My poor baby this evening. She was exhausted! Abby had her first official Doctors appointment today for a physical and eval. She was so cheerful and has no idea what was in store for her. Poor baby! She got 4 shots and the screams with those shots were like nothing I have ever heard from her before. I was afraid she would have bad breath holding spells with her cries but thankfully she didn't. The nurse said these were some of the worst and most painful shots to get too. She also had her blood drawn for various checks etc. She screamed terribly for that too but nothing like with the shots. The lab tech was a good one tho and got her on her first try. My baby rallied quick tho after the shots and the blood draw and quickly returned to her usual cheerful self.
She weighed 20.4 pounds or 9.3 kilograms. Her height was 30 inches. Her weight put her in the 10Th percentile, and her height was in the 25Th percentile so at least she is on the charts. She gave her Doctor a big present while we were there so the stool sample was taken care of :) He said she looks great :) Her ears are full of wax tho so I have to put 2 drops of hydrogen peroxide in them each night for 2 weeks to soften it up. She was a little imp during her visit showing off by doing multiple headstands on the floor :) while we talked to the Doctor. (Meema went with us too).
Poor little one was just plain tuckered out and fell asleep in her car seat as soon as we pulled out of the parking lot. Luckily her Doctors office is just 5 or 10 min from my house. When I took her out of her car seat she stayed fast asleep (Usually she wakes when I move her). It was around 615 PM and tho I hated to do it I laid her in her crib to sleep a while. I woke her at 710 PM and she was a little clingy but seemed okay. I had premedicated her with Tylenol right before the shots. She ate a good dinner, then played a while and had a bath. Usual bedtime is 900 PM and she went down about 1000 PM so not to bad. I gave her Motrin so hopefully she will sleep all night.
Finally, Her Doctor told me to get rid of her bottle?? She will be 16 months on March 13Th. I don't want to yet, it is a bonding time and also really helps me to get her to sleep at night. She only gets 1 at night and sometimes 1 at nap time. Opinions??? The Doctors main concern was fear of tooth decay so I can understand where he is coming from.
