Lucy Hates Everyone

There’s a song by Get Set Go called “I Hate Everyone”. That’s pretty much how Lucy feels today. She hates us. She hates her doctor. She hates his nurse. She had five shots today. I kind of don’t blame her for hating everyone. šŸ™‚

Lucy was a trooper during her 8-week checkup today. She had her hips rotated, which caused her to cry. I told her that was nothing compared to what was coming. After her checkup, the doctor picked her up under her arms and looked her in the eyes, and she immediately stopped crying. He must intimidate her like he does me. šŸ™‚

Then, the nurse came in to give Lucy her vaccinations. We went ahead and did all five today. The doctor said the effects would be the same if we did them all at once or split them and did three one day and two on a different day, and that most of his patients make the same choice we did. I’m glad we got them all done at once.

Despite the tears, her checkup went well. She weighs 8 lbs., 13 oz., a gain of 5 oz. from last Thursday; and is 21.5 inches long. The doctor said she’s on the small side but is growing well. I think we’re going to have a petite girl, which is interesting because I am anything but petite.

The next checkup is at 4 months. Hopefully Daddy will come again because it’s easier to watch her get her shots when he’s there.

    Aww…I don’t look forward to those doctor’s appointments. Glad Joe was able to be there with you.

    I’m definitely not looking forward to Max getting his shots. I think I will do the same thing and have them all done in one go.
    I don’t know when you updated your blog, but I just wanted to let you know that I love the new look!

    Aww. I had to take Montana to get her shots last week and it traumatized me–and she didn’t even seem to notice them! I can only imagine how much harder it is with a baby.
