Two Month Checkup




Well sweet baby Mae is two months old and we started the week off with a visit to the Doctor's office. The nurse and doctor both said she was very alert and strong for only being 8 weeks old and that she is still perfect in everyway. She weighs 10lbs 12oz and is 22.5 inches long, both in the 50th percentile for her age. So she is doing great, she did have to start her shots and got two, one in each thigh. The nurses were great and gave them to her at the same time and up until that point she had been happy and smiling, but as soon as she got them her whole face turned red and she let out a cry I have never heard before...I did ok though, I didn't cry myself! I scooped her up right away to tell her it would be alright and she calmed down pretty fast. Now she is sleeping it off in her swing with a full belly and some tylenol. Now we just have to go back in a month to get two more........maybe Eric can take her, but I don't think he would handle it as well as I did :)

Happy 6 Weeks Mae!

My little lady is six weeks old today! I can't believe how much she is changing and growing. She has recently began to "talk" to us and I was able to record some of it. The whole thing is pretty cute and makes me wonder how she is going to continue to change into a little person. I hope you enjoy it!

Three Cheers for Eric

 

After many hard months of training and eating right, Eric finally ran the Mini Marathon this past Saturday! He did so in under 2 and a half hours and managed to raise close to $1200 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which contributes to clinical research to end blood cancers. The whole experience was moving and I am so proud of him, not only for completing the 13.1 mile race, but even more so doing his part to help save lives. My wonderful husband, I love you!
