6 month check up

Today was Emy's 6 month well visit. Everything went well. She is 15 lbs 2 oz and 26 1/4 inches long. She is still in the 90th percentile for height and the 24th percentile for weight. She is getting so big so fast.

So, since this was a well visit, it did include an oral vaccine and 4 shots! Isn't that insane? Anyways, she screamed as the first 3 happened. The entire time she is just staring at me screaming with tears streaming down her face and looking at me like "Mom, why aren't you doing something? Don't you love me?". Then the nurse gave her the 4th shot. This one was a doozie and poor Emerson really screamed this time. Her cry was a new one. I have never heard it so sad and heart breaking before. Unlike the past vaccine experiences, Emy did not calm down when I picked her up. She would take a pause to catch her breath and then continued crying. She cried all the way to the car. It was so sad. I could not snuggle her enough. I just stood outside the car for a few minutes rocking her before putting her in the carseat. The second we pulled out of the parking lot, she passed out.

So, today started rough, but ended great. She rebounds from stressful situations so well. As soon as she woke up from a 2 hour nap (in her crib!!!!) she was just like new. All smiles and chatter.
