A tough week

Jane has had kind of a tough week. She's been dealing with some congestion that makes it hard for her to sleep, and then yesterday she had her two-month shots. The congestion isn't too big of a deal. It really only bothers her when she's laying on her back, so we've had her sleep sitting up the past couple of nights. I'm thankful that she's on breast milk, which I'm sure is to be credited for the fact that she's not sicker than she is. Her daycare provider even said as much. It is nice to have her support on that! I've heard horror stories about daycare providers trying to push formula and rice cereal on parents.
Her two-month appointment went well. Well, it's more like two-and-a-half months. Originally her appointment had been scheduled for a week ago, but it worked better for us to do it yesterday so we were a little behind. Jane now weighs 13 pounds, 12 ounces, and is 25 inches long. A very healthy girl, in the 95th percentile for weight and 100th percentile for height! She handled the shots relatively well. We had given her a little acetaminophen ahead of time, so she really wasn't even crabby afterward. She screamed bloody murder when the shots were given, of course. She had a little more acetaminophen before bed and slept well, but was feeling pretty rotten this morning and was running a slight temperature. Hopefully she'll be feeling better soon. We'd hate to have a sad girl on Christmas!
