At our last doctors visit, when Hadley was only 2 weeks old, she was only in 10th percentile for weight, 25th for length, and 25th for head circumference! Our little girl is growing like a weed! The doctor was pleased with her progress and says developmentally she is right on track!
Our family was teasingly giving me a hard time because I found a video online that showed what tests the doctor's give babies at the 2 month checkup to distinguish between typical and atypical development. I just may have been doing little practice sessions with Miss Hadley to make sure she'd pass her "test" with flying colors! So what if she had a little edge...? It's the teacher in me, I can't help myself! ;)
Anyway, at the end of the appointment it was time for the dreaded vaccine shots! I'm definitely pro-vaccination, but I'm anti seeing my little girl scream out in pain. Luckily, our nurse was very efficient. Hadley took one vaccine orally and then got three consecutive shots in her upper thighs super quickly! Mommy and Daddy held onto her and comforted her throughout and though she definitely lost it, we were able to calm her down after about a minute of crying.
Oh, and in case you're interested (or are just a crazy helicopter Mama like me)...here's the 2 Month Old Baby Development video of the things I was coaching Hadley on... :)
