We took Walt for his four-year well check today. I was not looking forward to this. I had a ton of anxiety over the shots. I’m not even sure Walt remembers shots! But more on this in a sec.
This well check was actually very interesting. In addition to standard height and weight, they tested Walt’s vision, hearing and blood pressure. When Dr. G did his exam, he checked his reflexes (which Walt thought was hilarious) and made him do some tricks (stand on one leg, stand on the other leg…)
Here are Walt’s stats:
Weight: 41.8lbs …. 85%
Vision: 20/30 in both eyes
Things that stood out to me:
- This is the first time in I can’t remember that Walt isn’t in the 90th percentile. It’s probably because he stopped eating chicken 🙂
- I’m unrealistically worried about his vision. I got glasses at 6 years old and my mom and sisters were all about same. We all have horrendous vision. I think mine is the “best” at -8.00 in both eyes.
- They also start tracking body mass index (BMI) and it’s the first visit they have talked about nutrition in the sense of low fat, low sodium, etc. We need to work on more veggies!
