I took A to the doctor today for her 6 month check up. Somehow, even though this is the 3rd time around, I failed to realize she needed to go in at 4 months and get shots. So now we are playing catch up. Oh well. Really, she did see the doctor when she was 4 months. A couple of doctors actually. But that had more to do with her broken arm than her age....

So I was talking to the Doc about sleep because.... well, I'd like a little more of it. We chatted for a few minutes. Why is it that even though the doc was super nice and offering suggestions and being helpful, I still felt like a child? There is something about the relationship between Doc and patients that makes me want to smile meekly and say, "Yes, ma'am. No, ma'am. Yes, ma'am." and my doc is seriously nice!
Anyway, the appointment progressed to the point where doc checked in A's ears. "Oh. Well, this could explain some of why she isn't sleeping through the night." Yup. Infections in both ears. One is bulging and the graphic (from the wall poster I'd been studying while waiting for the doc) looks terrible. The other just has some fluid behind it. Now I'm really feeling super. But honestly, how am I supposed to know?
The fever? didn't have one....
Ear pulling? wasn't happening....
Uncontrollable crying? only once in the middle of the night.... once people!
General crankiness? nope
Runny nose? yes, but it's been accompanied with much gnawing of stuff and excessive drooling. Plus we've all had colds.
So basically, I have the best baby ever. She can have severe ear infections and still not be a bear. *sigh* so sweet.

Things that made me smile today:

  • The Pharmacy Tech with purple hair (last time he had blue...)
  • This license plate I saw on the way home: FIBRWRX seriously?? I hope they were a nutritionist.
