We took Mayhem for his 18 month well baby checkup this morning, complete with TDAP and flu vaccines made better by a sucker.
Our little turkey weighs 28 pounds, 10 ounces and is 33 inches long now.
The doctor thinks we're doing a fine job with him and after our answer of, "Everything!" to his question, "What's fun about Mayhem?" he said he guessed we didn't want to return him.
There is still fluid on his ears three months after an ear infection so we have to go back in a month for a recheck. He may have to have his hearing tested if it's not better and he's not saying two-word phrases by then.
He also said after Mayhem is consistently sleeping all night every night we could convert his bed to a toddler bed, but I don't know if I'm down with that. What if he gets loose?!
After Mayhem's appointment we dropped Boots off at the chiropractor and the two of us drove over to the new pet store to kill some time while we waited. We saw a cat and two kittens and about a million fish. Mayhem liked the birds (of course!), but the gerbils running on the wheel and fat rabbits really captured his attention. I wanted to get him one of each of everything in there despite knowing I'd be the one doing all the caretaking, except for the ferrets- those critters can't be trusted.
A little shoe shopping at Target for a boy with feet that literally grow overnight and then home for a nap.
