The little peanut is 2 months old today.
Her check up was no fun. She no-likey four immunizations. ouch! Actually, I think it was just as traumatizing for Izzy and Evie who were in the same room when Gigi got her shots. They were cowering in the corner holding their ears because they couldnt stand to hear her cry. It was so sweet/sad and sympathetic!
Although they always give you the papers on possible side effects of the shots, I dont think any of my other babies have ever responded to them like Gigi did. It was pitiful! She slept most of the day, but kept waking up screaming in pain. I would try to comfort her but she was inconsolable and would whimper back to sleep only to wake screaming again. She was refusing to eat and had a fever that night. No fun! By morning though, she was back to herself and doing this....
Gigi is one easy baby. God knew exactly what we needed when He gave us her as #6!! She has been sleeping through the night since about 3 weeks old. She goes to sleep around 10 or 11, Usually once at night she'll wake to be fed, and then stays with us to snuggle and sleep until 8.....or later:).....SUCH a good baby!
The pediatrician asked at her visit if she is getting tummy time every day. I had to laugh because....well....she's not really getting back time either. There just arent enough hours in the day for everyone to hold her as much as they want to. She lives in the Baby Bjorn and is so content to be carried everywhere and nap throughout the day next to mommy. I love it. Another reason Im glad she's only 9lbs! Im going to need a good chiropractor if she starts to pork up!
