2 Month Apointment

Today Alice went to the pediatrician for her 2 month appointment. She has grown and extra inch this month making her 22 3/4" long and weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs 3.5 oz. She definately has this growing thing down!

Unfortunately this was also her big vaccine appointment. She got 4 shots and one oral. Two shots on each thigh. Daddy was brave to try and calm Alice while the mean ol' nurse stuck needles into my baby! I couldn't watch and sat in my chair watching Larry's back until the ordeal was over. The nurse put bright round band-aids over the injection sites, but it didn't make me like her any more. Alice cried, but not as vehemently as she had at the last appointment when she got her first shot.

In the car she promptly fell alseep - traumatized from the experience, and then took a nap with me in the TV room when we got home. Hopefully all is already forgotten by Alice, but definately won't be forgotten by her parents.

Length - 22 3/4" (75th percentile)
