Good news: Eli likes "Green Eggs and Ham!" I have been patiently waiting for the day when he would sit with us and read the entire book. And he does! He wants to read it all the time.
Also: I should really count my blessings that this didn't happen earlier, but Eli climbed out of his crib last week. It was actually really funny-since he didn't hurt himself. The house was silent; I had made sure of it to preserve the nap as long as possible. And then I heard, "Knock, knock! Knock, knock mom!" I opened the door and he was standing there with a triumphant smile on his face. I was strangely proud of him. So we took the front side of the crib off that night and he has done surprisingly well with the "big boy bed." Wouldn't you still want to take a nap and go to bed at night if you ran around an average of four hours a day?
Which reminds me: Eli is apparently overweight. At his last doctor's appointment, the doctor told me that he is in the 95th percentile for weight and that his BMI is a 19. Yikes. Does head size figure into total BMI? I told the doctor thank you,
that I am very health conscious, and that I am really not ultra concerned because he RUNS ALL DAY LONG. I actually really appreciated him bringing it up; he said that they are seeing kids having heart attacks at age 19, so there is a huge push to stem off childhood obesity. I think that is great and I appreciate him bringing up a sensitive subject.
PS Don't judge me for going into my kid's room while he was asleep and turning on the light to take a picture; it's a good thing I did. The diaper was off (again.)
