2 months

Yesterday was the 2 month mark for Miranda and along with it came her 2 month checkup and shots. As I was not there for it, all this is coming second hand from Michelle. As for the basics, Miranda is now 21.5 inches and 10 lbs 13 oz. So we are up about 3.5 lbs and about 2 inches. Although she definitely feels like she has grown in "height" more than what the doc says, but that could be just because of her stretching out more and not curled in the fetal position. Her birthmark seems stable, so are just keeping an eye on it.

As for her shots, it sounds like the took them in stride (better than her old man). But any discomfort from the shots must have happened later on in the evening as she was just wailing. You could tell that where the shots were given was starting to swell up, so we gave a little bit of baby aspirin and just kept rocking her till she calmed down and now seems to be holding up just fine.

We always give Madeline Tylenol before her shots to minimize her later discomfort.
