Ethan‘s 18-month checkup results: weight– 26 lbs 0.2 oz (11.8 kgs); height– 2 ft 10 inches.
Alexander‘s 4-year-old checkup results: weight– 36 lbs (16.329 kgs); height–3 ft 5 inches.
Ethan had to take 2 shots plus blood test this time. Of course he didn’t like it at all. What made it worse is that the nurses had to call his name twice to go into the lab (they give shots and blood test separately) so it’s twice trauma for poor little Ethan! Other than that, he is just happy and growing strong. Dr. Fan said to keep Ethan’s milk intake under 20 ounces per day.
Alexander didn’t like it when the nurse wanted to check his blood pressure. You could hear him crying/screaming from the registration area. I think kids generally don’t like to go for doctor visits, and Alexander likes it even less now after that accident happened while he was given shots (Somehow Alexander’s hand struggled free and pushed away the needle just as the nurse pulling it out, scratching his skin 3 inches long… ). Anyhow, Alexander had his blood pressure taken afterwards after we explained how it works AND a promise to buy a train for him. Dr. Fan said it’s good to play a little game to have him cover ears and one of his eyes at home, so Alexander would be a bit more cooperated during next visit for vision and hearing check.

I’m not a big fan of pizza unlike Richard and Alexander (umm, and Ethan pretty much eats everything he sees!) so sometimes it’s hard to find a eatery that make us all happy when someome is in the pizza mood. But today we tried out Porky’s Pizza Palace and we decided it to be our pizza place. It’s only 5 minutes away from our house. Not only they have pizzas they have fried chicken, sandwiches and pasta too. We ordered a large combo pizza and 2 pieces of chicken for myself– the pizza is loaded with lots of toppings, the chicken are naked fried and very juicy. I believe it’s a family owned restaurant and they have pretty good business– there were 5 restaurant delivery trucks parking on the street. Try it out if you’re in the neighborhood. It’s on Manor Blvd next to San Leandro Library Manor Branch.

For the last few weeks I have been busy– since early February, I have been busy taking care of my sick boys, then I got sick (around Chinese New Year.. bummer!), then making Jenna’s birthday cake, followed by Richard’s mom visit, then Alexander’s birthday cake and party, and now taking care of Alexander as he is sick again. The flu hit him hard this time. As for myself I don’t think I fully recovered from the illness before as I still have some coughing from last time… and guess what: Ethan started a little coughing this morning… sigh!
Now everything is back to normal life. Time for me to rest. The weather has been nice these couple of days but I don’t want to take chances going outside, so simply staying at home. I can’t wait for the whole family to get healthy so we can enjoy the nice spring weather outside.
I will do some postings later on Jenna’s cake, Alexander’s cake, both boy’s doctor’s checkup stuff like that… check back soon.
