2 Month Check-Up

So much has happened during the past week and I have been a total slacker on blogging! So, in order to not overwhelm you with one long post. I'm going to try and break it up into little ones. How's that sound?

Last Friday was Caydence's 2 month check-up with her pediatrician. Our little stinker weighed in at 7 lbs, 8 oz. She is getting so big! She has gained 3 lbs now since she was born. Unfortunately for little Caydee she also had to get her 2 month vaccines at this appointment :(. She had a little medicine she had to take and then got 3 shots. One in her right leg and two in her left. :( Poor sweetheart.

She was vaccinated for Hepatitis B, Polio, Pneumococcal Disease, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Rotavirus, and Hib. Obviously, since Josh and I have never had a baby before we didn't know that babies can get fevers from vaccines. After the nurse gave Caydence her shots she told us that usually parents will give their baby Tylenol right before their appointment. (They could have told us that earlier...). But anyways, they gave us some free infant grape flavored Tylenol which we took home.

Over the weekend she went to her first cornboil as well as a wedding shower and was able to meet my Mom's extended family. She met 3rd cousins, 4th cousins, 5th cousins, great great aunts and uncles, and even some Great Great Great Aunts! She was pretty sleepy for the most part and ended up getting a fever later in the day from her vaccines the day before. But we fought it off with the Tylenol (which she didn't like). I thought she would like the Tylenol. It smelled like grape candy, but then I tasted it... Not so good! She is all better now though. :)

You'll noticed I've added some more links on the right side of the page to some more wonderful blogs that I came across. Enjoy!

I am glad her fever went away. Poor girl 3 shots. Wow a bridal shower and a corn boil, what a busy bee.

My boys never liked the grape either. They love the cherry flavored Tylenol!
