Our *little* man, aka Tank, Chunky Monkey, Sport, Dough-Boy, Chubba-Chubba. I’m sure there’s more, but my mind fails me right now. It’s late and I’ve already used up all my allotted brain cells for the day. I’m officially done! LOL Well, I hauled little dude to the doctor today for his four month appointment. We were a little late on the schedule, but it’s understandable. The doctor’s office has been swamped with sick kids. Thankfully this time, we sat on the “Well Side.” We’ve been on the “Sick Side” way too often lately – for Kasen, but not for Holden, not yet. I know our time is coming, but I’m hoping to hold off as long as possible. So far, he’s a healthy little tank! The doctor gave a glowing report on how healthy Holden actually is – he’s still in the 75th percentile for height (tall guy), and now he’s in the 90th percentile for weight. Which means, he’s kept the same percentile for height, but dropped 5 percent for weight. When I replied, “Hey little dude, you’re down 5% for weight,” the doctor laughingly replied, “Well, I think he still has quite a bit of padding there.” LOL Yep, I’d say so.
Holden was so happy when we got to the doctor’s office. He was laughing, squealing, having a grand ol’ time. Then the dreaded shots came and he stuck out that bottom lip and looked at me like I had just betrayed all of his trust. Three band-aids later and we were done with the torture. Even when I went to check out, he just couldn’t get over the fact that I had let him down, let that mean ol’ nurse hurt him and let Mr. A take blood from his thumb. All the ladies in the office couldn’t get over that bottom lip either while professing how cute Holden was, how sad he looked, and how heart wrenching that cry was. Holden, you definitely have a gift – you gain so much sympathy wherever you go. Those rosy red cheeks, that sweet bottom lip all puckered out, those big blue eyes and that sweet round Charlie Brown head – you have ‘em right where you want ‘em. I think it’s time to go snuggle my little guy and give him some more smooches. He definitely earned them today.
See ya’ later!!
