The Checkup

Hello again, dear readers!

Today was a long and busy day. We had to be at the doctor's office at 8AM for the baby's one-year checkup and immunizations. Unlike the baby, who is brim full of energy starting as soon as the sun comes up, us biggers need at least a gallon of coffee to get close to functional this early.

All tuckered out

Fortunately, we didn't have to wait long. The doctor was absolutely blown away by how well the baby is growing and developing. She's right on par with a 15-18 month old. Her vocabulary impressed him the most, since she speaks now about nine words ("mama", "dada", "butt", "kitty", "puppy", "doggy", "broom-broom" (car), "num-num" (food), "titty") at an age when most kids speak one or two. He then ordered up her immunization shots as well as blood work to test for lead. Needless to say, the baby did NOT appreciate being poked and screamed accordingly. But, she stopped crying after a few minutes.

After this painful bit of medical necessity, we went to Walmart to get some cat food and juice. We also got the baby a cookie for being such a brave patient. Later on in the day, however, I noticed that she'd developed a runny nose and was congested. I wasn't sure if she'd picked up a cold from the doctor's office or if it was a side effect of the vaccines, but it's something I'm keeping an eye on. Lots of breastmilk and orange juice in the meantime.
