Jonah was due for his 3 year well check before we left Vidalia but our sweet Docka Russ suggested we wait until we got here so we could establish ourselves with a new doctor before we actually needed a doctor. I scheduled an appointment with a new clinic based on Tracee Gmitro's recommendation. I called about three weeks before we got to town just to assure I would be able to get in soon.
A 3 year well check is so different than one for a 2 year old. It was as if they didn't think Jonah was a baby anymore! They kept calling him a cute little boy. GASP! Little boy? Excuse me...he is a baby! I know, I know, he has to grow up but I just didn't expect it so soon. They did all kinds of new things to him.
He even tee-teed in a cup for the first time. Yes, I'm quite sure none of you cared to see his tee-tee in a cup but you know me...I document it all!!! Besides, Dan missed this appointment and I wanted him to see how great Jonah did!
The clinic moved to a brand new building just a few weeks ago. Each room is a different state or area of the country. We were put in "Alaska." The office has a giraffe theme so each room has a hidden giraffe in it. Jonah took some time to find the hidden giraffe. With a little help from mommy, he spotted it after a couple of minutes.
His new Doctor is Dr. Benjamin. She came in an introduced herself to us then Jonah asked her "Are you my new Doctor? Do you know Docka Russ?"
We had to leave his appointment with Dr. Benjamin and go straight to a lab to have blood drawn to test for allergies. Due to Jonah's reaction to bug bites, Dr. Benjamin felt we needed an Epi-pen in case his reactions get worse. Had I known how awful it would be to hold my baby down while they took blood from him, I would have waited until Dan was there. It was terrible! The videos below uploaded out of order but you can sense the sadness in the 2nd video. Poor guy!
