Today is the first day of snow and the boys are really excited. Eli''s been looking out our big window in the front room and just giggling and Ethan''s been begging me to go outside. I know it won''t last but it sure it pretty.
Eli said "dog" a few days ago. He said it plain as day too. I think he''s been trying with a few more words too.
Ethan had his first dentist appointment yesterday! He did so well!! I couldn''t believe it! I mean I knew he would do well but he was excellent! He sat on my lap in the exam chair and immediately opened his mouth for the assistant. She took out the little mirror tool and told him what it did. She asked him if he wanted to wear sunglasses because of the bright light but he said no. So then Dr. P came over and Ethan opened big and wide as soon as he saw him. He let him put the mirror is his mouth and everything! He bit down so Dr. P could see how his bite was too. He got to pick out 3 prizes for being such a great little boy. I even got commended because I brought him in so young. They said that it''s really important to bring them in at this age so they get a feel for the Dr and the office. He just loved the girls there too because of course they gave him his prizes. We were in and out in 10 minutes and most of the time taken up was him making up his mind on which 3 toys he wanted. :) So needless to say, Mom and Dad are very proud of their boy!
Eli had his first visit to the emergency room this afternoon. He''s actually the first out of both boys. He had been running a fever for a day or so and it got up to 105. We decided that it was time to take him in. They told us it was just a virus but gave us a script for antibiotics to start on saturday if he still had a fever.
