Beck's 12-month stats

Here are Beck's 12-month stats (a week late...):
25.2 pounds (82%)
30.5 inches (76%)
19.5-inch head circ.(99%, haha)

He also had five shots, which he wasn't a big fan of but calmed down quickly. The worst part of the whole day was having to get the routine lead count test (or whatever they call it) at the hospital. Instead of the heal prick, they actually draw blood. What idiot came up with the idea to draw blood from a 12-month old?! It took three of us to hold him down, and that still barely did the job. And it took foooooorever for the blood to actually draw, probably like three minutes--and Beck was screaming the entire time. He has a purple bruise in the shape of the needle on his little hand. The only good aspect of the day is that thanks to the immunizations (I'm sure the whole drawing blood thing helped as well), he slept extremely well! If only he needed shots every day! ;) At least we have a few guaranteed good sleeping days throughout the year!

Oh, and his first birthday was great! I'll post some pics soon!

That's so sad. My kids have never had to have the lead count one done. I've never even heard of it. Did they say if it's new? I am glad he slept well for you. He is adorable!

Oh yes! I remember having to do that stupid blood drawing for Jacen. The stupid thing is that our friends with different doctors didn't have to do it for their children. I was a bit upset about this! Also, the doctor wanted us to do it again at 24 months. We are proud to say, we never did :) Oh I am NOT looking forward to doing it with Brycen, this month!

Hey! Blood draws on a child does sound like a really dumb idea!! Sorry your hospital trip was rough, but it was great seeing you!!
