2 Month Doctor Appointment

Eloise had her 2 month doctor appointment yesterday, and this kid is still measuring gigantic! She weighed in at 12#7oz (75%), and her height was 24.5 inches, which was officially "off the charts," so the doc notates that at 98%. Her head was also in the 95th percentile, at 15 3/4 inches.

It still baffles me that I helped create this GIANT BABY.

The best part about the visit?

The vaccines.

Yes, you heard me right.

Why the vaccines? Because this kid SLEPT WELL for the first time EVER last night. And by slept well, I mean we only got up 2x instead of the typical 6-7. Eloise went down around 10pm, awoke to nurse at 2:30 and 5:30 (and having a 3 hour long 2nd sleep shift is UNHEARD OF!), took awhile to settle to sleep, but eventually slept again from 6:30-7:30.

Can we just give her shots every night before bed? I joke, I joke.

Eloise did great at her appointment, even after a morning of not-so-great broken up naps. She smiled and cooed at the doctor and nurse, and was very brave for her 3 shots and 1 oral vaccine. She cried really hard when they went in and kept crying on and off as I nursed her afterward. So sad! I gave her a dose of Tylenol when we got home, and another right before bedtime. She's been doing great ever since- no fever, just extra sleepy with many more poopy diapers than normal (that happened to Iyla post vaccines too!)

She was diagnosed with oral thrush, which is an overgrowth of candida in her mouth causing white telltale spots on her tongue, lips, and inside her cheeks. Very common, generally harmless, and easy to treat with medicated drops.

Other than the thrush, Eloise passed all of her other 2 month milestone markers with flying colors! This kid is getting more settled, predictable, & charming every single day, and both BC and I continue to fall more and more in love with her. She's a cuddly, content (except for the car or others holding her when she is TIRED) sweetheart, and we just love watching her little personality unfold!

 She did great with the oral vaccines. Eloise is generally cool with anything that resembles food going into her mouth (gas drops, probiotics, etc). And look at those LONG LEGS!

 This is how she spent the afternoon, passed out in various locations.

Today Eloise woke up smiling and is still sleepier than normal. I am taking full advantage of her sleepy state with multiple errands, and would LOVE if we lucked out with another restful night.

Here's hoping!
