Sydney had her two month check up yesterday. The doctor said she is doing really well and he was surprised at how tall she has grown. She weighs 11 pounds 11 ounces (75 percentile) and is 25 1/2 inches long (above the 97 percentile).
She was pretty good at the doctor, until they pulled out the needles. She received 5 vaccinations yesterday ( only 4 shots because the polio vaccine is given orally). She started screaming as soon as the first needle went in, but stopped when the nurse left the room. She pretty much slept most of the rest of the day and we gave her infant tylenol every 4 hours or so.
I thought we would be lucky and she wouldn't have any reactions to the shots, but today she has been so cranky! Nothing seems to console her. At least we know what to expect when she goes in for her 4 month check up and shots!
She is finally out of the baby zombie stage and looks around and holds your gaze. She smiles a lot too, which makes all of those crying times a little easier to take. She is such a sweet baby! Bath time and diaper changes have also become good times - no more tears!
