6-Year Well Child Check

We had Sydneys 6-year well child check last week, and when I picked Sydney up from school and told her we were going to the doctor Sydney's first question was, "Mommy am I going to get any shots, because I don't want 3shots." I didn't answer her because you never know what they are going to get when you go but I knew she was not getting three shots, so I told Sydney she could ask Dr. Dubal when we got to the doctor. I am so very thankful for a healthy child because thankfully we only go to the doctor about once a year and maybe once or twice in between, and I thank God each and every day for my healthy baby girl!

So the results are in:
Height: 49.75 inches (65% on growth chart)
Weight: 69lb (100% on growth chart)

Heart rate: 104
BP: 86/46

Dr. Dubal's suggestions: No more juice, milk three times a day, only fresh fruits and vegetables for snack, when not drinking milk only drink water, no sweet tea (which happens to be Syds favorite), small meals with two small snacks and continue being active and return in 2weeks for a thyroid panel to be drawn. I knew the weight issue was going to arise but Dr. Dubal said to try these suggestions and she doesn't want Sydney to be concerned about her weight but to try changing some of her habits and so we are working on these for our entire house!
Not so happy about Mommy taking pictures in the Dr office...Sorry Honey!!!
