Morgan's 2 Month Checkup

We took Morgan to the pediatrician for her 2 month checkup on Monday. I knew going in that this would be a rough visit because she'd be getting her first round of shots, but she did surprisingly well!!

I am pleased to report that our sweet girl weighed in at 10lb 12oz and is 23&1/2"! She has gained 4lb since birth and has grown 4". I just can't believe how she's grown in just two months - but then again, I can certainly tell she's growing quickly because the clothes that were too big for her just a month ago are now getting a bit snug!  The pediatrician gave her a thumbs up - said she is doing great.  And Samantha, being the good big sister she was, held her sister's hand while she had her shots.  It was too cute.

She did run a slight fever and was a tad fussy for the rest of the day but that was to be expected.  I gave her some Tylenol and she felt much better.  She fell asleep right after we left the doctor so we took the opportunity to run a few errands at the mall, complete with a birthday lunch for Owen (Monday was his birthday) and letting Samantha ride on the carousel - something she loves to do!

We'll go back to the pediatrician in two months for another checkup - can't wait to see how much she's grown by then!!!
