My poor sweet angel went to get shots today. I think she went into some kind of spasm or something because she was shaking all over. It was soo horifying. I feel so bad. I hate to get shots myself. She was so worked up that I just let her sleep through her 6PM feeding. She can make it up in the morning. (Hopefully not too early)|
Her new measurements are:
Age: 6 months and 9 days
Weight: 15 3/4 lbs (50th percentile)
Height: 26 1/4 in (75th percentile)
She's long and lean. She's in the 25th percentile for height and weight ratio. That's really weird for a couple of reasons. One, she is bottle fed. Two, both her parents are average height and a little chubby. But Brandon's birth mother (he is adopted) was a petit girl, so maybe she got some of those genes.
She got a flu shot too, and needs a booster next month. Then she doesn't need another shot until 9 months. Gee wiz, why do babies get so many shots. How did babies in the olden days fend off disease? Maybe that's one of the reasons people had 12+ children back then.
