Yesterday after church we went for a hike with a bunch of people from Stacy’s work. The sun was shining so Greyson broke out his shades. He was pretty grumpy at first (he had to be woken up so we could go) but soon was enjoying himself as he rode in style on the hike. It was a lot of fun. After that we went to church to listen to the Salvation Army band that was playing at our church. Greyson really seemed to enjoy the music.
Today was Greyson’s one year checkup with his pediatrician. All went well till it was time for the immunizations. Greyson doesn’t get shots or blood draws very often anymore so he is not as tolerant of the experience. It’s hard to see but he actually had tears rolling down his face from crying. I will say though he wasn’t the loudest kid in the Dr’s this morning and once I started asking him about the shots he soon was giggling and forgot how upset he had been. Another funny thing happened while we were there ***warning urine story to follow:
We had to collect a urine sample today so we had a collection bag on Greyson at the Dr’s. Well while the Dr. was in we checked and there was some. Stacy told Greyson we might need a little more and then we decided there was enough so she started taking off the bag. Most of you probably know what happened next. Greyson heard her say we needed more so more he gave us! Stacy was trying to catch it but he ended up going all over the table. Once the Dr. helped us clean up we apologized to which the Dr. said, “Don’t worry, it’s definately not the first time!” It’s always great to us to have normal child experiences, even the embarrasing ones!!
