What a week!

Brody has had a busy week.
He had his 6 month appt on Wednesday. He is a big guy!!!
20lbs (80%)
27 inches (55%)
head is 17 1/2 I don't remember the %

The Dr said he is very strong and can see him crawling soon. I better get a jump on baby proofing, just in case.
He received 4 shots and did great. He cried for a few minutes but I think that was due to it being past his nap time.
Now the suckie part of Brody's wee. During his appt I spoke to the Dr regarding a concern I had with Brody. He has hair down there. So I asked her about and she was like "o Erin it is probably just peach fuzz". Then she opened his diaper and was like wow! So she sent us to go get blood drawn to check his hormone levels.
so off to the hospital we go...
Brody do as well as he could getting his blood drawn. They had 2 techs in there one to hold his arm down and the other to draw. It took a good 5 minutes to find a vein. Brody started to get cranky, he holding his and someone else holding his arm down, he was getting down right pissed. Finally they found a vein and Brody started to cry, they hadn't even poked him yet, than they did and he went ballistic! Crying screaming, but no tears, than his eyes rolled back and he was quite! I freaked out, then after what felt like forever he woke back up and screamed again. I thought they were done when they took the needle out, so I picked him up and they were like, "we didn't get enough, we need more"..! What! are you kidding me! So on to the next arm. Brody did not like this and instantly the big crocodile tears shot out from his eyes and he turned beat red.......after digging around in his arm for what again felt like for ever they finally found the vein and started the blood draw again. With in a few seconds Brody again went quite and eyes went back in his head. With in a few seconds he woke and started screaming again... My poor baby, did he pass out 2 times during this whole ordeal? I feel so helpless. Finally they were done with the draw and I picked him up and he looked at the nurse and smiled at her, cocked his head and than proceeded to puke on her! LOL that's my boy....

We are awaiting the results!

On a good note Brody saw Santa yesterday!! He did awesome!
