So, on to the past few days. Since we left Lubbock Aspen has not been sleeping. Well, she goes to sleep and then at 2:30 wakes up to stay awake for several hours. Now, we are sleep deprived parents and are usually pretty patient people but after 8 days of this I was about to go crazy and so the last night she did this I thought she was throwing a fit and I disciplined her. Well, Weds. we had her 15 month Dr. appt. to get her shots. When we get there she is totally upset and crying hysterically. I tell the Dr. that she isn't sleeping and I am about to go crazy and then he looks in her ears and says, "OHH She has a really bad ear infection IN BOTH EARS". He proceeds to tell me that she is probably not sleeping because it hurts. Well, naturally I feel like the worst mom ever for being upset with her and then of course the Dr. tells me she is cutting molars which is painful. So, after hearing all of this then he gives Aspen two shots that make her even more miserable. So, to say the least Aspen has been running fever since Weds. and is just as sweet as can be for a kid that really doesn't feel well! What is the lesson in this? I am not sure...I just wish babies could tell us how they feel! Oh her stats at her appt. were:
Weight - 21 lbs.
Height - 30 inches
Head - BIG(kidding it is just above the middle range)
Teeth - 4 in front, two on bottom, and 3 others coming in.
Walking- still only with us holding a hand. She will walk by herself occasionally but does not do it regularly
Words - LIGHT(loves to point these out), Nanny, Daddy, Ba(ball), BaBa(milk), NO NO(LOVES THIS ONE), Duck, Puppy, EYE, NOS(nose, or in Russian she actually says it right), book, BYE BYE, HEY, MIMI, LALA(Lauren), Baby(every kid but her)
Oh but the best is when we tell her to blow a kiss and instead of kissing her hand she licks it and then after that makes a kissing sound. Very gross but cute!
