Two-Month Doctor's Appointment

Today is the day that I have been dreading since Ke'alohi's second doctors appointment.  This is the appointment where she gett her first set of shots.  At this appointment with Dr. Ouchi, she weighed in at 12 pounds and 3 ounces, measured 22.25 inches and her head circumference was 16 inches.

Dr. Ouchi said that Ke'alohi was doing great and seemed to be a grand master at "tummy time." She assured us that Ke'alohi is growing well, in the 75th percentile for weight and 50th for height.  After the doctor left, we waited a couple minutes for the nurse to come in with the dreaded shots.  We all knew the shots would be harder on me than they were on her.  They gave Ke'alohi one oral vaccination and three shots in her legs.  Luckily Lucas took the day off of work to come with us for support and was able to calm her down in a few minutes with some cuddling and a bottle. 

Like the dentist gives you stickers and toothbrushes when you are good, our doctor gives us more formula to take home!  Score!  We love going to the doctors now.  Well not really but we will be going back in two months for her four-month appointment to get her next set of shots.
