Sephira's 2 Month Checkup

Sephira had her 2-month checkup today.

Dr. Hokari reports that she is a healthy, beautiful girl...which we already knew! And Sephira weighed in at 13 pounds 14 ounces (in the 97th percentile), 23 inches in length (75th percentile), and a 39 centimeter head circumference (50th percentile). Big girl!!

Today was also the start of her immunization shots. We are doing a reduced immunization schedule, so today she received her first shots for DTap (Diphtheria, Tetanus (Lockjaw), and Pertussis (Whooping Cough)), Hib (Meningitis), and her first oral dose of the Rotavirus vaccine (severe diarrhea in babies and young children).

Let's just say she didn't like the shots at all!

She was a good girl though, and didn't fuss long. Maybe 5 minutes. She fell fast asleep as soon as we left the Dr's office, until we returned home 3 hours later. She had no desire to eat, so Mommy and Sephira took another nice long nap together. Her thigh did swell a bit from the shots, and she has continued to fuss a bit during the later part of the evening...but who can blame her. Even now she's quickly back to sleep - recovering from the ordeal!
