3 year check up

On Monday, Colin had his three year check up with his pediatrician. The visit was a little overwhelming for us since it was his first visit back since his two year check up when he was first diagnosed. The visit went well and we were glad to here that his physical development continues to be well within the average range. Here are the numbers:

Weight: 33lbs 8 oz (75%)
Height: 37 5/8 inches (50%)

On Friday evening, we dressed Colin and Maddie in their pj's and drove down to Hubbard Park and drove through the festival of lights. From there, as Colin really wanted to see a Snowman and Rudolph, we drove around town, each picking our favorite decorated houses. By the time we came home, it was way past bedtime and both Colin and Maddie were soon asleep.

On Saturday, we continued to get in the Christmas spirit. We put up the Christmas tree, Colin and Mommy made crafty garland with construction paper and glue and Maddie and Daddy sorted all the non breakable ornaments! The night ended with a household tradition, a glass of wine, wrapping presents, and watching "It's a Wonderful Life" in front of a cozy fire.

The weekend ended with a family dinner at Gigi and Papa's house where we had a great meal and played all night with Nanny, Poppy, Gigi, Papa, Auntie Courtney, Uncle Mike and Uncle Jack.

This week will be full of Christmas preparation, a visit to clinic for monthly IV chemo and hopes for a white Christmas!
