Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

River was scheduled to have his 6 month WBV yesterday at 10. At 9 am we get a call from the doctors office *the same one he has had since Birth* saying that they don't take the type of insurance we have so they have to cancel. We asked if we could pay out of pocket and they will not accept cash because we have insurance. How fucked up is that?? So because they decided not to tell us until an hour before his appointment we don't get to get his appointment done today.. I am BEYOND pissed. We are calling the doctor that they say he HAS to see even though we've never even heard of the doctor before an our lives. Whatever.. I hate being poor
So we took him to the other pediatrician so that we could continue the same shot schedule that we are on until we could get stuff straightened out with the insurance.. which I did. The pediatrician was awful.. never asked us any questions about the baby or anything just did his measurements and gave him a small physical and shots and send us on our way.. we won't need to go back there though because we get to start going to his regular pediatrician again WOOO HOOO. So he weighed River at 19 1/2 lbs and 27 inches.. didn't sound right to me so I called his normal pediatrician and they let us bring River in to be weighed and measured on the scale that we normally have him on. His official measurements are:
Weight : 18 lbs 10 (50th %)
Height : 26 3/4 inches (50th %)
Head: 17 inches (25th %)
We'll see his normal pedi on the 7th of September to discuss how he is developing and when we are going to challenge him on the formula. We'll make his 9 month appt then.
