6 month appointment

So we had the 6 month doctor's appointment and all is well. Our doctor is very happy with her progress and she is doing great with her weight and height so we are very very happy. We also had the last of the shots which are always a little traumatic, but Sophie handled it well and Angie stayed true to self and looked the other way while i held Sophie during the shots. Our nurse always says that the second shot is very painful and it always raises my blood pressure a bit. So we are all clear now to eat all kinds of food and we have started with some banana for this week. Hard to gauge how much she likes it and how much she is actually getting, but she makes some funny funny faces while eating it. Here is a picture that makes me laugh. Beth, you are right, cover everything in plastic for the next decade.




Thanks for reading

She is so cute!

If the shots are really stressing you out, then next time she has to get them (1 year?) go to the pharmacy beforehand and get the Emla patch, cut it in half, and stick a half on each leg (or arm, wherever they're going to do the needle) one hour before your appointment. It will numb her leg, and she won't feel the shot at all. I did that to Nova's ears before we pierced them at 2 months and she didn't even flinch.

I know I am bossy and always trying to give you advice, but I can't help it - I just have so much wisdom to impart (haha, just kidding...sort of).
