Corgan's 2 Year Checkup

About a month ago, I all of the sudden had this thought of "Did Corgan already have his 2 year checkup?" I honestly could not remember if I'd scheduled or even taken him to one yet! I had to call the doctor's office to find out that I hadn't. So, I scheduled the appointment, and today, nearly 2 months after his 2nd birthday, he finally had his 2 year checkup. :)

Everything went smoothly. He's up to 36.75" and nearly 32 pounds. All milestones seem on track. Corgan was a good boy (despite the relatively long wait from the time that they took us into the exam room until the doctor came in for the exam), and our doctor continues to impress me with his ability to relate to the kids... even a generally hostile-towards-strangers kid like my Corgan.

The doctor told me that he's still on the fence about the H1N1 flu shot, but that if he decides to recommend it to his patients in a couple of months (after he's seen more results from it), then he'd highly recommend it for my kids because they've got the nebulizer. But he said that right now he wouldn't even give it to his own kids. That's kinda refreshing to hear from the perspective of all doctors not jumping on the H1N1 vaccine bandwagon and knowing that he won't really recommend it until he really believes it.

P.S. Isn't my Corgan so adorable reading the Curious George book in the doctor's waiting room?

That is a GREAT face!

Glad to hear Dr. Hernandez doesn't just blindly follow what the medical community decides without thinking about it himself. A much better reaction than the one I got from Dr. Foster, when it was so obvious he wouldn't give me his own opinion.
