First round down...

Today was Maya's two month wellness visit, even though she is two and a half months.. they scheduled us a little late for some reason. Anyway, she weighed in at 11.5 pounds and 22 inches, right in the 50th percentile. Doc says she's got excellent head/neck strength/control, she is plumping nicely, and is cute as can be. Duh! lol

She was all smiles until the shots. Now. I knew they would make her cry, but DAMN. She screamed like someone was hacking off a limb. I cried. *sigh*

I plopped her bottle in her mouth as soon as they were done and she all but forgot about it. She is a bit cranky this evening, but so far has avoided spiking a fever.

I wanted to kill the lady who gave her the shots. Poor woman. How do you stick babies like that??? I mean, I KNOW its all for the greater good and all that, but I so could not do that!! What a job! She was an incredibly nice lady, she talked to Maya the whole time and kept apologizing..

Doc says I have to start giving her prune juice to help with some issues, but other than that she's perfect.


And with that, I am off to snuggle my little girl while she (hopefully) falls asleep!

I am so in love....

I love her I love her I love her. *sigh*
She is just so unbelievably snuggly.

I was just thinking, even though I REALLY do not want to rush things, I cannot wait until she is old enough to play with Play Doh! Weeee! LOL

I look forward to all that stuff!

We have a Docs appointment on the 31st. She has been spitting up a LOT the last two weeks. It seems to get worse every day. And she's been having trouble pooping. Poor kid. No one should have to strain like that. So I suppose her formula will change. Of course. Because I have a HUGE unopened can of it in the cabinet. When we bought it, Todd said to me "Let's just buy one." But nooooo, I had to 'stock up'. Pffft.

Again, I am a bad Momma. She has this face she makes when, after all of that struggling, she is actually pooping, that puts me in hysterics. I will have to get a picture of it. My Mom finally got to witness it last weekend, and the two of us sat there cracking up. Poor kid. Time to start lining up the therapists.....

She is so much more alert now. I am loving it. She smiles SO much, and coos and makes all kinds of squeaky noises. I cannot wait until she just breaks out into a laugh, she is sooo close.

Every time she smiles, whether at me or the wall (lol) I just about melt into the floor. *sigh*

Pictures forthcoming this weekend.

My lil' Punkin'

We took a trip to a local pumpkin patch today. Would have gone a lot better and been able to take a lot more pics had it not been 91 frikkin' degrees out there today, in the shade no less! Oy man it was hot.

So we did the best we could! These photos were taken by my friend Robyn. Many thanks to her for inviting us. Cannot wait to see what next week brings!

I also took some pictures with my camera, and will hopefully have a good one or two to post later tomorrow. For now, the gems Robyn took...

Chillin'..eh...sweatin' is more like it! I felt bad putting a hat on her..and my Mom knitted those booties just for this occasion, so on they went! Thanks for the booties Mom..LOVE them!!

She was aaaall done by this point (this was like...10 minutes after we got there!!)

And this one that Robyn titled "Homeslice". She was grabbing her crotch, and she looks as if she is about to flip the bird...

Ok lady, enough with the camera already!

Bad Momma

We had some errands to run today. Then we went for a nice long walk. It is a beautiful day here, absolutely beautiful. So..when we got home, Maya decided that she was hungry and she was hungry NOW. A full hour before she would normally eat. I had a bottle in the fridge, so I just fed her that. Never given her cold formula before. She did not seem to mind at all. But then, as I was changing her diaper, I noticed that she was shivering. You know, like one of those really deep internal shivers? OMG.

I felt SO bad. She was smiling and cooing at me anyway, but Dear God! I felt SO SO bad. Ugh.

Please tell me it bothered me more than it did her...
