Leila is two months old!
She is already two months old...
She is only two months old...
She had her shots on Monday at her two-month doctor appointment and screamed her head off. I couldn't pretend to be brave for her. I cannot handle shots or blood being drawn from me, let alone my little baby!
Luckily Jeff was able to hold her arms and watch the nurse give her the three shots. Jeff said it seemed like the nurse went all the way down to the bone! The shots made her very fussy on Monday and Tuesday. But she's back to her old self today:)
Leila was put on Prilosec for reflux...silent reflux (even though she is not silent about it at all;)
The medicine tastes TERRIBLE. The pharmacist just crushed up pills and added them to a liquid. Well I bet there is more to it than that, but that's what it tastes like.
She would not swallow her doses on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. The nurse on call gave me one last tip to try. Hoping this allows her to sleep better at night. Fingers and toes crossed!
Leila is a tiny little peanut still under 9 lbs. She weighs 8 lbs 14 oz (birth weight 6 lbs 8 oz) and is in the 9th percentile for weight. The doctor was not concerned and showed us that her growth is following the growth curve just fine.
She is a long lean one though! She "stands" at 22.75 inches tall (born at 21 inches tall). That puts her in the 68th percentile for height! Hmmmmmmm...where does she get this height?!?!
Happy two months Leila!!!
