Today was Rylee’s 18 month Well Baby Visit. It was about as much fun as we expected it to be. She cried from the moment the nurse said hello to her till she was back in her car seat. She remembers the nurses voices because they are the ones who administer the shots.
Rylee doesn’t like anyone touching her when she’s naked, unless it’s Mommy or Daddy giving her a bath. Other than that, hands off! So she cried through the entire visit. I was amazed when the doctor gave her a sticker because she was anything but an ideal patient.
After the agony of the exam she had to endure FOUR shots! I felt so badly for her. After the appointment she went to the store with Daddy. Before they left I told her we could have anything she wanted for dinner. Don’t you know they came home with a big bag of fried chicken. Rylee isn’t a big fan of eating meat normally. Well tonight she snarfed down more chicken than I ate. She definitely takes after her father when it comes to fried chicken.
After eating half a chicken she ate a bunch of applesauce. This is always such a treat for Mommy because Rylee must have her own spoon when eating anything that requires one to feed her. So there are two spoons going into the bowl at the same time. She’s getting better at putting the food on her spoon and actually getting it to her mouth.
I also had an ultrasound today. The doctors had wanted more measurements at 28 weeks. So off I went. I’m happy to report that all is well. Squirt is now 2 pounds 11 ounces, quite a healthy little girl already.
I have a feeling the next 6 weeks or so are going to fly by. When I realize that they have flown by I will be about six weeks from my due date. I can’t believe how fast it’s gone until now. I’m sure the last few weeks, as usual, will drag by again. Here’s hoping I actually make it to the weekly doctor visits this time!
