2 Month Check-Up

Yesterday we had Keira's two month well-check. I had been nervous about this one for quite a while since she was going to be getting 3 shots. We got there and they measured her and weighed her. Here are her new stats...

Weight: 9 pounds 11 ounces (10-25%)
Length: 22 inches (25-50%)
Head: 14 1/2 inches (5%)

So she's pretty much tall and skinny. Dr. Lincoln says that she is growing really well and looks good. She still has the infection in her mouth, so we started a new medicine yesterday that will hopefully get rid of it. Fingers crossed!

After that, we painfully waited for the nurses to come and give her the shots. When they came in, Stephen put ehr down on the table and we both got really close to her to talk her through it. She got two shots in her left leg and one in the right. I felt so bad for her and her not so chunky thighs! The scream when they stuck her every time was just terrible, but the cry after it was all over was even worse. I cried with her. Its like she was just trying to tell me that they really hurt her. Poor baby. We both snuggled and snuggled her for the longest time. After she voived her opinion on shots, she fell asleep in her car seat and we came home. We gave her some baby tylenol for the pain and she was fine after that. She ate normally and slept just like usual, 10:00-6:45.

So we survived. She doesn't go back until September for her 4 month. She will get get the same shots that she got this time. And yes, I am already dreading it.

It hurts you jsut as bad as it hurts them...they hurt in the leg and you hurt in the heart. I'd like to say it gets easier, but it doesn't. When she's older she'll look at you like you're a traitor. That's why I have Aaron hold them during and I hold them after. He gets to be the bad guy and I'm the savior! Mean....I know. Keep the tylenol ready. At the 6 mth ones, you can use works better! Love ya skister!
