Bryan’s 2 month visit

Filed under: family,life in general — Tags: — Crystal @ 12:49 pm

Bryan had his 2 month visit today. 4 shots and one oral vaccine. The oral on is new. Celeste doesn’t even have that one. It is for Rotavirus (Click here for info).   The others are:  Dtap (diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis), Hib #1 (Haemophilus influenzae type b),, Polio(IPV), hepatitis B (hib b), Pneumococcal Conjugate (PCV).  He did ok. He is really fussy now, but that’s it. He is getting Tylenol around the clock for the next 24 hours. He is now a chunky 12 lbs 12 oz and 22 in long. That puts him into the 25th percentile for height and 75th percentile for weight. Up 25% for weight and down 25% for height from the last visit. Which would be why he fits into clothing funny. The 3-6 stuff fits because of his weight, but it is all to long because of his height. The 0-3 stuff mostly fits, but there is a couple of one piece outfits that are a bit snug. I also exchanged a package of size one diapers for size two today. Size two is 12 lbs to 16 lbs… I thought that the size ones were
getting a bit tight!

Mother’s Day was great. I got a really cute necklace with 4 people on it to signify the whole family. Each little person charm has a matching birth stone built into the body.

Now to finish up the house for the playgroup here this Thursday and the game party on Saturday! Yea!

Growing up and electrocution!

Filed under: family — Tags: , , — Crystal @ 1:28 pm

It seems as though switching Celeste to a toddler bed has made her grow up so fast! Her vocabulary has increased tons since then (including saying Bryan and iovu (i love you)), when it is time for bed now she runs and gets in all by herself and waits for us to put her blanket on her, she has even shown interest in the potty! Our first baby is turning into a little lady! It is bittersweet.

I’m SO lucky.. I was moving Bryan’s old red lamp that had temporarily been put on his dresser while Alan and his dad built Bryan’s crib and the plastic case on the outside of the plug head came off and I ended up touching both of the metal contacts and electrocuting myself… I can only imagine what would have happened if he was older or Celeste had pulled it and they got shocked.. needless to say I’m off to check all my plugs.. I just wanted to share so that you all with children would do the same too!
