I am sure that many of you are wondering how the 2-month check-up went this morning. In a brief summary, it could not have gone better. First the stats:
Height: 24 1/2 inches (95th percentile)
Weight: 11 lbs. 11 oz. (55th percentile)
Head Circumference: 39 cm (42nd percentile)
The doctor said that Anna Kate looks absolutely healthy and was impressed at how well she could hold up her head while lying on her stomach. Anna Kate was so well behaved during the examination. Then came the three shots and the oral medication, which was the part that I was most worried about. Anna Kate cried pretty loudly and stared at me with a look that would break your heart. However, as soon as I was able to pick her up and hold her, she calmed right down. In fact, she did not cry another tear after that. The nurse was amazed at how well she handled the shot. Here is a post-vaccination photo where she was having some playtime (notice the two Wile E. Coyote band-aids):
In other news, we have been inundated with pollen this past week, so Anna Kate and I have not been able to go on many walks or spend anytime outside. For those that do not live in the southeast and wonder how bad could this pollen actually be, here is a picture of my grill cover on Wednesday:
However, last night we had some good rain showers that washed away the pollen, which means we can get outside of the house more. The seminary campus is beautiful this time of year and downtown Wake Forest is nice as well so I am sure we will have some more photos to come next week!
