Uhh, so Ben's Birthday is actually tomorrow, LOL. I swear I'll get it right next year.
That said, he got his birthday present early: vaccinations, 2 wolf tooth extractions and a float. I'm sure he's not thrilled- but he was actually very good for the whole ordeal. A few hours later he was definitely seeking comfort in the form of me holding his head in my chest. So I stood there, stroking his neck and telling him what a good boy he is.
Maybe next year I'll get him something he might actually want!
