I was missing the doctor

You know, since I was used to seeing the doctor once a week, going 2 weeks without an appointment seemed like too long so I went today 😛

I’ve been having terrible heartburn and stomach aches since the last couple weeks in my pregnancy so I went in to see my doctor about it. He gave me some medicine. (how many different medicines have I taken in the past 7 weeks? A lot!)

I took my kids with me because I’m a glutton for punishment, I guess. They were their usual insane selves. Brooklyn is such a spaz. I did this personality test online for her (I may have blogged about this already) and her results were under the description “performer”. Oh how true that is! She is the EXACT opposite of me in almost every way. Certainly makes life interesting.

Payson was actually the best behaved out of the 3. lol
He just hung out on my lap or in his carseat the whole time. He didn’t like hanging out in his carseat for more than 5 minutes, but that was all I needed to get examined.
Here he is in the waiting room. I think he looks JUST like my dad in this picture!

The girls always want to be weighed. They love hearing their numbers.

Sierra’s 24 lbs and Brooklyn’s 42. I weighed Payson and he’s just over 13 lbs.

Brooklyn is totally in love with Payson. I can’t say it enough- she’s just completely in love.

He likes her, too. Though she startles him quite a bit. I keep telling her if she just talks and sings to him calmy he’ll watch her face and smile a lot more.

But she likes to put her face rightnexttohis and he hates that. She also gets all crazy, in typical Brooklyn fashion, and he doesn’t like the craziness so he looks away and starts to fuss. But when she’s calm, he adores her back.

Seriously, he looks just like my dad and I LOVE it. I so should’ve named him John. lol

I had to get blood drawn to check for an ulcer.
The woman drawing my blood asked Brooklyn what her name was and then later she asked her what Sierra’s name was.
Brooklyn had been staring off into space (for a change) and absent-mindedly mumbled something that sounded like cereal. The woman started laughing, “your sister’s name is Cereal?!”.

Brooklyn snapped out of her daze and realized what she’d said and started laughing hysterically. I mean, totally uncontrollable laughter. The woman at this point was laughing just as hard as Brooklyn. It was so funny I started laughing at them laughing. Sierra, who had been sitting in her usual manner sucking her thumb, started laughing, too.

It was the most random, silliest thing, but we all just sat there laughing and then laughing more at each other laughing. Crazy to laugh so hard (the ugly laugh, you know the kind?) with a complete stranger.
