2 months

Our little Lula is just about two months old.  Technically not until tomorrow, but hey.  We had her Doctor appointment on the 2nd of this month.  I have been dreading this appointment ever since she was born.  I knew what was coming, Lula... not so much.  If she is anything like me, I cringe the second I know that I'm getting one. (a little side note: my mom used to trick me to get me to the doctor's office.  Once there I would start to panic.... pretty much run around the room in tears until I was pined down by my mom and younger brother. This literally happened until I was 16.)

So the thought of taking my sweet baby girl just about killed me.  Once I saw the nurse come in with the shots I just about fell apart at the seams.  She then asked ever so nicely, "please hold her arms down so she doesn't accidentally get poked."  At that moment I had all my memories flash through my own mind.  So of course I held her arms and looked away.  Good thing she just stared at the nurse!!  Poor thing jumped when the first one went in, and immediately started to screaming. Now this scream was no ordinary cry, it was the worst, heart wrenching cry you can hear as a mom.  So of course I start to cry.  I just wanted to scoop her up and run out of the building.  Being a "good" mom (this is what I have to tell myself) I let the nurse finish, and gingerly picked her up and cradled her.  Both of us crying. I know pretty pathetic.  But I couldn't do anything about it, nor did I really care how it looked.

Lula's Two Month Stats:
Weight: 11 lbs 5 oz  80%
Length: 23 1/4 inches  95%
Head: 15 cm   50%

Lula, right now you are starting to 'coo' more and more.  You smile so much these days, and maybe we can get a little giggle if we're lucky.  You have started to sleep about 5 hours at night, which is great!  Your little thighs and cheeks just keep getting more and more chubby.  You love snuggling with daddy at night.  You always love your nightly baths.  Plain and simple we love you so much and are so happy you are healthy and a happy little girl!
