micah update

micah went to dr garcia's yesterday to get updated on his immunizations. the minute we walked into the office, he became quiet. it's been about 6 months since he's been there, but i'm sure he remembers that he never leaves happy. he cooperated with the weighing, measuring, and even the exam, just remained quiet. and then it was time for the shots. he watched the nurse get the shots ready. i tried to distract him right before the first shot went in. i expected screaming, but he just tensed up. he was pretty brave until the 3rd and final shot went in. he whimpered, and with tears falling down his cheeks, he said to me, "door, open." he just wanted to get out of there. and once we were out, he was okay.

so micah now weighs 26 pounds and stands 33 inches tall. dr garcia says he's just right. he talks SO much yet didn't say a word to anyone in the doctor's office. micah speaks in sentences. he'll say things like,"c'mon, let's go...upstairs," or "it's Nicah's milk." (he prounounces his name with an N.) he can count to 10 and is fascinated with cars. my little boy will be 2 in just 2 months!
