Big Man on Campus

Wednesday Binh had to go to the doctor (again!) to get some vaccines (again!) in order to get all caught up. He only needs a couple more in six months and he’s good till he’s 4, I think. I feel so sorry for him; he’s like a little pin cushion. He had to get four shots the other day. They put them in his legs, and I feel so terrible watching that needle plunge into his little leg. They have no fat, so it looks like they’re going to hit his bone or something! He takes it like a big guy, though. He cries, but as soon as he sees the lollipop coming out, he’s dried up in no time.

While we were there, they took his height and weight. He had gained a pound and is up to 20.8 lbs. now. This is where the big news comes in. He made it onto the growth chart for height!! At 31in. he’s holding his own in the- 5th percentile! Woo-hoo. Go big Binh!

 Yeah, he’s been strutting around here all day talking about, “Don’t mess with Mr. 5%”. Ok, so he can’t talk yet, but I think he’s thinking it. He said something about wanting to thank all the little people that helped make this possible. When asked about upcoming projects Binh said in the near future he’d be working on getting his canine teeth, saying some words, and a long-term goal of his is getting on the chart for weight.

Here’s the Men in my house:

    Whoo hoo for making the chart! My R~ is a 3 percenter herself and I remember hitting 20 pounds was a huge deal to us because then we could finally turn the carseat around. (do they still do that at 20lbs?)
    What a great picture of your two boys!
