaccine) They were all out of the doses for Norah but I dont think she minded because she had to get 4 shots anyway. She did awesome and once I showed her a little sucker I had brought she was all smiles :) I took them both to McDonalds for lunch where they played on the big toy and tired themselves out just in time for naps!

Here are some of the stats from Jacob and Norah
Height: 38.5" (75th percentile)
Weight: 37" (80th percentile)

Height: 31.5" (75th percentile)
Weight 26.5 lbs (90th percentile)
