Anyway, a quick update on the wee one:
- Anna is now 11 lbs., 3 oz. and 23 inches long. She's in the 75th percentile. Good baby!
- She's developing a flat head at the back of her noggin, due to lying on her back all the time. But the doctor says it'll even out as she spends more time moving around and on her tummy.
- Everything is perfect... her eyes, her ears, her tummy and her sleeping and eating habits. She's even cooing a lot now. She likes to talk to her Mama and Daddy all the time. (Cute!!)
- When she had her vaccinations, you could tell exactly when she felt the needle prick her chubby little thigh by the look on her face. Then she started wailing away. But 5 minutes later, she was fine. Seems like she's going to be just fine with the whole needle thing.
(However, I still brought her home, fed her, cuddled her, and then wrapped her up in my stretchy wrap baby carrier thing so she can snuggle up next to my chest and sleep the afternoon away attached to a warm body.)
That might be more for Mama then it is for Anna's sake.
Tonight just happens to be the first night that Andrew and I are getting out for our first date night, too. (We've got tickets... otherwise, I wouldn't leave Anna after being vaccinated. Even though she seems totally fine.)
So... Grandma to the rescue! My Mom took the afternoon off of work and is coming by to hang out with us... then I'll leave to go get Andrew from work and head out for Date Night.
Andrew and I have a feeling we're not going to be able to talk about anything but Anna while we're gone tonight.
Wish us luck, folks.
