Well Baby Appointment

Chloe had her two-month check up today. She fell asleep on the way there so ended up being rudely awakened by having a rectal thermometer shoved up her hiney. Poor thing screamed like a banshee! Her weight is 10 pounds, 5 3/4 ounces which puts her in the 50th percentile. Her length is 22 1/4 inches which also puts her in the 50th percentile. Her head circumference is 37 1/2 cm and she is in the 25th percentile for that. Does that mean she has a small head??? I don't understand all of that. I'm going to google it after I post this. Dr. Freeman said that she was in the 25th percentile for weight and that she is likely overeating which is probably part of the reason she spits up so much. She said that I can't do anything about that, though. Then she had her first round of immunizations. Three shots and an oral vaccine. Poor thing was fine until the nurse started giving her the oral vaccine. She did not want to swallow! Her legs were kicking nonstop like they do and she was throwing a fit! But, it wasn't anything compared the fit she threw when she got those shots. YIKES! All I could do was laugh about it. Her face turned completely red and she started holding her breath gearing herself up for the big scream. And boy did she scream!!! After it was all over she griped for another hour. You know when a baby doesn't really cry...she just calls out to make sure you know they are mad at you. Yeah, that is what she was doing. I can't say that I blame her. Every one of the spots she got stabbed bled a little and then she had those stupid bandaids that I had to peel off of her sensitive baby skin. She has been fussy all night and has a fever from the immunizations. Poor thing. I hope she gets a good night of sleep and feels better in the morning.
Mom took this picture of us last night. I realized that we only had one picture of the three of us together so I decided that we needed to start taking more of them.
I picked this up from JCPenney a couple days ago. I'm so happy with the way it turned out. I'm not quite as disappointed with them after this, but I still probably won't go back.

Awww poor thing! Can't believe you'd do that to her when she was sleeping sooo peacefully.

Love the pics from pennys!

Hope she is doing better after being invaded by thermometers and shots! By the way, love the new background and header!

The collage from JCP looks great! Baby shots stink!! But it's good that she had them.

Hey how do you do your cute headers on here? You and Chelle always have the cutest stuff!!

Too bad chloe about the thermometer.
Tony and I hated our first experience at JcPenny as well (The photographer disappeared for 45 min!) and at first we were disappointed with the pix. Now we love the pix that we got. They are so special and we learned that the photographers struggled with babies regardless of how much we paid or where we went. We also figured out who to request not to have and found one photographer that we loved and always requested her. Course I can't say anything about your JcPenny... Just ours.
By the way Cloe looks so precious!

I think Chloe looks perfect! I doubt that her head size being a little smaller matters at all.

10 pounds! Where is she holding it??? =) Glad to hear she is growing so well. And yes, shots stink. Love the picture of you guys!

Melissa said...

Oh, forgot to say...I don't think it is because she is eating too much...I think it's because she is allergic to your milk. hehe Oh, I crack myself up. ;-)

Poor baby! Shots are no fun. Hope she is feeling better.
