Gabe had his seven year check up yesterday (Oh my, seven already???) it was routine, however he had to do something new this year; something that surprised even me. He had to "turn his head and cough" while the doc checked to make sure he didn't have a hernia. Even the doctor had to suppress a giggle while doing it because Gabe was being so goofy about it. He stood there with his arms across his chest and refused to cough. She said "well Gabe, if you don't cough I will have to stay like this all night and it's not very comfortable for either of us" He finally started to laugh and then did a *VERY* dramatic cough. What an ordeal, of all the things to have him be stubborn about, this one was the one I did NOT expect him to fight. Silly boy.
He's getting so big; the doctor instructed him to be sure to take a bath or shower every day (thanks Dr. S, we needed that push) and to wear deodorant if he was very sweaty (and ugh, yes he is and he stinks) and told him he was on his way to becoming a very nice young man...and that he is. Hard to believe he's seven already, time sure flies when you're having fun!
