Miss Shannon had her 6 month appointment yesterday, and she was a champ.
She weighs in at a hefty (har har) 14lbs 4oz and measures 23.75″ long! That puts her in the 14th percentile in both aspects. Tiny, sure, but healthy!
She handled her shots like a pro, and only cried for a few minutes. Luckily Daddy was around this time to make things all better! I gave her a half dose of Infant Tylenol before we left, and that helped her legs not to swell, and she didn’t run a low grade temp like she has in the past.
She was, however, a total spaz the rest of the day. She looked like she was hopped up on a little somethin’ extra. She zoomed from one end of the house to the other, panting (which is her, I’m overly excited, response to everything), with her eyes as big as dinner plates. Thank goodness for the crock pot! I don’t know if I could have actually cooked a real meal!
The real challenge came at bedtime. I had to play Daddy yesterday night, because Mike ended up working pretty late, and she wasn’t having any of it. She finally fell asleep in bed with me, around 1 A.M. (thank goodness I can nurse lying down). She was up and ready to party by 3.
She’s now finally gone back to sleep (after a rather loud, lengthy fight), and hopefully she’ll take a nice, long nap!
Thank heavens for her swing!
