My little lady had her ONE year doctors appointment yesterday...
I waited until after her birthday because of all her birthday festivities...
So yesterday was the day...
I scheduled it for a Friday and the latest appointment I could get...
Chick was talking up a storm to the doctor.
The doctor was VERY impressed with how verbal and SMART she was.
She said that most kids who are more verbal are slower in walking...and being active.
And vise versa.
That made me feel better...makes sense.
I of course was thinking, "Why isn't she walking...am I doing something wrong..."
But...All is good. Phew.
Appointment checked out well...
19lbs 12.8oz...my tiny tot.
29.5 inches long...
On to the shots...dun dun dun.
First...They "forgot" to register us for our shots so we were in the waiting room for a LONG time.
Finally it was time.
I think being a parent the shots effect us more? It's awful.
She had to get 4 shots...2 in each leg.
Her laying there...screaming. Looking at me with terror. Worst feeling ever.
I scooped her up as fast as I could and started crying myself. Bleh.
She had to get her blood drawn.
She hasn't had to get blood drawn since she was born...and then it was just a little prick in the heal.
This wasn't just a prick in the heal.
This was an adult blood draw...In the vain and everything.
I had to sit with her on my lap...one lab guy had to hold her arm straight while the other dug around with a needle to find her vain.
Screaming, red in the face...
I couldn't do anything.
Finally it was all over. My girl was poked and picked at.
Me...I felt terrible.
Finally by 4ish we were headed home.
Bugs went down around 5:30 and didn't wake up until 10:00...I fed her some food and she played and snugged for a bit...
This morning....oh this morning.
I woke to screams I've never heard before.
Poor girl had a fever.
Was hot and sweaty.
I scooped her up...
What else can I do?
She's a trooper that girl.
She calmed down...
Watched some Dora Dora.
She's obsessed with playing with the dogs food and water bowls...
She made a mess with the water.
The screams we're back.
She calmed again...
Down for a nap.
Hello Saturday...It's only 10:30 AM....
It's going to be a LONG day.
