And, then I took it a step further. Instead of having her stuck for her blood draw at the doctor's office, I walked to Children's Hospital across the street so that they could do the honor instead. Of course, she was LMX'd again. I was rethinking my brilliant plan after sitting in the lab waiting room for over an hour, however. All in all, Maeve did great and wasn't bothered at all with the poke, or even when they were searching for her vein, over and over again (sigh)... she was bothered, however, when they had to insert the needle all the way to find the vein. But, she recovered quickly and forgave immediately.
Before I forget... Her 6 month stats:
Weight: 15 lbs 15 ounces (41st percentile)
Length: 26.5 inches (67th percentile)
Head Circumference: 44.5 cm (90th percentile)
Maeve's doctor was really pleased with how she is doing developmentally -- she is right on track. Yay Maeve.
