So, here are the stats on our little lady.
Height- 22 3/4 inches (85%)
Weight- 10 lbs 15 oz. (75%)
Head Cir.- 38.5 cm (60%)
Not only do we have a little chunker, but we have a LONG little chunker. She has the longest arms and legs I have ever seen. And a long torso for that matter. She is filling out 3 month clothing, but it's almost becoming too short on her. Go figure that Dallin, at 5' 10" and me at 5' 3", would have a long baby. I'm sure she'll slow down soon enough and be a little shorty though. :)
The last two nights, she slept 8 hours and 7.5 hours respectively. Yeah. I know. I think someone is growing. We're not complaining. At all. She also ate non stop two days ago. I'm serious. I would nurse her, then give her a bottle, and as soon as she was done with the bottle, she was rooting. And so I would nurse, and then she'd want more, so I'd give her a bottle, so on and so forth until she finally fell asleep in a milk drunk stupor. :) She keeps us busy, that's for sure!
Can I just tell you how much I hate shots?? (For me but especially for my baby.) I seriously had to fight back tears as she started crying. Dallin told me afterward that he almost walked out of the room. Please tell me we're not lame parents who are way too emotional about these kinds of things?? You should know we're kind of wimps though. We hate it when Claire cries. We instantly want to console her because we just want her happy. So we pick her up, rock her, sing to her, and she instantly stops crying and everyone is happy. And now she's spoiled. . . but that's beside the point.
She got 4 vaccines today. One was oral and then three were shots in the legs. Ouch. That needle looked vicious. I felt for her. She's been sleeping most of today but occasionally she'll wake up and just cry out. It's a new cry too. An "I'm hurting" cry. It just about breaks my heart every time I hear it. See? I'm a total wimp. Pathetic, I know. I swear I used to be tough. Having a baby made me way too emotional and wimpified. Yes, I just made up a new word.
On to happier things! Here are a few new pictures taken last night and today for your viewing pleasure.
