And not the fun kind! Kelsey and Drew (finally) had their 4 year appt and there were 3 vaccines! :( I wasn't really concerned because they had done so well in the past with shots but then Dr. Amy tells me that this last MMR can really be a doozy. Awesome. Thanks for telling me now. No tears from Kels and Drew screamed once and then was okay. They both drove home with Craig and he got out of the truck hurriedly saying something about how the kids aren't feeling well. Drew asked for a puke bucket and then fell asleep. Kelsey was sensitive hot mess. She had a fever, threw up, and didn't eat for almost 24 hours. I was bumming a little because Saturday was gorgeous and Kelsey had no energy or motivation to do anything. I planned a picnic at our local little playground and she finally came around. She's been a little more sensitive than normal but overall has recovered. No more shots til they're 10!
Otherwise the appt was routine. They had a hearing and eye test; no problems there. They talked Dr. Amy's ear off and followed all of her directions. Kelsey is still on the taller side for the growth charts. Drew was in about the 25th percentile for ht and wt and is smaller compared to his boy classmates. Kels weighs 4 more pounds and is about an inch taller than Drew!
|This was her first time eating since the shots. I pulled out all the food and she looked at me and said, "mom, this is just perfect." Sweetheart.|

|The summer farmer's market is open! They love the popcorn.|
|It was too good a deal to pass up. New in the box, a co-worker of Craig's was moving and didn't have the yard space for it. The kids love playing on their friend's, so we thought why not.|
