Mia had a rough 12 month check up. Poor girl. She had to get shots and her blood drawn to check iron levels. It took me and 3 nurses to hold her down to draw blood 😥. Also, I had noticed over the last couple months that when she was walking behind something, she was dragging her left foot and standing on the top of it (ouch), so i mentioned it to her doctor and she looked at it and decided it definitely needed to be checked out. We have an appt with an orthaepedic at Shriners April 11th. I am praying and hopeful that it will just be an easy fix. With this news, the shots, and the blood work, I was emotionally overwhelmed by the end of this appt. I got back in the car and the tears started flowing 😭. It's tough being a parent!!! They called later that day to inform me that her iron was low. I was thankful when that day was over!
This girl loves slides!!!!
