4-Month Check-Up

Adrienne had her well baby visit today and everything went great! She weighs exactly 15 pounds and is 25.5 inches long. Brooke, at 4 months, weighed slightly more at 15 pounds, 6 ounces and she was an inch longer. It's so much fun to compare the two girls for some reason!

As expected, Adrienne had to have two shots:-( Surprisingly, she only fussed for a couple of seconds with those. The roto-virus vaccine, which is given orally, was the worst for her. She hates medicine and she was gurgling and gagging on it. While it was pitiful for her, it was almost comical to watch because she was just livid about having to taste the stuff. Brooke would drink medicine if you let her but not Adrienne!

When Adrienne had her shots at 2 months of age, she took it pretty hard... She spent the whole day being grumpy and miserable. Well, today has proven to be the same thing. She screamed for about an hour straight this afternoon and has rotated between sleeping and fussing. I hope that my normal Adrienne returns in the morning. One can hope, right?

It was so cute because Brooke was in the doctor's office with us and we kept telling her that the doctor would give her a lollipop if she behaved for Adrienne's appointment. He's so good with the kids and he is always giving them lollipops! Anyways, he was looking over Adrienne and Brooke was just staring at him with this enormous smile on her face. In his thick Indian accent, the doctor asked Brooke if she would like her lollipop and she gave him this face like, "I thought you were never going to ask." Lol! It was priceless. I wish I had had our camera or something! No, it doesn't take much to make Brooke happy!

Alrighty, I've got some work to do around the house. I just wanted to rave about my healthy little girls! :-)
