Well Baby Visit

Today Eden got to go see her doctor again! We're trying to keep positive attitudes about being at the doctor so that she doesn't have anxiety towards going to and being at the doctors' office.

We had Eden's 2 month well baby appointment - even though she's almost 3 months old now! She weighed 10lbs 4oz and was 23 inches long. The doctor was very pleased with everything that he saw. She made sure to show off for him too! She held her head up for a long time, she talked to him, she laughed with him...and then there were shots! Eden had 3 shots today and an oral medication. The shots came as a shock to her when she got them. In the first seconds I didn't think she was going to cry, she just looked at us like she was confused, then came the sad lip, and then the red-faced-tears rolling-screaming. After all 3 shots were given and she had her Buggs Bunny band aids on we were able to hold her again and comfort her and she was happy again.

On the drive home Eden actually fell asleep and was out for the ride. She probably got about a 30 minute nap, which was all she got other than some power naps while at the doctor, all morning. When we tried to put her down for a nap this afternoon she didn't want to go to sleep in her cradle by herself, so I gave in and took a nap with her so she would sleep (this probably means I made her regress in her sleeping habits that were improving by leaps and bounds). Since her nap this afternoon she's been very, very fussy and tired. We did give her some Tylenol, but she's just wanted to sleep and be held this afternoon. I hope she starts to feel better soon, I don't like having a grumpy baby when there's nothing that we can do to help her feel better.

Next week we will travel to GA for Eden's baptism at Dunwoody United Methodist Church on Sunday. I will definitely add pictures and some information about that when we return home from the trip!
