No Cavities!

Being the wonderful mother that I am I took my kids to the dentist on Monday. Here comes the wonderful part, this was their first visit; better late than never, right? Well, I guess I haven't done all wrong. Things went well. NO CAVITIES! They saw the kids simultaneously so Izzy watched Corb and it made a great difference. She was trying so hard to hold still even when she didn't like it. Her little body would wiggle and she would make tiny noises letting you know she wanted to put her hands up to assist the dentist in getting the heck away from her mouth. They did great. The only part that didn't go well was with dental pick, you know that little curved pokey thingy, Corban would not let the dentist come near him with it. Next time, maybe. 

We also recently had well checks for both kiddos. They both needed a few immunizations to catch up and Corban is still mad at the nurse (and me) for making him get shots when he didn't want to get them. Izzy was furious as well, but once she heard the word sucker she wiggled down from my hip and stopped crying so she could go pick her sucker from the drawer. She is 95 percentile in weight. Our little Helga... only 5% of kids her age weigh more than her. At least she is over 3 feet tall so it isn't so bad. She is just our husky girl.

This last picture is Corban being very enthusiastic about his homework. He actually was enjoying himself, the angle of the picture makes his eyes look droopy. He loves school and we just got him registered for Kindergarten! He is very excited to go to Holly's school (our neighbor friend).

Well, if you have to go to the doctor/dentist soon I hope your visit goes well.

We just took Marshy to the dentist in November, and he had caps put on in January. He didn't mind too much, probably because it was sedation so he was out the whole time! haha

How old is Izzy now? Marshy weighs 40 lbs, (at 3 y.o.), so I'm guessing that he weighs more than she does! :)

Jo, sorry to disappoint, Izzy is a bit over 41 lbs! Just turned three and almost weighs as much as Corban.
