I envy children this. They wake up each day, excited about the new day, thinking only of the new things they get to do and learn. They are not plagued with fear and doubts, with worries about yesterday and tomorrow. They know only of today.
Maddie had her 12 month well check this past week, and the doctor said she is above the curve in both motor skills and intellectual development. I knew she was smart, but wow is it fantastic to have that rather biased opinion collaborated by a medical professional!! We also went ahead and gave her the H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccinations. I know there is some disagreement out there about the swine flu vaccine, but I have always been strongly in favor of vaccines. Protect them where we can, I say, since there are so many things we can't protect them from (heartbreak, teasing..."metal mouth", anyone??).
Have a great weekend!!
