Time flies when you get no sleep

My little Navy Bean is now 2 months old. I can't believe it. She has changed so much in such a short period of time. She has almost complete control over her head, unless she's really tired. She loves to stare at people and she recognizes me and probably Wes. She turns her head to see where noises are coming from. She can track things with her eyes. She loves to smile and coo and talk and she's starting to laugh. And boy, she can move those little arms and legs! I'm also afraid that her beautiful hair is starting to thin out. I hope that it grows back in the same color.

We had our 2 month check-up this morning. She now weighs 10 lbs and 12 oz. I thought the nurse said she was 23 3/4 inches long, but she wrote down 22 3/4 inches. Overall, they said she looked really good. She also got shots and instead of waiting for an hour at the pharmacy to get Children's Tylenol, since I had some at home, I left. Stupid me. The box says, for children under 2 years old, give as directed by doctor. So I have no idea how much I'm supposed to give her and feel like a horrible mother. Then I racked my brain trying to figure out who to call, you know, who might know. Like someone who just had a baby, or maybe even two? So, Sandi or David, how much Tylenol do I give a 10.12 lbs. baby? Although, it's been 4 hours since she got the shots, and she doesn't have a fever yet. She hasn't really woken up yet either though. I did wake her up to eat, so she is still alive.

You didn't tell me there would be shots!!!

The kids were here until last Friday. And then Wes left yesterday for the week. He'll be in school for 8 weeks, only coming home on the weekends. The house is a mess. I need to pay bills. I'm behind on my e-mails, blog readings, phone calls, errands, and all that other stuff. I'm expecting to stay behind. Although, it is wonderful to have a completely quiet house!

Check your cell phone. I left you a message. Not Children's.....INFANT'S Tylenol....or like the Kroger brand version (cheaper)....first mark on the droppper. We have a sheet from our doctor that gives milestone marks that Sandi said she could send to you...after she scans it and emails it....after her paper is done...on Wednesday. Any questions? Call. Hope Navy Bean feels better.
