Khloë is growing so fast! This week, during her two month check-up, she weighed in at 11 lb 13 oz and 23 1/4 inches long. Wow! I swear she has outgrown the majority of her 0-3 month sleepers overnight! There’s still a few in that range that fit, but we will be moving on to the next size pretty soon, I think. Our almost 12-pounder is in size 2 diapers now. Her 0-3 month shirts, onesies, and most pants still fit.
I’m loving her weekly photo with her Hello Kitty doll. It’s going to be amazing to look back at them when she’s a year old and see how fast she changed.
At her appointment this week, Dr K was concerned that Khloë wasn’t holding her head up well enough. Now, she’s only two months old and hates tummy time, but I agreed to increase her time on her belly so that she can develop more strength in her neck muscles. Personally, I’m not concerned as Khloë can hold her head up when I’m holding her against my chest. Our doctor isn’t a pediatrician, the closest would be in Ottawa, and she said that if there’s no improvement by mid-March she would refer us to CHEO. Later in the appointment she asked if I would allow another doctor to quickly examine the baby. I said yes. The other doctor thought Khloë was fine but that we should continue to help her develop her muscle strength.
The big item for the two month check-up was Khloë’s first needles. She was given the oral rotavirus vaccine, and while I nursed her she was given two other needles. The first needle only caused a whimper, but the second must have really hurt because she started wailing! And then got choking on her milk, which upset her even more. My poor girl! I felt awful and did my best to comfort her. She was upset for quite awhile, too. For the rest of the day she would cry randomly. She slept quite a bit, but didn’t develop a fever.
