Two months old and doctor's visit.

So my little girl turned two months old yesterday and today we had her check-up. She is getting so big, and while I'm happy seeing her grow into her own little person, I'm sad to see it go by so quickly. It feels like just yesterday I gave birth to her but at the same time, it feels like she's been here forever. She's doing really well with holding her head up on her own most of the time, I'm sure by next month she won't need any help. She's also working on rolling over from her back to her belly... she gets to her side and can't figure out how to go any farther so she gives up and throws herself on her back again. I still can't get her to do tummy time for more than a couple of minutes because she just rolls onto her back. She enjoys her activity mat more now, she grabs, smacks, and talks to the toys. Unfortunately she doesn't like to cuddle as much anymore, she only likes it when she's getting sleepy... most of the time she prefers to be on her mat or in crib so she can talk to the flowers on the ceiling. Lol.

As I mentioned before, we had her two month doctor's visit today. Last month she weighed 10 pounds 2 ounces and was 22 inches long. Today she weighed in at 12 pounds 2 ounces and was 23 inches long, putting her in the 75th percentile for both height and weight. The doctor said she's doing great and I agree! :) Everything else looks great on her, even her diaper rash and cradle cap is under control. Sadly today was also her first round of immunizations and that part didn't go so well. She got one orally, which she took quite well(it helped that she was hungry at the time), and then she got three shots. The first two were in her left thigh, she jumped and then screamed when she got them but after a little crying and getting the bottle back, she was okay. Then the third one came, that was in her right thigh, and she was miserable. Nothing would calm her down. I tried feeding her, rocking her, everything I could think of and nothing worked... she cried and screamed for at least five minutes before she would take her bottle again, which in turn made me cry because I felt so bad for her and there was nothing I could do to help her. :( She's doing better now, though. I'm monitoring her temperature and trying to keep her happy and comfortable. She's been napping on and off since we left the doctor's office and she's eaten quite a bit which makes me happy... I hope she keeps doing well.

Happy two months Ingrid! :D

      Ingrid sounds like she's growing well, I hate seeing baby get the immunization shots, I always breastfeed right after so it helps soothes her quickly. My daughter didn't like to stay on her belly either once she knew how to roll over.

      We have an area that Selena gets stuck on but she continue to barrel roll, its very funny to watch, I keep telling her roll over the other way, ha ha.
