2 month well baby check-up

Today Kaidence had her appointment.
Dr E said she is doing very good! :)
She smiles, coos, follows movements with her eyes, turns towards sounds, and can push off when he stands her up.

He said she is not slacking on the eating part, either!
She now weighs 12 pounds, 12 ounces!
When she was born she was 7 pounds, 4 ounces.
She has almost DOUBLED her birth weight in 9 weeks & 2 days!
Now she is 23.25 inches long..at birth she was 21.5 inches!
Her head is 16 inches now..at birth it was 13.5 inches!

She got two shots today..
Pentacil & PCU!
Also she had to drink something for Rotavirus.

She pitched a FIT because the nurse couldn't get the second shot in her leg right..so she had to re-do it! :(
She screamed & screamed!!!
Since she pitched such a fit she spit up most of the drink :(

We are all done until her 4 month appointment Jan 20th! :)

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not decide to pack the DAY before we're going to our family's for Thanksgiving. Not Me!

I did not decide that me & Kaidence would have a pajama day so I could pack. Not Me!

I did not argue with Josh that we would have enough formula until Tuesday only to RUN OUT today. Not Me!

I did not put a headband on Kaidence just to go pick up formula because I absolutely HATE for people to say she's a "CUTE BOY" even though she wears pink. Not Me!

I did not miss the biggest cutest smile because I couldn't find my camera in Kaidence's junky diaper bag. Not Me!

I did not decide to come home and walk even though I still have to pack. Not Me!

I did not put Kaidence's swing in the yard and bundle her all up just so I could wash my filthy car. Not Me!

I did not only get half of my car washed because Kaidence pitched a fit because she was SWEATING underneath all these blankets & hats. Not Me!

I did not pack all Kaidence's 0-3 month outfits for a 5 day trip. Not Me!

I do not still have to pack mine AND Josh's suitcases. Not Me!
I am not sitting here typing this and watching ARTHUR instead of packing. Not Me!
Hope you all enjoyed our "NOT ME MONDAY!"

It was fun, be we waited for about an hour in line.
So we took a few extra pictures

Two Months Old!

Kaidence - You are TWO months old today!

What are you up to these days???
  • You weigh around 12 lbs - 13 pounds
(you're 2 month well check-up is Tuesday the 24th!)
  • You wear a size 2 diaper
  • You are wearing 0-3 months and 3 months clothes

  • You love to sit up
  • You got a new swing from Grammie & PawPaw and you LOVE it! You swing pretty much all day
  • You LOVE to eat!!! You take 3-4 ounces every 3 hours. You don't wait one minute past 3 hours! It's like perfect clock work!
  • You are starting to coo and smile now

  • You are already a BIG daddy's girl!
  • You love bath time with daddy because he sings the "Bath Song"
  • You love to be outside. We rock on the front porch most every afternoon around 5 while you take your bottle.
  • You love to SHOP! ;o) You seem so amazed with all the lights & noise at the stores.

  • You still love your paci! I've caught you trying to suck your thumb some, too! It looks silly because it's so small between those two big cheeks :o) ... But, I stop you everytime I see you sucking it! Pacis are much easier to take away, because it's not like I can cut your thumb off! ;o)
  • You don't mind hairbows until you get upset! Then you snatch them off and usually try to eat it.
  • You are suppose to have tummy time everday, but you only have about 3 minutes. You would have more, but you pitch SUCH a F-I-T!!!
  • Dr E says it's ok though because you have very STRONG neck muscles! You are always holding that head up which makes it very hard to burp you.

  • Mommy & Daddy love you very much!

Christmas goodies give-away

So, I just entered a give away for THE cutest Christmas goodies from The Roland's.
Hope we win this one :)
I love Christmas & can't wait until the Saturday after to start decorating around here!

Thankful Thursday

How cute is that little bottom? And, those back rolls :)
We are ATTEMPTING to do some pictures for Christmas cards.
But, Kaidence decided against that!

Instead she wants to suck her paci & cover her face!
I can't IMAGINE how hard it will be to photograph her once she starts crawling or walking!

And, here's another one I think I may use for her Christmas card..
Instead of the vocal being pink, do red.

I'm going to try to get some better ones after she naps and takes her next bottle.

Random Over-due Post

Nothing too exciting has happened...
we have been just planning how we are going to do Thanksgiving this year.
And, Kaidence's Nana, Aunt Amy, and Cousin Wendy & Savannah came down this weekend :)
We had so much fun shopping
Even Kaidence did...

The first two we were in Petrie's aka Kaidence's FAVORITE store! ;)
The third was in Baby Gap! Doesn't she just look too cute in the beanie?
It had a matching penguin shirt, jean mini skirt, & leggings :)

Even though we have been to TONS of places looking, we haven't found Kaidence a Thanksgiving outfit ANYWHERE!
So, I'm going to make her a tutu & I have made a cute design to iron on a onesie for her:

I'm she she will just be a doll in whatever she wears :o)

We are planning to go visit some of her cousins in Pace, FL this weekend.
Her cousin JoAnna Grace is only a few months older than her ... I can't wait for them to grow up & be Favorite Cousins! :)

Kaidence also has her TWO MONTH check up Tuesday.
I can't believe she is going to be two months Friday! :(
She is just growing up way too fast!

I will post a two-month update blog Friday!
