OUCH

Yesterday, Eloise had her two month checkup with Dr. Broadbent. Can you believe that she is already two months old? I'm still in shock!! The high point of the appointment was getting to see how much Eloise has grown since we were there a month and a half ago. She is now 9 pounds and 13 ounces, which puts here in the 25th percentile for weight. They measured her at 22 1/2 inches, so she is in the 52nd percentile for height. That's a big accomplishment for my family, considering that most of us never even made the charts for height. I guess she takes after her Daddy in that category too. She loved when Dr. Broadbent was examining her. He must have found some ticklish spots because she was cracking up the entire time. I have to say, it was pretty dang cute. Zach had to work, so my sweet Mom volunteered to come to the appointment with us, and hold my hand while Eloise got her shots. Which brings us to the low point of the checkup...the shots!! I think that I was more nervous for poor Eloise to get her shots than I was to give birth to her. She was her usual happy self up until the first shot, and was a wreck until the other two were finished. Yep, the poor baby had to get three shots in both of her legs. It broke her heart, but I think it broke mine just as much. It took her a while to calm down, but once she did she was as happy as can be. She's a trooper, that girl of mine!!
