Here's the good:
Olivia's weighing in at 18lbs 5oz, she's 28" long and her head is pretty much off the charts for her age - haha...the doctor is currently not worried about the shape despite me bringing it up twice now in our last few visits nonetheless he took a few more measurements and said he would check it again in another month.
Missy was due to get her last Hep B vaccination, Meningitis & Tetanus with whooping cough-oh and a blood draw to check iron levels -Yuck, Bleh, Bah Humbug!
Whooping Cough cases are in the area and anyone who has a baby with a CHD or other medically fragile baby knows that Whooping Cough is bad for a baby without medical complications - throw in something additional like a CHD and it can be fatal. When I told the doctor I was not keen on 6 sticks for one visit he said that definitely put off the Hep B, wasn't crazy about holding off on Meningitis but was adament on Tetanus. I agree, I thought of all of the things that we had on the to-do list, getting protection from Whooping Cough as the most important. Too bad it also has the most adverse reaction from the kiddos.
She took it in pure Olivia fashion, now busting out her new ear piercing scream and calming down as soon as she was tucked back in her stroller. She's hanging out with me right now in her bouncer alternating between whining and babbling. I'm giggling a little bit that tonight's Brian's night to be up with her...but of course am here if
