How Old is she?
2 months already... wow has time flew so fast...It feels like a whole year has gone by in a flash but only a few months have gone by. I feel like the first year is going fly by even faster.. and we will work very hard to make sure we make the best out of every moment
How much does she weigh?
We have her first shots coming up next week .. mommy is very nervous.. even though i have done this before with our boys.. but i find that the more sensitive the child is the more it hurts my heart when they cry from there shots.. I will update this post with her weight and measurements as we get them
At her recent 2 month shots she weighed 10 pounds 8 ounces .. the nurse was very happy with her weight gain even though she is lactose intolerant and the struggles we had in the beginning with her colic.
How is her colic ?
Her colic is getting a lot better , our doctor had told us that babies grow out of colic at or before 4 months , we had noticed her colic at 2 days old . The last few weeks it has been a whole lot better mommy and daddy get some sleep and are not as frustrated, Isabelle is happier and spits up less.
How did she take her first needles?
Since she is a very calm person, she was just sitting on daddy's lap sucking on her soother and then suddenly this poke comes twice in each leg.. ooooohhh she so wasn't happy at all but mommy cuddled her right away , she was able to calm down . Since we waited 10 minutes to make sure she didn't have any kind of reaction , she then drank her bottle and went to bed until 4pm, She needed some medication during the night as her legs were starting to hurt and it was starting to make her cranky but the day after she was also a bit unhappy and not her normal self , her legs were sore and bothering her, but otherwise she took it like a champ.
Do we believe getting shots for our children?
With my first son I absolutely believed in getting his shots... it was my first baby so i followed all recommendations but when my second son was born I felt like a different shift in what i believed in, Tanner got his first few shots and struggled pretty bad.. days after getting his shots.. he got very high fevers and wouldn't be able to sleep at all, their was no other factors bothering him at the time. When he turned 6 months i had decided that i had enough of the world trying to tell me what was best for my children so i didn't get any of his shots. The last appointment I had gone to , to get his shots the nurses seemed very mean , it was a horrible exsperience because she acted like it was her way or the high way and since i pushed against this , she was very angry with me but when i contracted measles in 2014 for the second time in my life (first time was at age 3) and i had lost a pregnancy because i didn't even know i had it . I had been immunised when i was a child but I needed another shot but i didn't know this until it showed in my blood work that i was immune to it. I had decided it was best interest of our kids to go get all there shots done no matter how much my opinions get in the way and no matter how much people treat us or judge us. Not getting kids shots opens them up for things in life we don't want . I put away my pride
