We arrived home from our appointment between 11:30am and 12:00pm. Liv immediately went down for a nap because she missed her morning one due to the time of her appointment....and she's still sleeping! I just went to check on her because I am getting bored, but 3+ hours later my baby is still passed out. She got stuck twice today and the nurse informed me before she gave her the MMR, that it stung and she even shouted when she got stuck with hers (thanks lady). Liv was pretty upset, she screams at the top of her lungs and her face get pitch red. Right after the needles were done and I could pick her up, the screaming stopped. She, unfortunately, is like her mother and gets all blotchy so she stayed visibly upset for awhile.
Dr. Mackie said she is doing great and is actually thinning out a little. She said her weight/height is a little closer to the curve this time. He didn't give me her percentages, but here are her stats:
Height: 31 in.
Weight: 27.8 lbs
Head Circ.: 18 in.
Doesn't anyone else feel like once a baby is able to stand they should measure their height on a standing scale like normal people? I ask this because when Liv and I went to the ER, they measured her against the wall and I just thought wow, thats way more accurate than stretching her little leg while she resists with all her might. What do I know though.
In other news, our immigration process is trucking along. I am waiting on a call back about urgent processing for Liv's application so we can get her an Alberta Healthcare card. I also made an appointment to get my medical exam. I'm not exactly thrilled with how much it costs, but we have no choice. I am also going to the police station this week because I also need a background check and some other things (not 100% sure what yet). But, the first step is Pat getting his sponsorship application going, which was done this week, so we have one check on our list and I feel like I've made some progress with everything the last couple days. It seems all so overwhelming if you look at the big picture, but baby steps right?.
