So, Cate had her 4 month check up today, and all things are looking good. She is still above the 75th percentile in all charts, and is very healthy. She may have to have a look at the "flat head" or plagiosephaly specialist because her head is not quite rounding out, but the doctor said it was nothing to be concerned about. Then she had to haver her shots. Mommy gave Daddy the pleasure of holding Cate's little quivering hands as she screamed and wailed on the doctor's table with 4 more booster shots. It's rough, experiencing your child's pain empathetically. I didn't know how much I'd be affected, but I was nervous for her, just sitting in the waiting room. Thankfully, she slept for about an hour after the
shot, and pretty much forgot it ever happened. In fact, mommy had some fun with her before she headed to bed, and Cate let out the cutest little giggle. She's only done it a few times, but it made me melt. Here's to living our lives as a worship to God.
