Two year checkup

I took Bean in today for her 2 year check up.  We've had better visits.

She is 33 inches tall but still only weighs 21 pounds.  I promise we've been feeding her.

But she also has really low iron in her blood.  They are still saying "borderline" anemic but I have to take her back in two months to be rechecked and we have to switch vitamins.  I guess I have some reading up on anemia to do.

The worst for Bean was the finger stick for the hemoglobin test.  At first, the nurse couldn't get much blood to flow.  But then the floodgate opened and it wouldn't stop bleeding.  She bled for almost 10 minutes and cried the whole time.  That wasn't the worst for me but I'll write about that later.
