Ellie's 18 month doctor visit

This morning was Ellie's well-child check-up.  Our doctor was running a little behind, so we had the chance to make lots of friends in the waiting room.  At one point a mom came in with 5 little kids (we are guessing 2 sets of twins).  Ellie was in heaven with all of those friends to choose from.  She even picked up all of the little books from the table and took them over to share.  Unfortunately, her new friends were more interested in running in to watch the movie.  A quick change of plans, books were dropped on the floor, and Ellie ran right in after them.
Hi, Mom!
 When we got in our room, Lynlee kept on snoozing and Ellie got all measured up.  Here are the vitals:
Length:  32.5 in ~ 75th percentile
Weight:  23 pounds 5 ounces ~ 25th percentile
Head Circumference:  48 centimeters ~ 75th percentile
 Then it was back in the room to wait for the doctor.  And yes, Ellie is turning into one of those children.  The one who gets into everything, everywhere, anytime.  And once we had discouraged her from playing with the medical instruments and the blinds, she was ready to get down from the table.
 Ellie was really good with the doctor.  She was super serious, but let the doctor do everything necessary without crying.
 The absolutely worst part of every doctor visit...

I would bring crayons and let Tyler draw on the paper they roll out. Kept him busy while we waited.
