Yes, I know... I am a bad blogger. I have good intentions though, does that count?
I had D's evaluation w/ the Child Find (speech). He qualifies for their services starting Monday, November 5th ( the day after his 3rd birthday). That is based on his speech/language needs. He will attend a developmental preschool 3hours a day x 4 days a week plus have 1 on 1 speech therapy 1 day a week for 30 minutes.
I took him to a new pediatrician on Halloween for his 3 yr well visit. I was soooooooo sick of the wait at the old ped. ( if you are in Knoxville and want to know who to stay away from..let me know). When I took him to Dr. S.. two weeks ago for a sick visit (strep), it was horrible. We were in the front waiting room for an hour! (WITH AN APPT)..once we got to an exam room and the nurse did his temp and listened to his chest..we waited another hour or so for Dr. S to visit. She came in and spent 10 minutes ( which included 3 people having to hold D down for a strep test). Then we waited another 30 minutes for the results. UGH!!! It wasn't like this was a one time thing..each and every visit..the wait is horrendous!! I remember our very first appt when he was 5 days old..and we were there for almost 4 hours. Anyway.. the new ped. (Dr. A) is about 35 minutes away. His office is very nice and clean a lot of other perks too. The staff are great! We were in and out in an hour!! D weighed 36.5 lbs and was 38 inches tall. My little monster is growing! He got his flu shot and they did a blood stick for a lead test. I took him back to daycare and went back to work. He had a Halloween party that day. I got home around 5ish..and we had dinner and practiced saying "Trick or Treat" Once it came time to put on his costume ( the old navy lion) ..my loving sweet MONSTER was possessed. He proceeded to throw a THREE hour temper tantrum!! I mean non stop screaming, kicking, hitting, limp bodied almost 3 year old laying in the floor. I couldn't get him to tell me anything..not if something hurt. Evenutally he told me he was dirty.. but he wasn't. I cleaned him up after dinner..he pottied and had a clean diaper.. non sticky face and hands..so I don't know. So I have no cute pictures or anything..we stayed home. :-(
His birthday is Sunday. I can't believe it! He is having a fire truck themed party. I'm keeping it small.. not inviting the SD family (sperm donor haha). They don't make a point to call or see him through the year..so it is their loss. A friend of Mom's is making him a fire truck cake. Dalton and I are going to make cupcakes too. He is really excited! Every day for the last month he will ask if it is "dot dot's birthday party" yet.. He will then list what his party should consist of.. "birthday cake.."oons" (balloons), presents, and a party. He also tells me multiple times a day that on his birthday (the actual day) he wants to "bowl the ball". So that is what we will do on Sunday.. I found this really cool cake that I would like to make for Sunday.. (I'm new at adding pictures..so I think its at the beginning of the post..Its from the Family Fun website)
Oh yeah... I recommend reading Mom O Matic's blog, if you haven't already. She's great..super funny. Future Milf's unite! :0)
