Shameless Exploitation of Cute

I took Phoebe to the pediatrician last Thursday and she’s doing just great. She’s up to 12-1/2 pounds and is 23-1/2 inches long – in the 85th percentile where she’s been since she was born.

We’re eating 3-4 ounces every 2-1/2 to 3 hours and we mostly sleep through the night (well until 4:30 or 5AM but since we get up at 5, I think it counts).

While we were there, Phoebe got shots – a lot of them! I was nervous about this. I was allergic to the DTP as a child and ran such high fevers that I never completed the whole course. As a result, I got whooping cough when I was 12 – not a fun experience. And that fun continues a long time – they don’t tell you that the “whoop” can continue for the rest of your life. For example, I got a bad case of bronchitis back in the spring and started coughing really bad – yep, you guessed it, I started “whooping”. It hurts like hell and when I was a kid, it scared me really badly.

Phoebe got her shots and hasn’t had any kind of reaction. Not even a little spike in temp… The DTP has been replaced with DTaP which is supposed to have a lot fewer reactions.

And now, the shameless exploitation part. Moo got me a flip video camera as a shower present and I’ve been having fun capturing little parts of Phoebe’s day.

You’ll see more cute later this week… too much might run your blood sugar up too much!
