Today we went to the doctor for Eóin's 6 month check-up. We had an excruciatingly long wait in (over and hour) in the waiting room. They was an 8 month old girl there too and both of them started getting antsy so we let them play together on the floor for a while (which involved the little girl trying to steal Eóin's toy even though she had the exact same one and Eóin just watching her crawl around).
When we finally made it into the office we saw the nurse for a few minutes and then waited AGAIN. Then we saw the doctor - after which we waited AGAIN. Then she came back to tell me about the shots he would get. Then we waited AGAIN. Finally the nurse came in and gave Eóin 4 very sore shots. THey did not have the cool fast needles for kids here. He did so well until the last one when he let out an almighty holler! Who could blame the kid - he missed nap time and it was dangerously close to lunch time!!!
After all was said and done we were in the office for just over 2 and a half hours! We did find out though that he is a big healthy boy. He now weighs almost 20 pounds (way off the charts) and is 26 1/2 inches long. I was worried I was feeding him too much but the doc said he eats just right and he is just a big strapping healthy lad. What more could I ask for :-) (Except a shorter wait at the doctor's office )
