Two Months Old
Hannah is now officially two months old. On Wednesday she went to get her two month pictures at JC Pennys and today she had her two month check-up and vaccinations. She weighed in at 12 lbs 13 oz and was 23 1/4 inches long! She's now in the 88th percentile for height and the 95th percentile for weight and the 90th percentile for head circumference. The doctor says she's doing great and there's no need to be concerned about the height/weight discrepancy. He said the formula she is on is most likely making her gain more weight b/c the rice starch adds calories. Apparently she should level back out once she starts table food.
I thought that it would be no big deal seeing Hannah get her shots after having to watch her get a lumbar puncture, but my heart still bled as she screamed bloody murder each time they poked her and there was nothing I could do about it. It turns out that Hannah is one of those babies that is negatively affected by her shots. The entire rest of the day she was fussy, lethargic, had no appetite, and ran a temperature of 100.5 degrees Farenheit. It was so sad for me to see my little girl not acting like herself. :( Eventually she started to perk up a bit right before bedtime so hopefully she'll be back to her normal bubbly self tomorrow.
Tomorrow she gets to go to her first ever Mendenhall Bean Supper. That should be fun and exciting. She'll get to see her Great Grandma Clodfelter again and hopefully her Grandpa Clodfelter will be there too. On Sunday she will get to meet her Grandpa Barney and Mindy for the first time. Everyone keep their fingers crossed that she makes a good first impression!
As soon as I get her JC Penny's pictures back I'll post the official 2 month pictures. In the mean time, enjoy all the unofficial pictures of my big girl! The last picture of her in her swing is her looking pitiful after her shots. :( Even when she's sick she's cute!
