Liam's well-visit

Ironic, Liam wasn't well for his well-visit to his pediatrician this morning. He's had a cold for weeks now. He started whining the minute we walked off the elevator. Then we got into the exam room, it got worse.

He knew what we were up to.

We had to strip him down for the big weigh in. 22 lbs! After taking his other measurements, we let him down to play on the kid size chairs he had his eyes on. According to the wiggly measurement, he hasn't grown in height.



When Dr. Wynn came in, he was his regular bubbly sweet self! Liam didn't want to have anything to do with him though. Ian and I took turns holding Liam through the exam. He wouldn't calm down. Then it was time for the shots. I was so glad Ian was there with us. I think it helps that Liam sees both of us during yucky experiences like this. The poor kid.

He has a very suspious look like I know this ain't good. What did you get to give him some relief for his cold?

He's such a cutie! Dr visits are never too much fun.

Oh poor Liam! Maybe he remembers shots from last time so that's why he had a hard time. Hopefully, he didn't get any swelling from the shots. That is so hard for the little ones! He looks so sweet! :)

Poor guy- Kaden is going to get one of those next month and I am not looking forward to it at all. Hopefully I can make the appointment early enough in the morning so Matt can come too. It is much easier that way! and better for him- I agree with you.

what shots? Sierra doesn't have anymore shots until she's 24 months.

22 lbs! Doesn't that mean he gets to turn around in the car seat? Or has he already been big enough to do that? I'm new at all this Mom stuff, can you tell?
My babies are going in for shots tomorrow too. :( At least DJ is going with me this time.
