Needles & Thumbs

18 Sep

Poor T~ was stuck 5 times today. She’s still catching up on her immunizations so she had 3 shots & then we had to do a blood draw. Unfortunately the first stick of the blood draw didn’t produce so she had to be stuck again. She was not a happy camper.

T~ weighs in at 18lbs, 14oz & is 27.75 in long. She’s at 50% on both growth charts. People still comment on how small she is, but I think it’s just because we’re so used to seeing big babies, an average sized baby looks small.

Beware Thumbsuckers! E~ is now the not-so-proud owner of a $900 dental appliance. He has a large overbite that’s affecting his in-coming teeth & his breathing. He was excited about the appliance at first, but he’s now realized it’s uncomfortable to wear at night. Most nights I find it on the floor. Now he has to wear it when he’s awake. I’m trying to have him wear it during homework time & when he reads quietly to himself. It’s becoming quite a chore. Unfortunately T~ is a thumbsucker too. I think we’ll try harder to get rid of that habit before she’s 4.5.
