Check-ups for Three

Monday all three children had check-ups.  7 years for David that we postponed and 2 years for Dillan and Daniel.  My Dad went with me to help with crowd kid control.  All three of them were on it!  Wild!

They were weighed and measured. That was a lot of fun in the tiny room. 

David weighed 62 pounds and was 4 feet 2.5 inches tall.  He is in the 75th percentile for both.  If this continues he will be about 6 feet tall as an adult. 

Dillan weighed 32 pounds, was 34 inches tall, and had a head circumference of 19.5 inches.  He is in the 75th percentile for weight, 50th for height, and  80th percentile for head. 

Daniel weighed 28 pounds, was 34 inches tall, and had a head circumference of 19 3/4 inches. He is in the 50th percentile for height and weight and the 95th percentile for head circumference!  Bahahaha! Is it bad to laugh at your own child?  He is so cute with his big little head. 

Tuesday Walter and I took Dillan to his first appointment in Birmingham with the Orthopedic Specialist.  Dr. Carlile and us have been concerned about Dillan's legs turning out, his second toe going on top of his big toe, and walking on his tippy toes.  First of all, who knew St. Vincent's Hospital was so BIG?!  It was harder to get around than Children's Hospital!  We were supposed to park in Parking Lot 1 and go to Building 1.  Well we parked in Parking Deck 3, walked through building 3, the hospital, building 2, and finally made it to building 1.  Then we couldn't find the office and ended up in the Lobby near Pre-Op and got pointed in the right direction. 

Dr. Killian's office took x-rays of Dillan's legs and feet.  Shortly after, Dr. Killian came in and told us he wasn't worried about the legs turning out (he should grow out of it) or his toes (hereditary thanks to my Dad I hear).  Walking on his toes is a problem.  He pointed out Dillan is double jointed in most of his joints but his tendon in his heel is tight.  So tight is feet will barely go to a 90 degree angle.  We will do physical therapy to try to stretch it out.  Hopefully we caught it early enough to not have to do other things to fix them. 

All in all, great appointments for the Quinn boys!  Eating at The Cheesecake Factory wasn't so bad either!  AND it was So EASY going out to eat with only 1 child!  Who knew???
