4 year well visit

As you know, Kalena turned 4 in May. But because of the way I scheduled her well visit last year, she couldn't come in this year until July. Anyway, it was on Wednesday and here are her stats:

Height: 3 ft 6 inches
Weight: 38 lbs 9.6 oz

I would tell you the percentages, but I don't have them written down. Both still on the higher end, 80-90% or so. They also checked her eyes this visit which I'd been wondering about. Not her eyes in particular, just when they would do it. They used a chart with shapes and had her list the shapes instead of reading letters. (I'm curious how they'll check Daniel's eyes, since he obviously won't be listing shapes when he gets them checked in a couple months.)

I asked about her tonsils since they seem big to me, and we got a referral to an ENT. I lean toward wanting to get them out if they're big since I had to have mine out when I was 22 and it SUCKED. The pediatrician said her threshold is also fairly low because she had hers out at 16. Anyway, she did say that kids can grow out of oversized tonsils, usually by age 5 or 6, so the ENT might ask us to wait a year and see.

Anyway, that's about it. She's healthy happy as always!


  1. Sounds like a relatively uneventful (in a good way) trip!

  2. Yay for healthy! I don't think I could tell you what big tonsils look like, and I don't think I've ever deliberately looked at mine or Hannah's. Maybe I should?
