Miss Tallia had her two month check up yesterday and boy was that an adventure. As we pulled up to the doctor's office, it started raining....like a down pour of buckets of rain. I couldn't believe how quickly it came on.
Keagan and Libby got out first and made a bee line for the awning by the office's front door. I shortly followed. I only had one blanket with me, but I wanted to cover the baby in her seat. I ended up using my nursing cover. It kept her mostly dry.
Once we got into the office, paperwork needed to be filled out. Tallia woke up then crying. She wanted to nurse...oh and she had filled her diaper. In a matter of 30 minutes she filled her diaper twice, so that was taken care of in-between filling out paper.
On one occasion, when I went to change her, I had to wait for someone to get out of the handicap stall. That is where the changing table was located. I had to wait for some woman to get off her phone. She was literally on her phone in the stall, as I stood with my screaming baby. Finally she finished her business and got off the phone, but she did not exit the stall quickly...or in any kind of timely manner. She stood in the doorway texting, oblivious to the crying child in my arms. Finally she looked up and it registered that I needed the stall. Oh gosh I was a stressed out mama by then.
Libby and Keagan were such a sweet blessing to me during all of this. I was definitely feeling overwhelmed. Libby helped me get Tallia changed and Keagan carried the car seat and diaper bag. They were an answer to a silent prayer.
We finally got settled in the waiting room, so I started nursing. Not five minutes after I started nursing, they called us back. Poor baby was not happy I had to cut the feed short. This is when brother Bear came out of Keagan. He was too funny, saying Tallia had to eat right now because she was hungry and babies shouldn't have to wait. I had a little glimpse into their future relationship. I have a feeling any future boyfriends will have to go through big brother first. It warms my heart seeing the love my boy has for his sister's.
Once we got back to a room, the nursing was able to continue. We met with two of the greatest doctors. They were so laid back and you could just tell they love their job. That's what you want in a physician.
Miss Tallia was weighed and came in at 12 lbs 11 oz. She was also measured. She is 24 inches long now. Boy my baby has grown.
Baby girl also got her two month shots, which was heartbreaking. I haven't heard Miss Tallia cry that hard. Once we calmed her down and she nursed for a good twenty minutes, she feel asleep. She spent most of the night sleeping and nursing. My sweet baby needed that extra comfort and rest after the whole ordeal. Thankfully the next day she was back to her old self. No fever or discomfort, like I thought she might have.
The past two months have flown by. We are so thankful for this little sweet pea. She has brought so much joy into our family :)
