2 Months Old...

Today, Norah had her 2 month appointment, I was nervous because I thought she was going to have to get 4 shots. I knew it had to be done but as her mom, it is so hard to watch them in pain. We we got there, they measured and weighed her. Shes definatley keeping up with her big brother, he was a big baby too. She is in the 95th percentile in both height and weight and tipped the scale at a whopping 13lbs 5oz and was 24" long!! Unfortunatley, I dont get my babies for too long as they tend to grow like weeds on me. When it came time for the shots the Dr informed me that as of 2 weeks ago, 3 of the vaccines have now been condensed into 1!! Therefore making it only 2 shots she would need today!! I was so relieved! She also told me that they got a new oral vaccine for Rotavirus (its a nasty bug that causes severe diarrhea and vomitting, which can easily lead to a hospital stay as a result of dehydration) I dont want to ever experience that with Norah, and being that cold and flu season is already here, we took her up on that one as well!! Norah loved it! I somehow rocked Norah to sleep after her oral vaccine and it was time for the shots, so I gently laid her on the table and when the nurse poked her, she slept right through it (I guess fat rolls have their advantages after all!) Jacob was pretty interested as well (I think he was just thankful he wasnt the one on the table!) When she got poked he said "Oh no...baby ouch" and kissed her on the head. It was so sweet. Thankfully, what I thought was going to be a stressful day, turned out to be quite pleasant!!

Today kicked off the start of MOPS here in Orting!! It was an open house for all new, returning and potential moms. We have a new location which happens to be just seconds from our house!! It was so nice to see all my friends that I've missed all summer and I cant wait to get back into the swing of things again!! They had a popcorn maker and drinks for everyone, Jacob ate a whole bag by himself!! Thank you girls for making me feel so welcome today! I could really feel the love from you all...and so could Norah :) ...she definaltey loved being held by all of you!! I cant wait for the first "official" meeting next month!! This is going to be a fun year, I can tell already!!

Stay tuned for tomorrows post where I will be sharing pictures from Renees shower we are having for her at our house!! I cant wait!! Drinks, diapers and dinner here we come!! Its ladies night!

I can't believe how big she is getting! Before we know it Norah and Truitt will be chasing each other around :) It looks like you scored a bunch of great stuff from your neighbor. I wish I had a neighbor like that.
