Abbey's 1 Year Appointment

Now that Abbey is a big 1-year old, it was time to go see the doctor again...which Abbey hates!! She started to scream as soon as we started to put her on the scale and didn't really stop until all doctors or nurses had left the room. She starts to shake because she is so scared and crying so hard - poor thing! But, it must be done! She weighed in at 20 lbs 8 oz and was 28.5 inches tall, which put her in the 30th percentile (which is pretty consistent with how she has been all along). Still a little peanut to us as Ben has always been in the 75-85 percentile! Unfortunately, Abbey has been under the weather recently and although I took her to the doctor on Monday and they thought she was fine, she has apparently gotten worse and now has an ear infection. Plus, she has had a rash for almost 2 weeks now (another reason I had taken her in on Monday). So the doctor prescribed some ointment for that. So, we left with 2 perscriptions and an appointment to come back in 3 weeks to get checked again. The only benefit of that was that they didn't give her any shots at this appointment because they wanted her to be well first. The bad news is we have to take her back for another traumatizing appointment in 3 weeks and hopefully get shots then (meaning she will hopefully be better by then and can get them). Between screaming her head off and spending a long time at the store waiting to get the prescriptions, Abbey was exhausted and is currently headed into hour 3 of an incredible power nap! Rest up and get better baby girl!

If she's like that for her appointments, how does she act around Katherine's brother and dad?
