2 Months

I can't believe it's already been two months! Then again I can't believe it's only been two months! It seems like Michelle has always been a part of our family, and I can't imagine life without her, but, at the same time, I'm amazed at how big she is! It feels like we just brought her home yesterday, and already she's growing out of her newborn clothes.

I remember how much she hated getting a bath, and how silly she looked when we gave her a mohawk...

Now, she's starting to like the water, and doesn't mind the mohawk as much ;) !

Good grief... I just love this little girl!

We had our two month appointment yesterday. She's getting so big! Her weight (11lbs 3oz) is up to the 50%, her height (21 1/2") is up to 25%, and her head (38cm) is still 25%. She is healthy and developmentally right on track! She has a rash under her chin so we got cream for that, and then Dr. Katz left and the nurses came in. I had been dreading this part of the appointment since we made it a month ago. She got immunized for Rotavirus (this was in a liquid that she had to drink), DTaP/Hib/IPV (those three were all in the same shot), Prevar, and her second dose of Hep B. THREE shots! Yes, I bawled right along with Michelle when they stuck her...and then again last night when she was trying to eat, but couldn't because her legs were so sore... and again when she finally fell asleep and was finally not feeling any pain. I hate shots! At her 4 month appointment she has to get two more, but this time Bryan won't be able to come with me... I'm already feeling sick about it! Honestly- it's not right to make a mom hold down their baby while they get shots! Until then, I'll try to not think about it, enjoy her smiles, and look forward to hearing her laugh for the first time!
