Vance's check up
I finally got Vance into the doctor for his 4 year wellness check, only a month after he turned four. I told him last night that he'd be going to the doctor this morning and he was so excited. I'm not sure why. That excitement lasted until the nurse took his blood pressure. Then he got really nervous and quiet which is how he remained the rest of the time. He was good though. In fact he was quite the trooper. He had four shots and got a flu vaccination. Thank goodness that one was the spray so he didn't have to get poked five times. He cried a little when he got his shots, but he didn't fight it too bad. Now he has all the immunizations he'll need before going to kindergarten. For anyone interested he is 41 pounds and 41 1/4 inches tall. That puts him just above the 75 % for his weight and just under the 75% for his height. Vance is at a really fun age right now. We enjoying all the fun, laughter he brings to our house and comments he comes up with. He is learning to be polite by saying please, thank you, and I'm sorry often. Although he still has the honesty of a typical 4 year old as my dad found out when Vance told him that he had a big belly. We also are learning to be nicer in the things we say around here. For example, on Sunday I was telling Stephen that my primary class would not shut up and Vance instantly reprimanded me for saying "shut up". I love my that kid!
