Four year checkup

This morning AJ went to the pediatrician for his 4-year-old check up. It turned out to be quite a traumatic experience for the little booger. He went through:
  1. 6 vaccinations
  2. 1 finger prick to test for anemia (NEGATIVE)
  3. hearing test (A LITTLE OFF DUE TO CONGESTION AND FLUID IN HIS EARS FROM A COLD)
  4. vision test (PERFECT 20/20)
  5. peeing in a cup for further testing

He has finally reached the 30 pound mark on his weight! YIPPEE! He was 30.2 lbs and 3 ft 3 in tall...we're finally making some progress on that growth chart.

His poor little legs are going to be pretty sore from all the shots, so we'll have to come up with a very special treat for him this evening.

Oh I hate inoculation time. The tears break my heart. I'm making Aaron's doctor space all the shots out he needs before kindergarten. Aaron does not handle them well and we both end up leaving the doctors office crying.

That's why I came to work and let his Daddy take him to the doctor. I can't stand the crying. By the time he saw me in the afternoon, he was all better and proudly showing off all his band-aids.

Poor baby. They don't understand what they're for and it makes you feel so mean. I take the grandkids to their check ups and we usually end up somewhere 'fun' afterwards. The guilt over those shots have cost me a fortune.
