A big adventure

Wednesday, Dillon & I went on a big adventure. She had her 3 year pediatrician visit at the hospital. I've been riding the bus quite a bit when I go up to the hospital since it's free, our bus system is really nice and it's a total of 30 minutes I get to read a magazine while someone else drives. As an added bonus, not one person asks me why the whole time! Anyway, Dillon has seen the bus many times and has heard me talking about it, and so has been asking to ride the bus. I decided that this would be a great time to do it. So, we rode the bus yesterday. She loved it! Everyone that got on the bus got asked "Riding the bus is fun isn't it?!" with a big smile. It wasn't a big crowd on the bus, so several smiled at her and talked to her. She got to see the big construction vehicles along the way. Once we got to the hospital, she got to play with all the big toys in the waiting room at the pediatric clinic. The visit went very well, with Dillon, true to tradition, crying the entire time the nurse was in the room, then giggling everytime the PA tried to touch her. As for the vital stats- she's just shy of 30 lbs (I thought she was more than that....) and around 37 inches. That puts her at 34th percentile for weight and 40th for height. We had to wait a few minutes for the bus back, so we watched the groundskeepers put out mulch. Dillon, of course, had a million comments and questions about this. Fortunately, the guy was amused when she informed him he was doing it wrong, that he was supposed to have the rake turned around the other way.

All told, she loved it and wants to do it again.
