Tuesday Tidbits and Well Check


A certain little Bean had her 4 year well check today! String Bean is more like it. She's tall and skinny, just like her big brother! I don't worry about it anymore. It's obviously genetic!

She was such a big girl at her appointment! She has been leery about checkups since her diarrhea issue 2 years ago. I don't really blame her! She was poked and prodded so much. Even I'd be afraid of doctors after all that! She did great today, and cooperated perfectly through the weighing, measuring, eye exam, hearing exam, and physical. I can honestly say I was shocked and proud. She's usually such a drama queen!

Her sweet doctor (who reminds me of Mr. Rogers) gave her a clean bill of health and told her that she didn't need any shots, and she happily left the office with her paper gown and a sticker of her choice.

A few minutes later, she held my hand tight as I had my blood drawn. I love my support system!


A few cute and funnies for the week:

{1} On the way home from the park yesterday, we had the car windows open. As we passed a farm, it suddenly got very stinky. Lexie waved her hand in front of her face and said, "Yuck!!! Now that is cow poop!!!"

{2} On that same drive, the wind began whipping her hair around, and she became very annoyed. She began yelling, "Sit, wind, SIT!!!"

{3} Dylan really wants another sister. Tonight I asked him why. He told me, "Because sisters are great and awesome and I love Lexie so much!"


  1. That childs paper gown is so cute! Glad her appt. went well. Hope your having a great week!

  2. Dylans comment about another sister just melted my heart! I'm glad Lexie had a easy check up, I dread drama in the doctors office it makes me break out in a sweat!

  3. Awhhh ya Lexie!! Dylan is so sweet! I secretly hope it's a girl too! :) XOXO
