For the Record

Finley has reached the double digits! She had her 2 month check up yesterday and tipped the scales. Here's the stats:

Weight: 10 pounds 12 oz (40%)
Length: 21.5 inches (40%)
Head: 15.5 inches (75%)

So she is growing well! Her growth has improved since her first few weeks and she is right where she should be. We also got scolded for not developing good sleep habits with her. (She sleeps in her bouncer). So we are now dedicated to getting this girl to sleep right! She will only sleep in her crib from now on and we're working on a routine.

It was awful to watch her get four vaccinations at this appointment. The first was a liquid that she had to drink. Apparently she was hungry because she guzzled it down, no problem. That was followed by a sequence of three shots. The look of terror in her eyes as she screamed broke my heart. I felt like she was looking at me saying "MOM!!! Why are you letting them do this to me?!?!?!"

I'm not sure if it was the new routine or sleepiness from the vaccinations but she slept the best EVER last night! A stretch of 6 hours with a quick feeding at 2:30 am followed by 5 more hours of sleep! We could get used to this :)
