I always take the rest of the day off after Sydney's check-ups that include shots. I don't like the idea of taking her back to daycare after she's stuck with needles, and truth be told, I like having a fun afternoon with her so she's reminded that just because mommy took her to the doctor, mommy is still mostly good :-) She only cried for about 30 seconds, and the doc (as always) said she is as healthy as can be. 16 lbs. 9 oz. healthy - 60th percentile! He was quite impressed with her sitting up during most of the appointment and her typical cheery demeanor.
Here she is, happy to be home.
