Grace had her 2 month "well check" dr's appointment yesterday and she did great!!! She weighs 8 lbs 8 oz and is 21 inches long. That puts her in the 5th percentile for "typical" kids and 50th percentile on the "ups" chart (they have a separate growth chart, milestone chart, etc for kids with "ups"). She also got her vaccinations and barely made a peep; I guess that was nothing for her compared to what she has been through! She was also a great object lesson last night for Abby and Andrew when we took off the band aids that were put on after her shots. Abby and Andrew are super drama when it comes to taking off band aids, so when they saw their little bitty Sister not fuss about it, I think they were inspired to be tougher next time :-). While I feel much better that Grace has received her first round of vaccinations, I'm still anxious about GERMS! Will you please pray for me? You know you are a germaphobe when your husband comes home to a strange over powering smell in the house thinking that it may be carbon monoxide or something, causing him to then go into the garage and dig out the carbon monoxide detector that we got probably a decade ago and hooked it up to ensure we weren't in any imminent danger. When I returned home and he told me his concern and how he handled it, I had to confess that no that wasn't carbon monoxide, but instead the result of a Mommy who LOVES Lysol spray!
We were blessed with BEAUTIFUL newborn photos of Grace by Laura Popiel! We have only seen one photo from the shoot so far, but I have to say that when I look at this photo it makes me want to cry with joy!
