2 Month Check-up

As I begin to relay these stats, I'm realizing that this would have been the perfect poll to have up before the 2-month check-up
How much do you think HG will weigh? (She was 8 lbs 1 oz at her 2-week check-up.)
A)  9-10 lbs
B)10-11 lbs
C)11-12 lbs
D) 12 lbs + 

Well, if you guessed B, you are correct... HG weighed in at 10.5 pounds and measured 22.5 inches in height! That puts her in the 40th percentile for weight and 50th percentile for height, and the doc said she looked great on all other accounts too!

Then we got 8 vaccines in 4 shots (1 given orally and 3 injected in her thigh). She cried instantly, but was soothed within a few minutes after it was all over. Thankfully they did not cause her to run a fever, but she was very sleepy and weary for the remainder of the day. By the next day, she was back to her spunky lil self!

Since then, we've had a few small adventures... take a look:
We participated in the March of Dimes walk and met the triplets! What a rewarding day to be part of something so spectacular... many community members filled the streets as we walked for 3 miles! Yay for babies!!

When mommy and daddy are in the middle of a shopping trip, diaper changes happen in the back seat of the car. :) haha! She was such a trooper... slept right through it all!

We found a nice nature trail about 30 minutes outside of town and spent the morning breathing in the fresh air and exploring the natural beauty of the Lowcountry!!
