Doctor Visit

I'm not sure why they call it a "visit" because it's not really much fun and, when you visit someone, isn't it supposed to be fun?! She had to get 4 shots. It was so pitiful that mommy even cried. She weighed 12 lbs and was 22 inches long. That puts her in the 75th percentile for weight and 50th for height. The doctor recommended putting some oatmeal in her nighttime bottle and, WOW, she slept from 9 pm until 5 am. The books all say that it doesn't work, but apparently it does!! I just hope this continues. It sure would make me feel a little more rested.

We had to give her some Tylenol so that she wouldn't feel so bad. It's pretty easy giving medicine to an infant. I'm sure that will not last, though : ) It was grape flavor and smelled like it would taste really good. Why didn't they have those flavored meds when I was little?! Well, I think they did, but it wasn't the same. They have like 100 different flavors now that the pharmacist can add to any medicine.

Since she didn't feel good, Ben decided to put her in the bath tub with him. (Sorry, no pic of that : ) ). It was so sweet and she loved it! It really relaxed her and she went straight to sleep in his arms afterwards.
