My Mom and I both visit the doctor…I was so brave.
Dear Mom and Dad, Well this was a big day. My Michigan pediatrician and I met for the first time. He was very nice, and very gentle. Nana says he has been taking care of little princess’ for 30 years and it shows cause he was sooooo good. He has all kinds of helpers, and I once again was waited on hand and foot. I also got weighed today. I am 10lbs. 12oz. and he says to tell you what a good job you have done with me these past ten weeks. I am growing and doing so good. He says my heart sounds good and I will see the pediatric cardiologist at Children’s Hospital in the next weeks to confirm all the same things we already know… which is I am awesome!
I think getting weighed was the best part of the day since I GOT TO BE NAKED, no diaper even…so I was smiling. The sad part is, that fun did in fact come to an end, as I had to get five immunizations. (FIVE, YIKES!). Thankfully one was oral, and I was able to drink it. The nurse says that many babies cannot do this easily they have trouble swallowing, but not me… I WAS A ROCK STAR… and Aunt Arri took a picture to prove it with Nana’s cell phone. You can’t really see it, but I took special care to wear my tee shirt that says mommy love me, and I think Nana was willing to try and put me into two of them just to have one that said Daddy loves me, but wisely decided to forgo that idea since she once again had me bundled up like an Eskimo baby… and two tee shirts may have made me melt.
I will not lie, I don’t like shots… and yes, there were a few tears, but they were brief. Nana says that I am brave as mom and dad. The doc also says it is time to try a new formula so I can do something about the little “tummy” issues I’ve been having. Nana got the new stuff on the way home and I have eaten it twice… it is even better than my other formula.. and I hope it does the trick. It will be a few days before we know.
You and I both had appointments mom, and I hope yours went good. I need you to take really good care of yourself so Nana doesn’t worry about you and we can be together again soon. I love you both very much, and you two would be sooooo proud of your princess… I ‘AM’ ARMY strong….
