Tess had her seven year old well check at the pediatrician on August 2nd. She had JUST turned seven a couple days prior!
I really love the timing of her birthday and well check up visit because I’m able to get all the shot records needed for the schools as well as any sports physicals too before school starts back up 😉
She had both her vision and hearing check and both were great!
I keep waiting on a kid to need glasses. I was straight BLIND in 2nd grade but we’re still in the clear there!
The downside of a summer birthday means she didn’t get to miss school for the appointment and I also had ALL FOUR kids with me. Thankfully the seven year well-check up doesn’t require any shots 🙂
The only real question I had was regarding her going to the potty. I think it’s pretty common for little girls to not wipe enough or over wipe and really the best thing is to keep A&D ointment on hand for any irritation! They said she looked good and healthy and just to also make sure she sits and fully empties her bladder when she goes.
She had her 6 year well visit in September last year so her visit this year was really only looking at 11 months comparison!
At 7 years old Tess is: 47.5 inches tall (50th percentile) and 45 lbs (24th percentile). She grew THREE inches in just 11 months!!!
Compared to her 6 year well visit she was: 44.5 inches tall (35th percentile) and 41.4 lbs (23rd percentile)
Compared to Britt’s 7 year well visit: Britt was 49.25 inches tall (75th percentile) and weighed 50 lbs (50th percentile)
Kye’s 7 year well check: He was 48 inches tall (50th percentile), 50lbs 8 oz (50th percentile).
Tessie is def my littlest of the three! I’m still pretty sure she will surpass me in height though…the height predictor puts her at 5’4″ by age 18 while Mama will still be sitting at 5’2″
I’m always so thankful for healthy babies! They all do so great at drs visits and it was a blessing that this was a short and quick one too 🙂
