It ended up being a really nice day off of work with Liam.
We got to the Dr. office and he was so good to hold my hand all the way from the car and to the elevator. I let him push the buttons as a reward. He led us all the way into the office toddling so joyfully. He did the same when the nurse called us back. He was fine until we started taking his clothes off...
And then he remembered...
He lost his cool and fast!
He was wailing on the scale and when she measured his head (19 in) and height (33 in). He cuddled me and continued crying until she was out of the room for a good 2 minutes.
When Dr. Wynn finally came in, Liam didn't react. He was playing with my camera and Dr. Wynn was making small talk and I don't think Liam remembered him at all!
The wailing started when I asked Dr. Wynn to take Liam so I could get the traditional well-visit photo. Despite the sad, crying face I still think Liam looks so cute:
After Dixie and I got Liam dressed and broke out the Ritz cheddar sandwich crackers, Liam was content again. He was so cute carrying the baggy of Ritz crackers leading us back to the elevator. He pushed the button with his cheesy finger and waited patiently as the doors ding'd open. He continued on his sweet way holding my hand and carrying his crackers all the way to the car. I just don't want to forget how darling he was toddling along with me.
We headed to Tuesday Morning because I told Dixie we'd go check it out. I love that place. I love it even more when Liam doesn't throw everything out of the cart or attempt nose dives to get out of the cart. Nevertheless, I found a Parents brand wooden bead and alphabet puzzle set. It was on sale for $19.99 down from it's original price of $49.99 which I thought was laughable. I mean, who would buy one wooden puzzle and a set of wooden beads for that much?
Anyway, that purchase was one of the smartest in my new career as a mother. I've been wanting to get Liam THIS type of set for a while. That and a train set, but we don't really have space for a train set anyway, so beads it is. And he seriously played with these for 90 minutes straight today! We gave up on the shoe strings and moved to drinking straws and a glow stick necklace for lacing. He was in brainy boy heaven!!!
Oh I forgot to say that Liam took a 3 hour nap and I took a 2 hour one!!! The rest of the evening after playing beads FOREVER, included Taco Time, Bath Time, Reading Time and Jump-on-the-bed Time... it was an awesome day with Liam and Dixie!
