I'm 3 Today!

Yep, I'm a big boy now. I'm so big that I can look back at the day I was born. Mommy and Daddy told me about it over breakfast this morning. It was all very confusing.

I get to do lots of special things for my birthday today: eat oatmeal for breakfast, go to the doctor, go to the Thomas store to play, and go to Quiznos for dinner and have my favorite food: a grilled cheese sandwich.

I've already been to the doctor today, and I was weighed on the grownup scale and measured standing up for the very first time. I am 39" tall and weigh 38 lbs. (A note to Caleb's mommy: Mommy was wrong about me only gaining a pound this year. I actually gained five.) I have slowed down in my growth a lot and am no longer a chart-topper. I'm only in the 90th percentile for height and weight. Strangers still comment on how tall I am for my age, anyway. Mommy and the doctor talked a long time about boring things like potty training. I had a finger-prick test so the doctor could look at my blood, which I took like a champ, and I also had a hearing test with headphones. That was the neat part of the appointment. Oh, and it was also great to read one of my new books with Mommy, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel.

I don't have to go to the doctor again until I turn 4. If you want to see my doctor appointments from when I turned 1 and when I turned 2, click on the blue letters. Mommy is thankful for an uneventful checkup, because last year the doctor complained a lot, and the complaints led to my CT scan and getting glasses.
