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.

Can I offer my two-cents? I would go easy on intro-ing solids right now. Her digestive system is still learning to function on it's own and giving her even small amounts of rice can cause stomach discomfort.

That's great she's so *advanced*! You've got yourself a strong and smart little girl.
