It has been one full day since Isabella has had her shots. Overall, she was really very good. When we were at the doctor's office the nurses checked her vitals, weighed and measured her. She is now 11 lbs. 12 oz. and is 23 1/4" tall!!!! The doctor says that compared to other girls her age she is in the 75th percentile for her weight and between the 75th to 90th percentile for her height. What a big girl we have.
So the nurse gave her 5 shots and one oral medication. The oral medication was easy to swallow, for me that is, but the shots...I nearly cried as I held her hands. It was a cry I never heard before. When it was over I was happy to see the little munchin fall right back to sleep. There were very short periods of crying pangs, but she mostly slept all night. In fact, she slept from 7:30pm to 3:00am. Yikes! But, boy was she hungry at 3am. And then she fell right back to sleep. So far, she has been an angel this morning.
