A Doctor's Visit

 
Well I had my first experience of taking two children to the doctor by myself today. I prayed over this trip greatly and the Lord is faithful. Zach was pretty good and it did not pour down rain while we were trying to get in and out of the car in the double stroller.
(in the picture you see Zach playing in the stroller waiting for Dr. Mayberry) He played with the various toys I brought and I made a fool of myself singing, reading, and tickleing to entertain while we waited. I feared a great temper tantrum on Zach's part and the only rough spot was when he got mad bc I wouldn't let him see something from the diaper bag. He flug himself down through the front of the stroller (he was not straped in mistake #1) and was clothes lineing himself. I was holding laney and had to throw her down on a chair to save him from choking. I couldn't get him pushed back up into the stroller bc stupid me didn't lock the brakes (mistake #2) and it kept moving. He was panicing and so was I, mostly bc I was afraid Lane would somehow fall of the chair. Both kids were screaming and a the nurse poked her head in and asked if we were ok. I said, NO! She held the stroller while I got Zach up and sat back down. So lovely a picture I'm sure! Anyway, after that crisis all was well, except for shots of course! ha! Here are our stats: Zach is 18mo and weight 29lbs and is 35 in tall. Both are in the 95 percentile. Laney is 2 months and now weighs 11 lbs 3 oz and is 22.5 in. YEAH! She is up to the 50% in weight and height. I'm so glad! So, there you have it the synopsis of our first double doctor 1.5hr long visit!
