The first part of the visit was a general check up. Despite spitting up what seems 4 of the 5oz Cailyn eats, she has packed on some weight and grew a few cm's in length. She remains in the 50th percentile which is great, tracking at average on all measures. After the check up the two dreaded needles came out. Dr P was super quick, one in one leg, the second in the other leg. Cailyn had a delayed reaction and shortly after the second one started to cry. It broke my heart. I felt uber guilty that I had done this too her. Fortunately she is such a great little girl that she recovered quickly and was ready to get the heck out of there! Once home for the rest of the day, Cailyn did well. Late in the afternoon she showed signs of being a bit fussy and had a little cry to let me know. She then had a nice sleep, then a little cry then another little sleep - these things are all outside of her norm. She doesn't cry and she rarely naps so I knew the pattern was her dealing with the medical toxins and discomfort at point of entry. Poor little sausage.
Cailyn continues to say "HI!" and feels the need to interrupt adult conversation with her boisterous and adorable Hi! She can hold rattles, toys etc with ease and sits up with support - not long now until she can sit up on her own. We have not started her on solids and do not plan to until she is minimum six months. The timing of feeding solids is another parent controversy with different schools of thoughts. Cailyn continues to sleep through the night YAY! Every day is full of fun with our little girl!
