2 month appointment!

Maddie turned the big .17 on Wednesday! We celebrated by taking her to the pediatrician for her first vaccinations. She got DTaP, HepB, and Polio, but they were all combined in one shot, so she just got one stick. I'm one of those crazy granola moms who insists on spacing out baby vaccinations, so we'll be going back next month for two more shots. In fact, she'll be getting shots every month for about the next 7 months :(. She screamed when she got the shot (although I think she was mostly just mad that the nurse had to straighten her leg out), but immediately settled down after I picked her up, so it wasn't too bad.

Speaking of granola, I'm happy to announce that we are switching to cloth diapers! I'm really excited about it, and I'll be posting pictures of her in her very adorable diapers once we get the hang of them. And for those of you that haven't seen/heard of/used a cloth diaper in 10+ years, I promise I'm not crazy! They've come a long way and are much easier to use than the old fashioned cloth options.

Here are the 2 month stats!
Weight: 9 lbs 1.5 oz (10th percentile)
Height: 21.75 inches (25th percentile)
Head: 36.4 cm (5th percentile- pea head)
Her growth has slowed down since that first month, but she was still below the 5th percentile at 2 weeks, so we're happy with her growing!

Maddie has also started almost sleeping through the night! She now sleeps from about 10pm-4am, and then from about 4:30am-8am. Not bad at all for such a little monkey! Her mommy is thrilled to be getting such a long stretch of sleep, but her Daddy is missing that 2 am feeding a little bit. But I have a sneaking suspicion that he doesn't mind sleeping through the whole night again.

We are in Greenville for the weekend, and Kat is home so lots of pictures will be forthcoming!
