Birthday recap

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to wish the little one a Happy Birthday. He had a great time playing with his daddy all day long, and then having a little bit of a celebration at his Tata's (grandfather) house.
We took him to the doctor this morning for his wellcheck visit. He is in the 90th percentile for height, measuring 37-1/4 inches, and in the 90% for weight at 33 pounds. Quite a jump from not even making the chart at 2 weeks old. I guess it's true what they say about preemies catching up...has he ever!
He was very cooperative with the check up, in part because he was given play medical kit for Christmas and he's been practicing on us. He was very enthused when the doctor was to check his tummy, hear his heart and check his eyes, ears and throat.
He had two shots, and was a real trooper. He simply watched what the nurse was doing, after the first said, "that hurts", and cried a bit after the second and said, "no more shots". But the crying lasted less than a minute. We told him he was a big boy, and that he was very brave, and he smiled.
Here are a couple of pictures of him blowing out the candles on his cake this evening, with a little bit of help from his cousin Mikey. Thanks again for all the birthday wishes!

Looks like fun! Yay for the brave boy! At his age I threw physical fits, biting kicking and screaming to avaoid shots. Pretty pathetic. But Brandon is much braver than I was!
