Mia had her 2 year check-up + catch up vaccines the other day. My poor girl must have had some back experiences in the past because she shakes and cries and screams the ENTIRE time we are at the doctor. The minute we leave, she's her old self again!
She is finally on the charts, in the 25 percentile (21lbs, 10 oz)! She is finally over 20 lbs ~ hooray! As our ped. mentioned, "she was scrawny when she first came home", and "it is amazing what some good nutrition will do". After Mia was weighed in and we went back to the room, she was grabbing her clothes on the exam table and trying to get them on. All the while she was pitifully saying, "bye-bye" and waving frantically. My heart was aching for her ~ she was SO scared. I wanted to yell - "just give her the shots already!!!" when they wanted her to do an eye exam!? She was inconsolable, needless to say, the vision test was postponed!!
The little miss wasn't the only one crying. . . when the doctor reviewed her immunization schedule he recommended doing the MMR that day with the chicken pox vaccine ~ I've been so nervous about this with all the autism scares. We talked it over and after balling MY eyes out (I apologized over and over, but I found it very emotional. I went through so much to get Mia - I'm just so afraid for anything to happen to her) I trusted our pediatrician.
So glad that visit is behind us ~ we go back in another month for two more "zaps", then the follow month for one "zap" and Mia is caught up on all vaccines!
On to some more cuteness. Mia got a pair of big girl pj's for her birthday and she looked oh so scrumptious in them:
And, one of our Penny-girl just because she is a beautiful dog inside in out. I love our puppy-girl so, so much. She is so patient with the kids (especially Mia!) and all she wants and gives is
L O V E !
