After much rigamarole with our old pediatricain, our new pediatrician approved us immediately for a second season of RSV shots. H and I were very glad, mostly for Mazie's sake, as she is still such a little being. We were so happy with our level of illness their first year. We feel like a lot of it was staying in, but we believe the shots contributed to our good health too.
So today, our wonderful nurse Karen came to weigh the babes for their second month of shots. She is great, very kind and proficient. Lucia, Elliott, and Mazie love her, except when she has the needle in her hand. This year the babies have to get two shots each month. This, coupled with their much greater awareness, makes administering the shots a significant ordeal--for the babes, Nurse Karen, and me. Next week they will get their second shot of the season.
Here are the weights from today. The babies are 14 months and 1 week. In parentheses are their weights from our pediatrician visit (10/15) one month ago.
Lucia: 19# 15 oz (19# 11 oz, +4 oz)
Elliott: 22# 12 oz (21# 14 oz, +14 oz)
Mazie: 17# 5 oz (16# 13 oz, +8 oz)
Thanks Nurse Karen for helping us to stay well.
