Wednesday With Words. :)

I took Cub to my doctor's appointment today and he did awesome! He sat in a chair and looked at his books for forty-five minutes--no small feat, considering his recent I-don't-want-to-sit-still-in-restaurant-high-chair fiascos! I figured the doctor's office was definitely more boring than a restaurant, so I was a bit nervous. It was the first time he's come with me (I've always had a sitter), and I brought him this time since my appointments are now fairly short. Needless to say, I was so proud of him. After dinner, we made Rice Krispie Treats as a special treat. He loved the marshmallows, but wasn't so sure about the finished product. Although, he did enjoy pressing the treats into the pan!

Yay Cubbie!

Even though I'm sure he didn't understand why we got to make special treats in his honor tonight, it was so fun for me to reward him for being not only well-behaved (that's an expectation), but for being well-behaved for what I considered to be a long time, in a rather boring environment (that's above and beyond my expectations)! I was reminded again that while this age does have its challenges, the rewards get better and better, too. I was so proud of my little man. Sorry for the parental bragging. It just made my heart happy!


  1. Omg you have the cutest little boy EVER.

  2. that's a HUGE "job-well-done" for him!! You're more brave than I ever was...I always dropped mine off at Christine's house or left him with my husband before he went to work for those appointments. way to go Cub!

  3. That's awesome! I often wonder if Levi will ever sit still in a chair by himself. Haha! That definitely deserved some krispy treats! HORRAY!

  4. Mmmm, delicious - the baby and the treats!

  5. I had a similar experience just last week, our short appt. turned out to be THREE hours!! I've never been so proud of my boy :-) Also, BAWLED at your last post..I couldn't even finish it...same feelings going on in this house.
    Great job with the treats too!! That's always fun.
