Addison's 9 Month Checkup

Addison went to the doctor this morning for her 9 month checkup! We went right during her morning nap time, so it was bad scheduling on my part. She was tired, and crabby, and impatient.

She only gained a few ounces in the last 2 months, but is still above average according to 'the curve'.

Weight: 18.8 pounds
Height: 29 inches

She got her last HepB and her first of 2 flu shots. She also got her finger poked for Hemoglobin and to check her iron. Her Hgb was good, and we have to wait a couple days for the results of her iron.

They did the shots first, both in her left thigh...and she started screaming before they even poked her because she DOES NOT like laying down, let along being held down by two adults. So there were lots of tears....and then I had to hold her down on my lap so they could poke her fingertip and then squeeze a tube of blood out of her. Luckily because she was so worked up and screaming, her blood was really pumping and she bled like crazy!

She took a nice long afternoon nap! I wish I could have as well, but I had cupcakes and cookies to decorate for a coffee tonight.

Tomorrow Nick has the morning off so we need to figure out with we are going to do with the 2nd bathroom. The plumber is coming Saturday morning!!!
