What a miserable morning!
Today Karis had her 2 month check-up........and vaccinations. It was utterly miserable. My baby is usually so sweet natured, but she started screaming even before the tops were off the shots because she didn't like the nurse holding her legs down. As we all know, she always wants to be able to kick! So she was downright mad and scared as well that she couldn't move her legs. My job was to hold her hands and try to soothe her with my voice, which was one of the hardest things I've ever done because she looked at me like, "How could you?" "Can't you make it stop?" And when she is really upset, she screams and it sounds like "Maaa, maaa! Maaaaa, maaaa!" So it really sounds like she is begging me to help her, which of course, I couldn't, and was even partner to the crime. So I definitely felt like the meanest person ever and begged her to forgive me afterwards. But I know that it was for her own good, so I had to do it. But I must admit it brought tears to my eyes... On a happier note, the doctor said that she is perfectly healthy in every way. She now weighs 11 pounds, 7 ounces and is 23.5 inches long. So she is normal concerning weight and still at the top of the charts for height. Which is no surprise to anyone :) I do also really like my doctor. She has a 4-month baby of her own, which is nice because she has just been through everything that we are going through now. So I really feel like I can ask her any questions and she knows exactly whats going on. Plus, she's nice :) So that made the visit a little better.
