Needles Are Still Bad
Cal's 15 month doctor visit was today. I thought it was his 18 month visit. What a great mom I am. Don't even know that my child isn't 18 months old yet. Whatever. I just say he's a year old and go with that.
Anyway, here's the stats: Head 50 cm, Length 32 in. and weight 24 lbs. 14 ozs. According to their little charts he's in the 95th percentile for head size, the 75th percentile for length and the 50-75th percentile for weight. So far it looks like he's shorter and lighter compared to Duncan at that age so maybe he won't end up being as tall as Duncan will. Their head sizes are comparable though—big brains!
He got three shots today. Two standard child immunization shots and one flu shot. Yep, I got him the flu shot. Everyone was telling me to ask about that so I did. Those flu deaths in the news were making them nervous. So, thanks to the flu shot he gets to go back in a month for another, booster flu shot. Lucky Cal. He so loves shots.
He's been alternately cranky and happy tonight. He took his nap very late today since the doctor's appointment was at 2:20. Then he woke up in a bad mood and didn't eat anything for supper even though we had his favorite, mashed potatoes and gravy.
After dinner and his bath, he was Mr. Cranky Baby from Hell and couldn't be consoled. We revisited puke-a-thon too. That was fun.
But it's after 9:30 now and he's been a happy camper for about the past hour so I'm hopeful that the night will pass peacefully.
