Happy July! I can't believe I turn the big 3-0 this month... Yikes.
We had Sean's birthday party on Sunday. It went very well, aside from the weather sucking a bit. The kids got to play outside in the water toys for a while before it hit, though, so that was good. He had a great time, although he was a bit shy at first and kept telling me he wanted to eat his food under his table, lol. That was early on when only some of our older relatives had shown up. He warmed up once there were some other kids there.
This weekend, we'll be going to a little girl's 4th birthday party... They were born only a week apart, she's affectionate and a little social butterfly, so my shy boy warms up a little faster around her.
Today was my visual evoked response test. We had to get up really early for it. It gave me a headache, omg... I had to stare at a circle in the middle of a tv screen that was filled with small black and white checkerboard print, and the blacks and whites alternated rapidly. I had to do it with one eye at a time. I'm not sure how long the doc will take to read the results and call me, but she was sending the data to him today.
Sean and Nolan had their 4-yr/2-mo appointments Monday. Sean was 38.75 lb and 40.25". Nolan was 12lb 5oz and 24". They were both 75th %ile for weight and 50th for height. Sean has apparently chunked up a bit, but she said he was well within the normal BMI range. He got his MMR shot and is having a reaction to it. We just noticed it today. He complained of arm pain in that area yesterday, but I just assumed it was the usual post-shot pain. I feel bad now, because I never even looked at it really. Didn't expect it, I guess. His whole upper arm is swollen, hard, hot, and red down to the elbow. I called the doc and they weren't concerned, just said to watch it, ice it, and give benadryl/pain relievers if needed. We have him benadryl and he has been passed out for 3 hours.
