This week Devon went for his 18 month checkup. He got the last set of vaccines for a long time — he won’t need another jabbing until he’s four — and we’re all pretty relieved.
The nurse checked him over and confirmed what we’ve already suspected: he’s improbably tall, skinny, and stubborn. We don’t know why.
The nurse also had some bad news: now that he’s a big boy he’ll have to give up pacifiers. He’s been teething furiously for the last few weeks, and having a soother is the only thing that makes him happy. It seems so cruel to take it away now, but it’s all part of growing up — the bigger you are, the less fun you’re allowed to have.
