It was supposed to be a simple well check

My sweet little Finn turns 6 months old today and I am so thankful that he is our little guy.  He is quick with a smile and is seriously the happiest baby I have ever had, so glad that he joined our family!

Since Finn was 6 months today I scheduled his well check at the doctor.  This morning, Teagan woke up with a horrible rash on her face, it seriously looked like we had put out lit cigarettes on her little face and she has a viral looking rash on her body (moms totally know what I mean here-spotty but flushed red rash).  Called and added her to the appointment to kill two birds with one stone and they asked that we come at 10:10 instead of we did and of course we weren't brought back until after 10:30 *sigh*

So they did Finn's height/weight/head and he was 75%/10%/75% so I knew the doc was going to be unhappy with his weight.  The thing is, he eats a ton, he pees a ton, he looks great, fat cheeks and a long lean, but healthy, body.  He is also not the first baby of mine to have those kinds of stats, but of course the ped was unhappy and wants him back in six weeks to see his weight, although I am not sure why since I am not supplementing him since he is doing great other than their chart.  They also noticed his one hip clicks and it is the one he doesn't favor so we will be getting an x-ray Monday and we still need to take him to the cardiologist.  *double sigh*

Teagan decided to wail the entire time we were there and after testing her, we discovered she has strep.  Being that the other two girls have complained about a sore throat, I have them heading in tomorrow to be checked.  This could totally screw up the plans for tomorrow which included a trip to Ikea, Old Navy and a birthday party for Haven to attend.  Then after the 1 1/2 hours at the pediatrician, I  had to take my sleepy baby and wailing toddler to the grocery store to get a few things for tonight's dinner, and yes Teagan wailed the whole time.  *triple sigh*

Really hoping the day turns around!

Ugh! Sounds like a rough trip, and a rough couple of days! I hope everyone is feeling better soon. Thank goodness it is the weekend.

I will be thinking of you and your family & sending prayers.
