Yesterday I took Emersyn into the Dr. I thought she might have an ear infection since she was rubbing her ear a lot but she was still sleeping through the night great so I had my doubts. Still, when that mommy instinct says to take your baby in, it is worth that $20 co-pay. It turns out, Emersyn does not have an ear infection (hooray) but she does have a cold (boo) and the start of what appears to be pink eye (BOO). I got some eye goop for her and she should be good as new in a couple days. Poor baby. Everyone at the Dr.'s office kept saying how cute she was and how happy she is, despite not feeling well. That made me happy, of COURSE!!
I did get to see her weight though, always a bonus for going to the Dr.'s. She is 18.6 lbs now...wow. That explains why my arms are sore at night! :)
I am obsessed with trying to teach Emersyn to clap. A couple babies that I know are clapping up a storm and I think Emerysn needs to join in on the fun. This means I am doing a LOT of "Patty Cake" with her and she loves it, she just looks at me and smiles like I am a nut. One of these days she is going to clap though, and I can't wait!!!
