2 month checkup


Chloe had her 2 month doctor's appointment yesterday. Here are her new stats: 87th percentile for length and 75th percentile for weight. She is 23.5 inches long and weighs around 12 pounds. She kept moving around while she was on the scale, so it was hard to get an accurate reading. The doctor told us that they want the wieght percentile to be less than the height, so even though Chloe seems like a chunker who eats all the time, she is doing ok! At the end of the appontment, the doctor told us that she needed to get shots. Even though I had friends before the appointment telling me good luck, I did not know that she was going to get shots! And of course Andrew had to go back to work, so I had to be brave on my own! I ran down to the pharmacy to buy baby Tylenol (they recommend giving a dose to the babies before the shots). The waiting room was full, so I was expecting to have to wait for a few hours, but after 45 minutes, the nurse called us in. Chloe got some drops and 3 shots in her thighs. She was very brave and only cried for about a minute. I was proud of myself because I did not cry! Chloe was tired and fussy for the rest of yesterday and surprised us by sleeping through the night last night! 13 hours of sleeping! She still sleeps in her swing and we know that we are going to have a rough time breaking her of it, but it is wonderful to be able to sleep through the night with a 2 month old! I did take pictures of Chloe's appointment, but I cannot figure out how to get the pictures off my new camera. I will have to have Andrew help me later! (Andrew to the rescue... photo is now up as you can see!!)

Good job being brave Mom! There's pretty much shots at every appointment from here on in... just to warn you. But they get easier and easier!
