Three year doctor appointment

Today we had Sydney's three year doctor appointment and it went very well. First off, Sydney's finally on the weight chart! She weighs 25 1/2 lbs, putting her at the 5th percentile. This was quite exciting, as she hasn't been on the charts since she was about 9 months old or so. She is 35 inches tall, and 10th percentile. So that means out of 100 kids, 95 weigh more than her and 90 are taller than her. I am seriously so excited she is on the charts though. She eats a lot more lately and just doesn't seem as tiny compared to other kids as she used to, so we figured she was on the charts.
The doctor also checked her motor skills and asked Sydney questions and she is right on track. Apparently they only need to know one color by age three...uh what? Yeah, so Sydney is definitely doing fine.
Sydney had to bring her Elmo doctor kit with us so after the nurse checked her heartbeat, took her blood pressure, etc., Sydney was practicing the same technique on me (checking heartbeat and blood pressure at same time.) It was pretty funny. Sydney told the doctor she wants to be a doctor when she grows up so I think the doctor might like her even a bit more now, haha.
It was a great appointment, and the next big doctor appointment will be the dentist...oh boy.
