Hi everyone, this is Collin again…yea for me! Boy, I have been through a lot today! Why am I wearing nothing but a diaper and sitting on a sheet of paper you may ask? I had my 9-month check-up today with Dr. Kim!!
The appointment was at 8:30am, and for some reason my mommy thought that that meant that she would get to sleep in an extra hour – not if I had anything to do with it! Of course I had to wake her up at 6:00am like always. What am I supposed to do, just play in my crib? Yeah right!
Let me start by saying that I LOVE my pediatrician, Dr. Dal Porto. HATE the nurses, LOVE Dr. Kim! When we got called back into the exam room that mean nurse came in and took my temperature (let’s not even talk about where she took it), she made me sit still on the scale, AND she pricked my big toe for a hemoglobin test…now you can see why I don’t like her, right?
I weighed 17lbs and 15 ounces – this is good, but my mommy and Dr. Kim told me that I needed to start taking in a few more calories each day so that I can get even bigger! I am a little concerned since my mommy keeps trying to feed me “big people food”. I try to spit it out and tell her that I hate it, but she is not giving up…
Bad news – my ear infection is back again. Boo! That means that I have to start taking the antibiotics again. Dr. Kim said that it’s not time for the tubes yet, but she did bring it up.
Then I fell asleep in my mommy’s arms while she finished talking to Dr. Kim (I only did that because I know how much she loves it). Just when I thought that we were going home that mean old nurse came in again – that’s never a good sign. I tried my hardest to stay asleep, but she then stuck me with 3 shots!! This is seriously not helping her likeability any!
Have a great day & remember that tomorrow is FRIDAY!!
