First Shots

Yesterday Tineke had her first two immunizations.  She was a champ.  It is so hard to see her experiencing pain for (almost) the first time.  It catches a baby so off guard.  She's just sitting there in her diaper, her soft little thighs all innocently exposed and then a job in each one and a little square bandaid.  She only cried for a minute though.  Leif and Laika played in the waiting room and got stickers for being so well behaved.

When Dr. W. put her on the scale to weigh her she peed.  She came out at 11 pounds 15 ounces, but if she hadn't peed I think she would have been an even 12.  She's is long, heavy and has a nice round head. (95%ile) She's growing really well.

At two months old I'm so proud of her.  She is such a smiley happy little thing.  She is sleeping really well in the night, she grabs toys and pulls them to her mouth, she holds her head up and she has gurgle conversations with me.  These two months have gone so fast and even when I'm really tired and grouchy I'm appreciating every single day of having this new little baby in our lives.
