Wednesday morning Ellie went to the doctor for her first set of vaccinations. She's only 6 weeks old, but we'll be traveling during her 8th week of life, and her pediatrician wanted her to have some vaccines before flying on an airplane.
Here are her stats from our appointment:
Weight - 11 lbs, 0.5 oz, 79th percentile
Length - 23.25 inches, 94th percentile
Head circumference - 38cm, 54th percentile
Ellie did very well with her shots - she received one in each leg and I got to hear what her pain cry sounded like, but it was very brief and she recovered as soon as the nurse put her back in my arms. That's my girl!
But here's the sad part - we had to remove the newborn insert from her carseat!! It has to be removed once the baby is 11lbs or more - so I no longer have a newborn, just an infant. (sad face) She's growing so fast!! But she does seem to appreciate the extra legroom she has now that the insert is out.
