Growing up!

Gabriella and Ahnya had shots on Tuesday! Gabriella had to get her kindergarten shots...5 shots in the thighs and a finger prick to top it off!!!!! Thank goodness Ryan was there to stand by the other girls because it took all I had to HOLD HER DOWN during the shots! Oh, she mad and crying. I had to physically lay down on Ms. Gabriella and hold her so the nurse could give her the vaccinations. Almost momentarily when the shots were done and the nurse say "ok Gabriella, that's it you're done," she snapped back into the sweet child we all know and love and said "thank you nurse, it was a piece of cake!"
I couldn't be in the room when Ahnya had her shots, so Ryan held her and she just had 3 in her chubby little thighs. 3 too many!
Dr. Mishra is our pediatrician and we love him. He picked her up and said "Oh, this is your biggest baby yet!" Another favorite comment that he said was "You don't have worry anymore about her being malnourished because she's definately full!" Ahnya has gained 6 pounds in the last 9 weeks of being home! She's came home not being able to sit up by herself and had RSV and lung infections to now being a plump, happy, 19 pound baby who loves people, life and her bottle!
