A Growing Boy

Sebastian went for his belated 18 month check-up. I can hardly believe he is already a year and a half old.  He got a good report all around and was very good at the doctor.  He is still a small fry, weighing in at 21.6 pounds (which puts him in the 3rd percentile for weight), and 31 3/4″, but he is growing well on his own curve.  He trustingly lay on his back and held my hands as he looked at needles the nurse had on the tray. The look on the poor boy’s face when she stuck him was so sad–surprise and hurt he looked at her with a “how could you do that to me?” look. He recovered fairly quickly with a drink of water and off we went.

About Wendy McCollum

I am a single mom to five wonderful boys. Life is an adventure, with many twists and turns. We live in hope, always, for our great God can redeem all things. There are so many funny and precious moments that slip by too fast. Perhaps here I can save them for when my own memory fails.
