A Potato Throwing Event

Sophia has spent the last 10 minutes throwing potatoes into the bathtub. It's fairly entertaining. Boom! Boom! Boom! While she tosses them in, she sings a little song as she goes back and forth between the cabinet where she got the potatoes and the bathtub.

She woke up yesterday making the sign for cookie. I said, "Well, we can't have cookies for breakfast. How about a banana?" I made the sign for banana and she made the sign back! She also has started singing "Daddy" which is no surprise.

Today she has a well-baby checkup, which I am dreading. The last two (at least the last two) trips have been grim. She cries anytime someone comes into the room. The examination is done with her in my arms. That part is ok, but the crying is traumatic. She is due for a shot today and I am paranoid, more so than usual, of side effects, given that she has already had a seizure. She has never even had a fever from a vaccine, neither of them has had any sort of reaction, but I worry anyway.

I hope it goes well. I worried excessively about the MMR because the LSB is so oddly verbal and word-oriented that I has concerns about the whole autism spectrum risk thing (although she's so deeply attached to people that such concerns were pretty silly), but the only real problem we had was that she ended up being mildly allergic to an inactive ingredient and getting a skin rash and then, a week or so later, got a mild measles-like reaction. It was weird.

Some of those inactive ingredients are sort of O_o sounding as in "can that really go in a human body?" (I'm thinking of formeldehyde). I am glad she is ok! The MMR is one I worry about as well.
