2 months old

Fuss is 2 months old today and she had to get 4 shots and one oral vaccine. She was traumatized and I'm thinking of looking into the possibility of having them spread out the next round when she's 4 months. It seems like she's so miserable and if there is a reaction, how would they know which one she reacted to? All I can say is thank heaven for Tylenol Infant Drops - they saved my life and sanity this afternoon. She slept most of the afternoon and into the evening, but when she was awake, she was screaming in pain until the drops kicked in. I'll be giving her the preventative doses in the future and will be following the suggestion of giving her the allowable dose for 24-hours after the vaccinations.

She is 12lbs, 5.5oz - we knew she'd been growing big, but now she's in the league with average 3-month olds!

I had to do the appointment by myself again, even though I'd originally planned to have my mother join me. She had to work and couldn't get out of it, and I didn't know exactly how bad it was, or I would have asked Mr. Moose to join me for the appointment. His schedule should be more flexible for the 4-month appointment, so I hope he'll be available to go with us. I'll be back at work then, but we're discussing making an afternoon appointment and both taking a half day off of work to take her to her appointment and take care of her afterwards.

She ate really well today, despite the trauma and I'm wondering if her little body knows it needs it's strength to counteract and recover. She ate for 41 minute this evening, for example - something she's done before, but not recently and not very often.

We have another busy today tomorrow with two events throughout the day. We are simply hoping that she does alright through them, but neither is a situation where we can't leave if we need to.
