Baby girl went for her 15-month well visit, and she's a tiny thing -- for the past 3 well visits, the doctor's said, "She's just petite." I don't know why he keeps reminding the barely 5 feet tall mama that her girl will probably be petite.
I knew Baby girl would be getting a few shots today, unfortunately. I did get the doctor to hold off on the chicken pox, at least for a few months; I'm not really seeing the need for the chicken pox vaccine and would like to research it a bit more -- what are your thoughts on it?
Anyway, the nurse comes back with some kind of booster, the MMR, and the flu vaccines, and she proceeds to inform me that Baby girl will take them in her arm since she's now a "big girl." I look down at Baby girl, and she has tiny arms, unlike her chunky thighs, which were made for shots. So the nurse explains where the shots are administered in the arm, and I attempt the "hold" position (horribly, I might add, that the nurse asks if she should get someone else to hold my baby. Um....the child will be screaming as is, and to have a stranger hold her?!?)
Anyway, she's still my baby -- she got her shots, in her thighs.
