Today we took Maya to the doctor to get some bloodwork done as we continue trying to figure out what foods she can and cannot eat. I was dreading it ~ vaccinations are quick and easy, one poke and you're done. With drawing blood, it's poke, then wait and wait and wait some more (to fill FOUR vials! Even I get squirmy when they have to take that much!). But, I found today that nursing a two year old has the added advantage that the blood draw was super easy! Latched her on, they did what they needed to do, and then she got a cool band-aid. Easy peasy :) Not to say that she *enjoyed* the needle being stuck in her arm, but there was no screaming or gnashing of teeth like I had anticipated (remember we are talking about a 2 year old...one who has recently discovered the awesomeness of tantrums). She even asked tonight where her "headband" was...after much guessing I figured out that she was talking about the tourniquet they put on her arm. So, apparently the situation wasn't too traumatic. And, the nurse told me that she wished *all* of her draws were that easy :D
Along with the bloodwork for Maya, we also had Charlotte's 4 month well-baby visit (a double-whammy of a day!). She is perfect of course ~ she even rolled over for the doctor to show off her mad skillz.
Here is a picture of Maya ~ she was laying down watching some Milo and Otis
