This is a blog post where I catch up on all the stuff we have done in the last week or so.
We started last week with 2 and 4 year old check-ups. Both girls are very healthy. The bad part of the check-up was that Hadley had to get 4 shots. Jillian didn't have to get any this time which made the 4 Hadley got that much harder. First let me just say that I am getting paid back for the horrible time I gave my mom when I had to get shots. I actually remember running away from a nurse in the ER once when I needed a tetanus shot. I think the crying about shots started for Hadley on Sunday when she overheard me tell Mike that they had check-ups on Monday. She did great throughout the whole appointment until the nurse walked in with they syringes. Then she went crazy. You might think I am exaggerating but I am not. She was like a koala bear hooked on to me and the nurse had to help me pry her off and lay her on they table. Then each time we tried to lay her down she would pop back up. All of this while she is screaming at the top of her lungs. While this is happening Jillian is crying because she is scared and I can't hold her. Hadley is screaming so loud that another nurse comes in to help. She ends up taking Jillian down the hall to calm her down. We finally get the shots done and the screaming is over. Now starts the whining that her legs don't work and she needs me to carry her. At one point she asked if her daddy was going to bring her a wheel chair when he came home from work. I didn't know if I could keep from laughing when she said that. Her legs didn't work for a few hours and then she would forget about it for awhile. I think she is fully recovered now :) Good thing no more shots until Fall when it is flu shot time. I think I might pay for her Child Life Specialist aunt and uncle to come and take her to that appointment.
Later in the week the girls we able to enjoy the warm weather and play outside. One of those days it was actually very hot and humid so we decided it was a good day for a popsicle.
