that's how much they weigh, 39.5 pounds each, at their annual physical yesterday. we are still waiting for malia to break 40. we are so close! micah caught up to her so quickly.

m&m are always good at the doctor's office. they loved getting weighed, having their blood pressure taken, doing the hearing test, and doing the vision test.

and before they even saw the doctor, micah had to get his iron checked. (memories of his 1st year appointment with the iron check went through my mind. his screams filled the entire office.) so i asked him if he wanted to sit on my lap and reminded him to be as brave as he could. meanwhile, the girl was freaking out, almost in tears, and she wasn't even going to get poked! she even asked to leave the room. but micah barely flinched when the nurse pricked his finger. so proud of him.

then it was time to see dr garcia. malia talked his ears off. when he was checking micah, and asking him questions, malia would answer and micah would just nod his head in agreement. he told micah that he's a good size right now but to watch what and how much he eats because he has the body type that could get big. and he doesn't want micah to have any problems in the future. and he told malia to eat as much as she wanted, but good foods of course with occasional treats. too funny.

the nurse came back with shots in hand. malia quickly got off the exam table and ran behind me to hide. micah said,"don't be scared ate'." when i told malia that only micah was getting shots, she did a big sigh of relief but still hid behind me. micah got a TB test and 3 other shots. and it was only after the 3rd shot that he said,"that one hurt." but he never cried. my tough guy.

we went to target after and malia asked, "so do we get to buy something because we were so good at the doctor's?" she cracks me up.
