I wanted to post Anna’s stats from today…
Age: 2 months, 1 day
Weight: 13 lb 5.5 oz (95th percentile)
Length: 24.5 inches (OFF THE CHART – no percentile for that – ha!)
Head circumference: 40.3 cm (95th percentile)
So goes my statement that she isn’t fat… she’s hardly chubby! (She is chubby but not as chubby as Raven was as a baby!) The doctor said that her body is just trying to keep up with her height… which explains the 6 month clothes needed for length reasons and yet she can still wear 0 – 3 month clothes around the weight… she’s just… long. She’s longer than she is big. But because she is so long, she feels big! Either way, I think she’s robust to keep up with her sisters… :)
Otherwise Anna’s appointment went really well. The doctor wants me to start bottle training her during the day (and pumping instead of breastfeeding) so that her transition to daycare isn’t so traumatic, and while I don’t like the idea because of the inconvenience of it, I can’t help but agree as she’s very Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde with the bottle. Anna starts daycare two weeks from today.
Anna received three shots today and one vaccine via mouth/liquid. She did really well… screamed like a banshee as expected, but recovered fairly quickly and had a really good day today.
Anyway… that’s some on Anna. Woohoo!
