Such a big boy

Friday was a fun day for Jackson. He had a pediatric opthamologist appointment in the morning and his first dentist appointment in the afternoon.

Jackson failed two eye exams at his last well-child checkup, so they wanted to follow that up with an eye doctor. He said that Jackson is slightly nearsighted and has a slight astigmatism, but we don't need to do anything about it right now. His eyes are still changing, and since he sees clearly enough for now, we don't have to do anything. A relief, but I wonder how bad his eyes will end up as he has two strikes against him. (Both of us parents wear corrective lenses.) Only time will tell and he'll have to go back in a year.

Jackson's dentist appointment went really well. He didn't get any x-rays because he was a little scared of the machine, but he did let the dentist count his teeth (20!), polish his teeth, and brush them with a flouride treatment. It helped that the office had a stuffed dragon with teeth that they could show him what they were going to do before they did it to him.

He did so well all day that he deserved a trip to Target and get a toy. And he picked out another Transformer. Surprise, surprise.
