Top Three List

Tonight I present the top three things that make Sara Beth upset:

#3.  Missing the party.  I have mentioned this before, so I won't go into too much detail.  Suffice it to say, during the day, Sara Beth does not like to be put down for naps in her crib, though she will sleep just fine in her bouncer seat, as long as it is near people.

#2.  Getting her shot.  Today, Heather took SaraB for her 1 month checkup which included a shot.  Not surprisingly, She turned all red and started to cry.  Heather calmed her down quickly, but SaraB was clingy for the rest of today.  While at the doctor, Sara Beth weighed in at a respectable 10 pounds 14 ounces, so she is still gaining about a pound a week!

#1.  What could be worse than getting a shot at the doctor?  Well, for SaraB, the answer is being taken out of the bathtub.  She absolutly loves taking baths.  She kicks and splashes her feet in the water.  Heather shampos her hair.  And we pour water over her. And then, as the water gets cold, we pull her out to dry her off and get her ready for bed.  And she will cry and cry.  It takes much longer to console her about the loss of her bathwater down the drain then it does to calm her after getting stuck with a needle.  I'm looking forward to next summer when we can take her to the pool.
