2-Year Well-Baby Checkup

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Last time we went to the doctor, Iris was 18 months old. I had recently done my celebratory final diaper load. We still all slept in the same room. And I rode my bicycle to the doctor’s office, amongst other places. What a lot has changed in the past six months!



Dr. Jessica Stadtmauer gave Iris a rudimentary lesson on using the audioscope.




Iris wasΒ quite focused while examining her patient.




Later, IrisΒ stood for measurement.




SheΒ is about 34 inches tall.

I was brave enough to ask to take a photo. Why is it so hard? Ideally, I would have been brave enough to ask the doctor to pose as I wanted. As it is, the audioscope is distracting. I should have asked Dr. Stadtmauer to hold it in her left hand, vertically, and use it in a way that shows her profile. I knew that at the time, but I was too afraid to ask. Maybe next time. But how much of a doctor’s time am I allowed to take up asking her to pose? (Yeesh, it costs enough money to go there…) In addition, due to the orange cast of the walls, it is virtually impossible to remove the orange glow from the people in the image. Poo.
