Doctor Appointments!

I picked the kids up from school an hour and a half early today for a vaccination appointment Payson had. I had to pick all three up early since I wouldn’t have made it home to get the girls from the bus.
I delayed Payson’s vaccinations when he was a baby because of all his health stuff and started getting his shots on a more spaced out time frame when he was 2 1/2. So he has two more shots (total) and he’ll be fully immunized!

Today was his third hep B (next month is his last) and then he has one more dtap (I think!) but the doctor says he has to wait until January for that one. And then he’s done!!

Payson was not excited about getting a shot (though both his big sisters LOVE having them done!) and was relieved to hear it was only one. Last time we went (a month ago) it was four shots!  photo 003eresized_zps72002a13.jpg

He was funny immediately hopping up on the table and then laying down for the exam he thought he was having. (The appointment was with the nurse only and only for a shot.)  photo 008eresized_zps1fba0e1b.jpg photo 010eresized_zps9852d6e5.jpg

In the waiting room Brooklyn had been trying to get Ember to sit on her lap but Ember had refused, wanting to stay with mommy or on mommy’s lap. In the exam room Brooklyn asked her again if she wanted to sit on her lap and when Ember said yes she was pretty happy about it.  photo 013eresized_zps9dac52ad.jpg photo 014eresized_zpsa4089b29.jpg

Payson goofed off until the nurse came in. And he did really well with his shot. It took a split second and he laughed about how nervous he’d been since it was over before he’d realized it’d begun!  photo 018eresized_zps151113e2.jpg

I had a OBGYN appointment next. The kids, Payson mostly, were bouncing off the walls and loud and it was really annoying! I was having a hard time talking to my doctor and it was an important conversation! I’m glad that the rest of my appointments are when the kids are in school!  photo 023eresized_zps09372bd7.jpg

These were taken when we’d just got into the room. Payson pretty much refused to sit still on the bench the rest of the time no matter what I said! (Ember was digging through my purse for a lollipop, I didn’t have any left)  photo 028eresized_zps8d0151b4.jpg

Next we went to Fry’s grocery store because we were seriously OUT of food. We needed stuff for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks!! Our fridge was bare and our pantry had only a few random things like tortilla chips and boxed mac and cheese.  photo 030eresized_zpsb474eb55.jpg

The kids were actually pretty decent in the store, thank goodness! I did NOT want to shop (I was like, fall to the floor tired!) and if they’d have been acting up (like they usually do) I think I would have been… more tired. haha  photo 032eresized_zpse3e72678.jpg photo 033eresized_zps6d8148ff.jpg photo 036eresized_zps6db02d31.jpg

I was going to take just that one group shot of us a few pictures up but the kids insisted on taking a dozen more silly shots. They were in good moods!  photo 040eresized_zpsd4b00b2f.jpg photo 041eresized_zpsa6ef7c42.jpg photo 051eresized_zpseca92a98.jpg photo 052eresized_zps810cee41.jpg photo 054eresized_zps37ed8e4d.jpg
