Christopher had his 3 year check up on Thursday. I am not so melodramatic to say that it was just yesterday that he had his 3 week checkup but it sure doesn’t seem like 3 years! At 3 years he weights 36lbs and is 40 1/4 inches tall. That’s 75th percentile for weight and 95th percentile for height. He knows his colours, shapes, and letters by sight and can also count up to 20 – sometimes. He likes the number 13 and usually stops there because … he’s bored? likes 13? Dunno. He is, however, not potty trained. This is the only thing keeping him from preschool in September. Oh, well there’s the money thing too but that’s another story. I wonder if preschool does nap time? He also take at least a 2 hour nap every day. Yesterday he took a 3 hour nap. He is a nap taking boy! Speaking of taking, the Mimi Fairy took his binky on Monday. I do not know where he got the name, but for some reason he calls his binky a ‘mimi’. The Mimi Fairy left him a nice card and a pair of Thomas the Tank Engine pajamas. What a cool fairy! Bed and nap times are now more horrific because of this. He is even more whiny and even cries after he is in bed. He does not realise that he wants his binky, he just knows that he is unhappy. His binky provided some level of comfort and he still needs that, in my opinion. So I read to him and rub his back and leave my boy to wimper in bed. It really breaks my heart, especially when a stupid piece of silicone would make him more comfortable and happy.
