Avery had her 9month checkup yesterday. 23.5 lbs!!!!! 29 1/2" !!!!! (thats about 1.5" in 3 months. MY BIG GIRL! the nurse told us that there were no shots to be had!!!!!! I started to pack it all up and leave when the nurse had to chace after me to say that No, DR.Bronstein was still going to see Avery (I'm such a dork...I just hate being at the Doctors) Avery was so still and big eyed and opened mouth during the investigation er, examination I mean. she just watched the doctor and responded to the game of hide and seek DR. B was playing with her....even the doc said avery's wheels were turning in her head watching where the stethescope was moving too.
bad news to follow the good news of no shots : we had to take Avery up to the blood lab and get jammed with a needle in her chubby baby arms. she was sooooo good even with the two nurses squeezing and pulling on her little arm. Avery only cried when she was jabbed with the needle untill they had drained enough out of her. the nurses were so creepy....I dont know what it is with Blood/needle techs. but everyone i have ever encountered must have a dark soul or something. the nurse jabbing avery(the white one) I guess was trying to distract an already scared baby by GROWLING!?! it even scared me when she started....I mean I literally jumped and avery was sitting on my lap and suddenly this nurse starts growling like a huge hungry dog and Averys eyes stare up at this woman as if to say: you are already hurting my arm, please dont be vocally abusive. WHAT the HELL was this woman thinking? to distract a child that is upset with aggresive vocal tones? I repeat....ALL blood draining nurses have a darkside and I dont care for them one bit. WHy do these folks turn to healthcare or is it their profesion that turn them evil?
