2 Month Well Visit!

6/7/2007
Alexandra had her 2 month Dr. Appointment. It's a lot of fun going to them because we get to know her weight, height and head size! We also get to ask a lot of questions and have the Dr. fill us in on a lot of different information and advice. This time Alex got to get her first set of shots. She was not very happy at all. She got a total of 3 shots (one had 3 different vaccines in it), as well as an oral vaccine. The different shots where; Diphtheria-Tetanus-acellular Pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type B, Polio, Pneumococcal Conjugate, Hepatitis B and Rotavirus. They do the shots with two nurses and it goes so fast that before she can really start screaming she is in your arms and calming down! Its still hard to watch her reaction when they first stick her.
So, Alex weighs 10 pounds 1.7 ounces. This puts her in the 35% for her age group. She is 22 1/2 inches long, which is in the 65% of her age group. Her head is 39.2 cm around. This is in the 60% as well. So overall she is a little bit skinnier then most babies her age and is pretty close to being in the middle for her height and head!
She is growing that's for sure. Gaining around 4 pounds from birth and stretching almost 4 cm more. She is Finally fitting in to 0-3 month clothing and is most definitely getting her own strong features.
Another great thing... the last 4 nights Alex has slept from around 10:30pm tell about 6:30am!!! It's great!
