Two Month Appointment


Elizabeth had her two month appointment this morning. I dressed her nicely for those dreaded vaccinations. I think I cried more than she did. You don't know how much I despise pumping her body full of all those viruses. I don't care if they are dead viruses, I still hate it. I always have this nagging thought that my kid might be one of the half percent of babies who has a deadly reaction to it so appointment day stresses me.


But anyway. Elizabeth appears healthy. She weighs ten pounds, ten ounces and is 22 inches long. I appeared to be quite the idiot regaling tales of all day screaming fits and refusals to nurse while Elizabeth smiled and cooed and put on her best happy sweet baby routine for the doctor. She didn't even cry when they poked her with all four of those needles. Jab her with a sharp stick, nothing. Look at her funny, scream for hours. Whatever. But Adam, man Adam is such a sweet kid. He sat up there the whole time with his sister during those shots holding her hand, rubbing her belly, and kissing her head. He's just so empathetic. I swear he'll end up a doctor himself someday because he's always trying to help everyone.

Well, of COURSE she was sweet! It's all part of that make-my-mommy-look-like-a-loony plan. And Adam sounds like the sweetest little thing.

Mine would do the same thing. I'd tell them all about the screaming fits all the while my kid would be sleeping soundly in my arms. They do that to us on purpose.
She is such a doll :)

Of course she wouldn't scream at the doctor's office!! That's funny! Adam sounds like a sweet big brother.

Elizabeth is one very beautiful baby. I'm glad she's being happy. the age of 2 months can be a developmental turning point and I really hope she stays happy!

I miss having babies so much. Please snuggle your baby girl's neck for me? My kids are 16 and 18 and they don't let me do that anymore. :)
