Strong, Healthy Girl

Here's a brief Eisley update for you... today we took Eisley for her 2 month check-up. That's right. TWO months. We got a good report, and it was totally fun to get her new weight and measurements. When she was born, she was 20 and 3/4 inches long and weighed 6 pounds and 15 ounces. Here's a picture of our tiny little girl when she was 2 days old:



Today, she is 22 and 3/4 inches, and weighs 10 pounds and 6 ounces. That puts her in the 53rd percentile for height and 28th percentile for weight. Here's a photo of my 2 cuties from Eisley's visit to the doctor today:



The doctor wanted to see all of Eisley's "tricks", and she of course did great. Eisley was very talkative today for the doctor and showed Dr. Bennett how strong she is when she "stands" on her legs. Dr. Bennett also put Eisley on her tummy, and Eisley held her head up strong and proud. Dr. Bennett even said, "Wow! She's VERY strong for just two months old!" This of course, made Eisley's mom and dad swell with pride.

Eisley also got her 2 month immunizations today, which was not fun for any of us, but we all of course survived. Eisley calmed down pretty quickly, and now all is well at the Lawson household. I'll leave you with the "before the shots" shot, and the "after the shots" shot. Enjoy!

Awwh, she is so calm, cool, and collected before the shots (although do I note a little apprehension on her face?) and so beet red after!

Also, HAHA, for the nurse's scrubs! My mom's a nurse and I always got a kick out of the patterns she wears.

Poor baby. At least they don't remember it at 2 months, right? It's always the hardest on mom :)

the "before" picture very much looks like Eisley is thinking, "um...what are you doing?" check out her face.

glad to hear all is well - Stockton needs a strong woman to keep him in line.

man, two months goes by fast! (at least it does for me, the person who's not having to change the 20 diapers a day). :)
i can tell from that 180 with the shot that she might have gotten a little bit of that redheaded temper... :) watch out!

MIGHT have gotten a little of that redheaded temper? Oh, there's no might about it-- she's got it for sure!

I think it is harder on the parents than the kids at shots time. CB is having her boosters tomorrow and I am the one who is going to need a lollipop from the doctor to put a smile on my face.... so sad!
