Doctor's appointment confusion

Well, the four month doctor's appointment wasn't nearly as bad as I anticipated. Why? Because we showed up for the appointment a week early!

Here I've been dreading this appointment for a week, and I was all prepared for those shots.

We got up early and I dressed Little Elvis in a froggy outfit -- complete with hat -- and I drove us to the office all proud of myself for getting us there with 5 minutes to spare.

After I signed him in and got us settled, the poor receptionist came over and told me that I was early, a week early, and she couldn't squeeze us in today.

Normally something like this would really embarrass me, but I just smiled and apologized for the confusion. She wrote me another appointment card and kept apologizing. I hightailed it out of there as fast as I could with Little Elvis in his car seat.

The good news is Little Elvis and I had a really fun day without fussiness from shots, and Bob will be able to make next week's appointment. The bad news is that now I have to keep adding to my anxiety for another week. Oh well.

well, if it makes you feel any better, I was dreading Zach's 4 month appt and he did much better than I thought he would. He didn't screech as loud, and settled quickly. :)

Oh, and he's been nursing A freakin LOT lately too. He's 18 weeks this Tuesday, so maybe you're right about the growth spurt thing. :)

Of course, today - he's got a fever, but still not too bad :)

Hopefully Little Elvis won't cry too much either. It's honestly the look he gave me at his one month appointment that has me worried. He was all happy and then suddenly he was being hurt and the way he looked at me was just awful. I was behind him, holding him for the two month and handled myself much better.
