weight- 9 pounds 11 oz (I know not a great number)
length- 22 inches (3 inches since her birth)
head circumference- 14 1/2
So basically for her height and weight she is in the 25th percentile, and her head is in the 10th percentile. But the doctor says that was what she was since the beginning and she just keeps on growing- he calls her in the petite category.
Not only did we get these stats but she had to get a whole lot of shots: Hep B, Hib, DTap, and Polio. Now she did great. She of course didn't like the nurse pushing on her legs so she couldn't move, and then she gave a surprised face and then screamed, but what surprised me the most was that I started to cry a little. I mean of course I love my baby, but she was in so much pain, but it was suppose to be good for her, so I had to let it happen, and so I couldn't help but cry. The nurse was sweet and let me hold my baby for a long time in stead of kicking me out of the room.
Josie was pretty much tired and wanted to sleep the rest of the day, she ate very little which made me nervous and she did fever. I read and watched on the news that studies are now saying don't give babies tylenol before the vaccine but after instead. So I waited for a fever to come and it came. I felt even worse when I came home to a freezing home (our diesel ran out, and so I had to wait for a guy to fill up our diesel tank and wait for our house to heat up from 65 degreees..bbrrrrr).
needless to say I was more than willing to hold my daughter and comfort her for two days straight until she got back to feeling normal!
Josie and Mom!
