Bug turned 4 months old on December 5th but her checkup was not until December 24th. Yes folks, Christmas Eve! It was not too bad because we were not going anywhere or the day but still, it was a bit of a hassle.
So what were Bug's stats you ask? My pretty baby weighed in at 14 lbs and measured 24 inches. That is half her sister's weight and 2/3 her sister's height. Poor BooBoo, her sister is going to be bigger than her soon and she is not even a year old yet. I am very happy about Bug's stats because that means that I am doing my job nursing her and taking care of her.
Little Bug also had to have three shots in her baby legs. It would not have been too much of an ordeal if she had not fallen asleep breastfeeding while waiting for the nurse. When the nurse came in and saw Bug asleep she told me I could just hold Bug during the immunizations. Yeaaaaaaah, that did not go over so well. Bug immediately woke up as the alcohol swab was being rubbed onto her legs. Then she preceded to squirm during the shots and that resulted in a huge knot on her right thigh. I am not looking forward to her 6 month checkup :(
