3 year old check up

Aidan had his 3 year old check up yesterday. He had it a bit early since we are leaving tomorrow for WV. The doctor said he is looking great! He is now 40 inches tall and weighs 34 pounds. Luckily he didn't have to have any shots yesterday! I had the doctor look at his boo boo on his leg that he got last Friday. She said I was doing a great job of taking care of it and to just keep it clean and to continue to put Neosporin on it. It is a little irritated still so we have to cover it with gauze if he is going to playing in the dirt or sand. The doctor also filled out Aidans forms that he needs for the preschool he will be attending 3 days a week in the fall.
Aidan is doing great with his potty training. He still has accidents once in awhile but hasn't had one in a long time. He still wears a pull up during his nap and at night time but wakes up dry 95% of the time. One issue we were having was Aidan stripping his pants and underwear off when he had an accident no matter WHERE we were at the time. One time he stripped at Java Mama ! Hopefully he now understands that he CAN"T do that. lol! He also will urinate ANYWHERE outside if has to go ( thanks mom). It has gotten to the point that I have had to threaten him with time out if he pees one more time off our back patio.
The whole passie situation is a different story. It has been over a month now and he STILL asks for it at least 10 times a day. It is really bad when he starts getting sleepy. He has replaced the passie with sucking his thumb and chews on anything he can get his hands on including his shoes. I decided last night that it is no longer worth the fight and broke down and bought him a new pacifier. The rule is that he can only have it in his bed at nap and at night time. This little guy obviously has some oral sensory issues and still needs his pap. He told me last night- "thank you mama for my P-A-P" .little stinker. I told him that if he was old enough to spell it that he is probably to old to have it but that he can give it up when he is ready. lol!
Some really cute things Aidan is saying now....
Pee Wo = pillow
Ordstroms = Nordstroms
maquzee = Jacuzzi
Words that Aidan knows how to read and spell...
Aidan ( he can type this on the computer- thanks dad)
men ( can read but not spell)
VW ( as in the car)
Toyota ( read but not spell)
Mimi ( read but not spell- *not consistent yet)
Aidan also knows all of his letters and sounds, can identify his colors, knows his birthdate, can count to 20, and can identify numbers to ? ( not sure about this one- he is consistently surprising me!). He amazes me every day with the things he observes and knows.

I can't believe that we have to leave tomorrow. These 2 months have flown by! They have been filled with trips to the park, picnics, trips to Seaworld and the Zoo, swimming in the pool, time at the beach, playing with friends, long walks, collecting sticks, rocks, and pinecones, stopping to look at bugs and smell the flowers, eating ice cream and overall just enjoying life! So many great memories have been created the time we have been here. Aidan has really enjoyed spending time with his daddy and I have LOVED the family time we have had together. We intend on having much more of it in the future. There is a good chance that Aidan and I will be returning to San Diego! We still be spending time on the east and west coast but it may look a little differently. We will see what the future holds.....
