Busy Busy Busy

Really, I have tons of stuff I have wanted to write about. Problem is I don't get much of a chance with working and taking care of Meadow. I wouldn't trade it though. I have so many pictures on my camera I NEED to download. I am hoping I will get a few minutes to do so tomorrow.

Meadow is "talking" more. She likes to use "gaaaaaaa" a lot. She always says it with a smile. Speaking of smiles, she has started to get dimples. I think she is going to be trouble for DH and I. She has such a cute smile. And I think her eyes are going to stay blue. Those are the two reasons I think she is going to be trouble for us. She really likes to engage in conversation with DH. Earlier tonight they were having a contest to see who could get the loudest. I don't know if Meadow has realized her voice capabilities yet.

Another reason I haven't been around much is that Meadow has had a bad cold. I took her to three different doctors before we were able to get her something to help her feel better. DH had a bacteria infection also the week before last. I had spent a week trying to get my family feeling better. Then my in-laws came for a visit. All in all things have been pretty busy for us.

I want my momma!

Meadow only fusses when something is truly wrong. She was fussy the day she got her shots, but that is to be expected. The only other times we have heard her fuss are: empty belly, full diaper, or upset belly. Today, I when I picked her up at the babysitters, I could hear her screaming when I got close to the house. I walked in the door and they told me she was fussy the whole time she was there. They thought that is was out of character for her. I took her from the babysitter's arms and she was quiet almost right away. It was like she was saying, "I just want my momma!" It made me feel so good. I can't wait until she gives me those big open mouthed kisses. Thanks Candace for letting me know what I all have to look forward to!

2 mos check up

Meadow was a real trooper today. She had to get three shots and an oral vaccine today. Her legs are bothering her, so I gave her some baby tylenol. Since then she seems fine. Now she is talking to the animals on her swing. She is up to 9 pounds 15 ounces and 22 1/2" long. Her head is 15" in circumerfence. Her stats at birth were 7 pounds 11 ounces, 19 1/2" long, and her head was 13 3/4". The doctor said I could start giving her small amounts of cereal. I am not sure if I will do it. I wanted to wait until she was 4 months old to start introducing her to cereal. I will have to talk to DH about it.

She showed the doctor she could roll over, coo, keep concentration on mom, and smile in reaction to me. I was so proud of her. Those were all things at the beginning of the appointment he said she should start doing soon. Ha! she is doing them now.

The babysitter did say she was fussy today, so I will attribute it to her not having tylenol. I wasn't told to give her anything or do anything to help her with the discomfort. The nurse was kind of flighty today. She forgot to give me my form that showed which vaccines she got today. Then it took her 15 minutes to get it.
