Ally's Kindergarten Physical

This morning I took Ally for her Kindergarten physical. I had talked to her beforehand to prepare her for what was going to happen. And I am so glad I did! She did great and was sooo brave!!

The first thing they did was weigh her--52 lbs! (95th percentile)
Then they measured her--44.5 inches tall! (95th percentile)
Then the lab nurse came in and pricked Ally's finger (she didn't cry at all) and had Ally pee in a cup. Next Dr. Owen came in and said that her weight and height were proportionate and that she was very tall for her age (always has been)! He checked her from head to toe and said that she looked great!!

Then the nurse ran hearing and vision tests on Ally--Ally passed both with flying colors!! And then--the SHOTS!! Ally knew they were coming but when the nurse pulled them out she started to cry. She remained calm and she hugged me and her Bitty Baby while the nurse gave her FOUR shots! We sang Jesus Loves Me out loud and the nurse was finshed before we were done with the song. She composed herself and was ready to go--but not before she gave Dr. Owen his special picture!! Then we headed over to the mall and I let her pick something special at the Disney Store. She chose Tinkerbell & Silvermist!

I was very proud of Ally today! It's hard to believe that my baby is starting Kindergarten in August (sniff, sniff)!
