Today we took both of our girls to the doctor. I was so nervous because I knew both of them would be getting shots. We make such a scene every time we go! But it wasn't as bad as I thought.
They checked Kaylee's vision, and it's 20/30! They had her look at a chart with shapes. She was so cooperative! Also, they did a color test, and no, she is not colorblind. She was so brave up until she had to pull her pants down for the shot. But when it was done, she perked right up and gave us all high-fives. The doctor gave her a book, so he scored some points with her!

Brenna did awesome for her checkup. She was grabbing the doctor's fingers and smiling away at him! She even laughed when he felt her abdomen! She was fascinated with all the lights and equipment. But she started crying when she got the oral vaccine, and then cried so hard she was blue when she got her 3 shots! Poor baby! When we got home I gave her some tylenol, and it didn't seem to help a whole lot. She just cries and cries! She has been nursing every 2 hours ever since then...comfort food I guess! The doc said that she can start on solids any time since she's holding her head up so well and acting interested in food. SAD! She's growing up too fast! I am going to wait at least another month, though. I just can't do it. Not yet.

I know, apparently she has a huge knoggin, just like her sister. Kaylee was always upper 90s!
Well, I wish we could say we were done for the year. Kaylee has an MRI next month and Brenna will have more shots in 2 months. :(
So stay tuned for more 'Doctor' drama from the Bringhurst family! (I know, I know, I don't really have anything to complain about. My girls are at least very healthy.)
