Our Brave Little Girl

We took Emma for her 2 month check-up (even though she's technically 2 1/2 months old). She's looking great! She's up to just under 11 pounds and almost 22 inches long! That sounds huge since she was only 6 lbs. 13 oz. at birth, but she really is quite petite we think.

The big event for today's visit was getting her first round of shots. She took one orally that must have been quite tasty (her first taste of sweetness) because she gulped it down. Then she got three shots, one in one leg and two in the other. She cried of course, but was very brave and did great overall. A good friend recommended we wait and give her a bottle after the shots to help comfort her. We did that and it helped a bunch - she was asleep by the time we left the doctor's office! And so far today she hasn't been too extra fussy. Just extra tired and maybe a little more clingy.

Here's a picture of our brave little girl with her three band-aids...plus a random cute one and a rare shot of me and Emma - just for kicks.
