Babies First Shots

Davie is 8 weeks old as of last Wednesday.  NUTS!  So, last Friday she had her 2-month well check.  We found the most amazing pediatrician in Norman!  The office was like a baby wonderland compared to the prison-like waiting room we were sitting in before.  Anyways, Davie is healthy.  She now weighs 10 pounds and she is 22.5 inches long.  She is in the 25th percentile for weight, and 75th percentile for length . . . sounds like her momma already.  

Then came the shots.  Oh man, was it sad!  Davie cried so hard she stopped making noise.  Heart-wrenching!  But I didn't cry.  I had to stay strong!  Anyways, she didn't cry for too long.  Then she slept for 48 hours (not constant sleep of course).  Finally today she had a little life to her again.  

Now that she is smiling all the time, (and even laughing some times!) she has also learned to pout.  It is the saddest face you've ever seen.  Her mouth turns into a perfect upside down U, and her bottom lip sticks out so far.  This is also paired with crying, and happens when she is really really tired.  

I really like that I am starting to figure this gal out a little bit more.  She is doing very well with her schedule . . . although the shots threw us off a little bit.  Anyways, we are still striving for a little bit longer stretches at night, but I can't complain too much.

We're looking for pediatricians right now. What is the name of yours?

I hate shots!!! Kudos to you for not crying. I cried at Gracie's first shots so now I don't look at the needles I just watch her face and try to distract her.

Dr. Victor Wilson in Norman. He wears a bowtie!

I've already told TJ he gets to take Baby for her shots- I don't know that I can do it.
