1 Year Appointment...

We took Parker for her 1 year check-up today. We moved it up a week because she has started doing this weird thing with her eyes. She will be playing and then randomly roll her eyes up and back and "check out" for just a second. Then she will go right back to playing. Needless to say, this freaks me out a LOT, so we just switched the appointment. Here is basically what we learned at the world's longest doctor's visit.

1) Parker has an ear infection. What? Where did that come from? She hasn't been acting like she has an ear infection. I thought she caught my cold. I'm a good parent.

2) The bizarre eye-rolling thing COULD be a very uncommon reaction to the Benadryl that we have been giving her for her cold. I'm still holding out that she has a cold too because she is coughing. We are going to stop the Benadryl and see if it goes away.

3) My child is still a beast although her weight has slowed down. She weighed in at 23lb 2.5 oz - 75th percentile. Her height - 31.5 inches (and measured well this time - Parker was NOT squirming) - totally off the charts.

So, that's that. We're going to drug the baby up REALLY well tonight and hope that she is feeling much better by Friday for big, birthday FUN! :)

Yikes! No fun! I'm impressed that they "let" you go ahead and have the one year check-up. We took Sadie on the 3rd because she'd been throwing up, and they wouldn't even consider talking about any of the first year stuff. (Though we weren't seeing our own doctor anyway, so I didn't really want to).

But, I do sincerely hope that she is feeling MUCH better by Friday!

Krysten - We couldn't do any of the shots (because it was too early and because she has this ear infection.) But, really? What is going to be so different about her development Friday? That seems silly.

Did the eye rolling go away? If not, message me and let me know. Lydia did something similar when she was a baby.
