William had his 1 year doctor appointment today. Wowsers. I'm very relieved it's over. He weighed in at a whopping 19.1 pounds, so he's in the 6%, up from 4% at 10 months. Yeah! He's in the 75% for length and head, being 32 inches long. He's tall and skinny. :-)
The nurse then gave him 6 (six, seis) shots. Yes, you read correctly. 6. 2 in each leg, and one in each arm. He was completely unsuspecting, babbling away, then WHAM! Screamed like a banshee. We then had to head over to the lab to get blood drawn to test for lead and anemia.
Yeeeeaaaah...that went well.
It took 3 of us to pin him down because he was flailing around so much. The nurse was awesome, finding a vein on the first try. I was so stressed I asked for a sticker!
So...we're now on Tylenol every 4-6 hours to keep the crankies and pain down.
And to top it off...he's still suffering with a cold.
