Stats & Interview

On Wednesday, Pax went to Dr. D to for his 3 year check up. He had to get one little vaccination. When the nurse left to get it prepared I explained that he was getting one shot and it would just feel like a little pinch. He didn't seem to interested in what I was saying, but Holden was very interested. He was asking me if Pax was going to cry and all sorts of other questions. Pax piped up and said he wasn't going to cry and he was going to be very brave. And that he was! He made a little wince when the needle went in. I knew it was uncomfortable to him. But not a single tear. And I made such a big hoopla about the fact that he didn't cry that he was smiling and cheering for himself right after the needle was removed. Don't all kids cry with shots!? Maybe not. But I was so so so so proud of Pax and how he handled that moment of pain. At 3 years, he weighed in at 34lbs (74%) and 38.5inches (76%).
On Wednesday after Pax's nap, Holden was still sleeping. So I took a moment to have a littel one-on-one interview with him. He's never in a very serious mode at times like these when I want him to be. But here is what we came up with.

M: Who do you like to sleep with?
P: E. Eat (not sure if I've mentioned this E. Eat character. But it's a Cabbage Patch Doll that I had as a little girl. My mom gave him to Pax at one point and he completely attached himself to that doll. And Pax named him E. Eat. This all happened well over a year ago.)

And because of Sunday's incident, we made up for those wasted hours today. Jeremy was off from work so we had a great family day. I live for family days! We took the boys bowling this morning. We gave Pax several options and without hesitation, that is what he wanted to do. He loved every minute of it!

I forgot about E. Eat. That makes me laugh out loud every time I hear it. :) Such a sweet boy!
