Today was Sophie’s 1 year doctor’s appointment. Three shots, including the flu shot, and lead/iron blood tests. She handled the blood drawing for the lead/iron without crying at all. Although the looks she was giving the nurse were capable of burning holes. The shots? Eh, not so much.
I was planning on getting back to work by 10, but she fell asleep in the car on the way to daycare. So I parked near the daycare house and took a quick nap with her. We both needed it. We all have dark circles under our eyes from a mostly sleepless night last night. Yes, she has another cold. Now with coughing! Yay!
She also has eczema and a new prescription for a hydrocortizone-laced Eucerin cream. Which means I was right all along. I did ask him about dietary correlations with eczema – like eliminating dairy – and he said the end result is about the same. Except you are getting less calcium and other nutrients. So, we’re going to try the cream first and see what happens.
Now onto the stats:
Weight: 20 lbs, 15 oz (50%)
Height: 30.9″ (95%)
Head: 47cm (~18″)
She’s a little beanpole: she grew 2.5″ since the August appointment and only gained 14 oz this time.
She impressed the doctor by walking all over the place and showing him the signs for “dog”, “hungry” and “all done”. She also bounced up and down when we showed her a rabbit and a frog. She also made “brrr” noises for the toy school bus they had in the room.
This weekend is her belated birthday party and we’re hosting my mom, grandmother, aunt, sister, brother-in-law, nephew and niece. I’m being a little ambitious with the amount of things I plan to cook (muffins! cupcakes! soup! chicken! bread!). This is all in addition to the cleaning and straightening we need to do. Luckily, there is still some wine left from last night to help spur things along.
