9 weeks! First Shots, Growth report, Visit, and Some pics...

Twas an intense day, this first day of Caroline's 9th week. She had her first shots today. She handled them beautifully. She got righteously mad just after the shots (which were done VERY quickly and graciously), but she didn't get as mad as she is capable of getting and she calmed pretty quickly. Kev has said more than once today that he truly swelled with pride at what a trooper his daughter was. She had a meltdown as I was changing her in the Whole Foods restroom (had to run a quick errand after the ped appt.) and has had a few other intense times today. We're just giving her lots of love and she's coming through it.

She is now 10 pounds 8 ounces, and 23 and 1/4 inches. I anticipate a big surge by 10 weeks as she definitely seems to be in a growth spurt right now.

The intense day had a lovely end though as Pa and Abuelita arrived! They are delighting in her in all her many moods!

Oh, and the dresser is together, the clothing rewashed, and it is GORGEOUS.

Tomorrow is supposed to be quite warm (almost 70!) and we're hoping to take Caroline for her first hike. We tried to do so last week only to find that the road was blocked to the lake at which we hoped to hike. So... tomorrow, elsewhere, we'll try again. Perhaps we'll have pics from that to share.

Oh boy, I remember the early days of using our pinky fingers to soothe a fussy baby... (Though we turned the pinky upside down -- not so comfy on the wrist after a while!).

Those shots always seem to be more upsetting to us than they are to the babes. :(
