Doctor Check-ups and 3 year old Photos!

We recently had all three of our monkeys' doctors appointments and they are doing great!

This was my first time going to the doctor's office by myself with the twins and it was an adventure! Emmy was scared of the nurse and greatly offended by the doctor. I don't think she appreciated him examining her. Ben on the other hand was happy to be there and he did really well until he got his shots. We were only there for a little over 2 hours with 2 one year olds...It was exhausting for everyone!
Their Stats:

Emmy- 19 lbs 1 oz, 27 1/2 inches long

Ben-22 lbs 4 oz, 29 inches long

They have gotten so big. The doctor is really please with how they are doing in everything. Their new trick is that they pull to stand anytime they get. They will probably be walking before I know it; where did my babies go?!

Hyrum's doctor's appointment was fantastic! Once again, the doctor is really pleased with how things are going for him. The doctor's comment was that Hyrum is a really big 3 year old, and he is.

His Stats:

Hyrum- 38 lb 6oz, 3 feet and 5 inches tall

Hyrum at first was really bugged when he had to take off his shirt (he has always had a thing about having his clothes on) and was a little timid when the doctor was examining his eyes. However, Hyrum soon thought the doctor was pretty cool and wanted the doctor to come back after he left. When the nurse came in to give the shot, he was ready to take off his shirt to be examined. Little did he realize that it was shot time. We left his shirt on and he got one shot in his arm. I was so impressed, all he said was ow! No tears, nothing! I think it was because he was pretty excited to get a cool band aid on his owie.

Below are Hyrum's 3rd birthday pictures. Pictures with Hyrum was another adventure. We waited forever to get his picture taken. Then when it was his turn, he did not want to have his picture taken at all. He wouldn't smile, but he would cry. So, we left and got all the way back to the car when he decided he was ready to have his picture taken when he realized that I would not let him have the treats I promised/ bribed him if he would get his picture taken.

We wemt back to the picture place and waited another hour or so to get Hyrum's picture taken. Luckily for us, we had a great photographer who was wiling to take the time with Hyrum to get somewhat of a decent shot and had a lot of patience with him. I was very impressed with her.

So cute! The twins have totally caught up (and passed) Kate. I should tell her she needs to get on the ball! She doesn't even have the preemie excuse.

They're all growing up so well! Love the pictures. Hyrum is so handsome! The Halloween pics are just adorable. (I know I already told you that on your trunk-or-treat pics...)

Cute kids! Wow I can't believe you waited so long for Hyrum's pics. then left and went back to wait some more. I would have definitely given up. Good for you! (= My mom tried to take Christmas card pics. this week, but Tyson would have none of it! I gave up; we'll try later.
