So the doctor comes in and introduces himself to Jaxon. What does Jaxon say to him? Not hi, not nice to meet you...but "Are you the doctor? I don't want shots." Ok. Dr. Goldberg took it in stride (he must deal with bossy 3 year olds all the time) and went with it. I loved how he talked to Jaxon and interacted with him. He took his time, chatted with me, chatted about the Bunchkins (he agrees that Hunter will make a good wife to Jaxon.) It was a great visit. And best of all... NO SHOTS!! Yahoo! After Jaxon was checked out by the doctor, he hops off the table and says to me, "I did good huh Mama?"
Here are his 3 year old stats: weight 32 lbs (75th percentile) and height 37 1/2 inches (75th percentile). He's gained 5 lbs since last year and grown 3 1/2 inches (wish I could grow that much!)
We bought a Ring Pop to help support the American Cancer Society and were on our way. Jaxon was pleased as punch. And on the way home he says, "Mama, Dat was fun! I want to go again."
When we got home he couldn't wait to tell Daddy about the dinosaurs in the fish tank. Brian asked him if he liked Dr. Goldberg and Jaxon replied, "Yes. He is nice and he didn't give me shots."
It's the little things.
Tomorrow will begin the posts on Jaxon's birthday. I may stretch it to 2 -3 days.
