Miss Bailey went to the doctor today for her check-up and she weighed in at 20 pounds, 10 ounces and she was 28 inches long... Landing her in the 50th percentile for both categories. When I get a few minutes I'll have to search back and look at how she compares to her sisters. I know they weighed pretty close to that at a year.
Her ears were clear today, which I was thankful for! However, I wasn't all that surprised or excited because she's been on a high dose of antibiotic for the last week, along with ear drops twice a day. Nonetheless, she's not in pain so I'm happy about it.
I am a bit discouraged, however, because now the doctor wants her to go see an eye specialist. She squints out of her right eye when she's trying to focus. The doctor wants us to go have it checked out to make sure that her eyesight isn't impaired. Goodness gracious. Does it ever end with this poor littlest girl of mine?
On an unrelated note, I have been having incredible, horrible pain while nursing Bailey for the past 3 days or so... So much to the point that I get tears in my eyes whenever she eats. It's been awful. I went to the doctor today, after feeling a million times worse overnight and as it turns out, I have mastitis. I was running a fever of 101 and had no idea and other than the horrible pain, I really haven't felt THAT awful... I've just had a perpetual headache and have been extremely, extremely exhausted. Now we know why! The doctor says that the antibiotics should fix me in a couple of days... In the mean time it's going to be rough. Yikes! Bailey is absolutely worth it, though, and I would do anything to be able to nurse her for as long as she wants to go.
So that's the latest around here! Now that John works days (YAY!!), I don't have loads of free time in the evening to blog... And trust me, I'm NOT complaining:-) I love that man so much!
