1. Flu Shot
Last week, you got your flu shot. We had set the appointment earlier in the week, but opted not to tell you till the last minute, so as not to drag out your dread. On the last day of November, you asked if it was the last day of November, and when I said "yes", your eyes opened wide and said, "It's DECEMBER tomorrow! That means flu shot!".
Anyway, this year, you were exceptionally brave. You knew about the shot literally about 30 minutes before it happened, and even though you were nervous, you remained calm. When it came time for the shot, you sat on my lap and closed your eyes while the nurse gave you your shot. At first you said, "ouch!", and then opened your eyes wide in surprise 2 seconds later and said, "Wow, that was over lickity split!".
2. Broccoli, Green Beans and Vegetables in General.
Recently, you have been really sweet about eating a wider variety of vegetables, even if we have to take it slowly. During dinner, several nights ago, you ate like 8 different bites of broccoli. I was so proud of you! Of course, when I TOLD you how proud of you I was, you just beamed and beamed :)
3. Water on your face thing.
You have always disliked very much having water on your face at bath/shower time, and afraid of it going into your eyes and like that. So, every time you shower/bathe/go to the splash park, I have to be constantly on standby with a towel. Thing is, you really want to learn how to swim in the future. So, the last few times, we have been trying to take a little time before wiping your face if it gets splashed a little, and you even opened your eyes wide when I dripped a couple of drops of water down your forehead - which is HUGE! And of course, the happy look of pride on your face when I grinned and told you how proud I was of you, was just priceless.
Way to Go, Little Boy! :)
