One thing hasn’t changed since Abby’s 18 month appointment…she still HATES going to the doctor.
You’d never know based on the couple pictures I took (see above), but the scene changed dramatically when Dr. Langston walked into the room.
Once he came in, Abby started screaming and didn’t stop until 10 minutes after her appointment. Last time, she was screaming “owie Mommy” over and over again and this time she was mixing it up between “owie Mommy,” “home Mommy,” and “go! Mommy!” – it was awful. Gosh, and to top it off this time, Mac woke up half way through the appointment and added to the screaming. Once again, you’d never know based on this picture…
The joys of parenting, right?
I’m sure everyone in the waiting room wondered what kind of torture was going on in the “purple room.” My girls have some LUNGS.
Goodness, and I was sweating like a pig. I was trying to keep my calm and be the “rock” for my little ladies, but I must have been beet red and glistening with sweat. I kept telling Abby that we were going to the Jungle Gym at the YMCA after her appointment, but she was set on screaming…so she screamed.
Luckily, everyone calmed down once we were in the car and Abby had a blast at the YMCA. Oh, and Abby has continued to sprout up…if you go with what some people say and double their height at 2, that number is how tall they’ll be when they’re done growing. With that math, we’re looking at having a 6 footer…what!? Stats below…
Oh, and on the bright side, here’s a look at her time at the YMCA 🙂
