Logan's Doctor Visit

20 lbs 11 oz (93% regular chart)
25.5 inches long (20% regular chart-he is now on the chart!!!)
We got a referral to a pediatric opthamologist and are wait for the results of the thyroid test. Drawing the blood for the thyroid test was awful! They couldn't take it from his arm because he is too chubby, so they had to take it drop by drop out of his finger. It was the longest I have ever seen him cry! Our pediatrician said he usually checks the thyroid once a year, but I was told by the DS clinic in Milwaukee to do it every 6. After our experience I don't want to do it every 6 months if I can help it, it was terrible.
