M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

Yep, in just three weeks Jack will have his first trip to Disneyland, and can I tell you, I get more excited every day! Hardy won a trip from work so we are going to be livin' it up in the Magic Kingdom. I just can't wait to see Jack's face as he takes it all in. It will definitely be a different trip trying to work around nap times and sticking to the little rides, but Aunt Gwen is coming down to join us for a day or two, and I've talked with 3 other people I know who are going to be there with their families that same week, so we should be able to get in a good Space Mountain ride or two. SO EXCITED!

I talked with Jack's pediatrician today at his well baby check about our trip. I'm a little freaked out about the plane ride but she said to keep him hydrated and spray out his nose a lot and that should help to keep him healthy on our trip. She's also going to try to get him his RSV shot before we go which would make me feel a ton better since it seems to be a good immune boost. I also finally got him his H1N1 vaccine today so that makes me feel a heck of a lot better as well.

Jack did great at his check up today. Dr. M couldn't believe how good he looks. He's 75% for height, 10% for weight, and his huge head is still in the 95%. I also had her check his sats and he was hovering around 87%. We like that. I actually just bought a little finger pulse-ox that arrived in the mail today so we could check his sats while we are out of town and just have a little piece of mind. It will be interested to see what his sats do at sea level and in the airplane.

And to answer your question Hilary, no, he still isn't walking. Stinker. Despite all my best efforts, he just won't let go.

That will be so much fun! We are going to Disneyland the week after Christmas as the present from Santa this year.

Don't worry too much about walking. Nathan didn't get there until he was 20 months. He hoovered at scooting around furniture for 2 1/2 months before he decided to walk.

What kind of pulse ox are you using? Is it smaller than the little box machine that plugs into the wall?

What a great time to go to Disney!!! The holidays are great at the Magic Kingdom! We took Owen last year at the same time while we were doing transplant stuff at UCLA. Make sure you stay late for the fake snow on main street!!

Jack will have fun!!!
