We had Braden's 15 month check-up today. Me being the strong Mama I am (HA!) told Matt to not worry about coming with us since it was in the middle of the day. Well, I forgot about the fact that not only did he need shots but they also test their iron and lead levels at this appointment.
Here's we are waiting for the doc to come see us. Thank goodness for cherry flavored sticks to keep a boy happy.
Braden's 15 month stats:
Height: 32 inches - 77 percentile
Weight: 28.5 pounds - 91 percentile
Head Circ: 19.75 - 98 percentile
My solid boy with lots of brains. :)
The shots went well and he didn't even shed a tear. Even though he didn't cry, he definitely wasn't happy about the situation. He yelled at the nurse a little bit and then ripped the band aids off...like he was trying to prove a point or something.
Then down to the lab we went. Last time we did this (with Alexa) they just pricked her finger and squeezed some blood out so I was a little surprised when they brought him in a room to lay him on a bed with a tray of a bunch of stuff on it. Apparently they changed how they did this and now they take blood from the arm. With a needle. Obviously. I asked the girl if I could leave the room and she told me that they needed me to help hold him down (even though there was 2 of them in there.) I told her I couldn't do that and she said "We're busy back here." (With a smile I might add!) And I was thinking, 'Really, I couldn't tell from the 20 minute wait.' UGH So there I was pinning my baby down so they could get blood. He was such a trooper and once again barely cried. He even gave her a smile as we were walking out the door. Much more forgiving then this Mommy is. :)
