2 months

Ilya had her two month check-up on Monday. Our doctor never tells us the percentiles that she is in, but I’m sure if you are interested, you could look them up online. She weighed in at 13 pounds and was 24 inches long. Her thrush has officially cleared up and she is just as healthy as can be. This was a hard appointment for Adam and I because we had to decide which vaccines to give her. Normally at the two month check-up they get 8 shots! That seams like a lot for a little baby’s system, plus there is all this controversy over the link between vaccines and autism. Now, I’m not saying that I believe it, but I’m not sure that I don’t believe it. There are just so many things to worry about. We talked about all the different vaccines options with our doctor before deciding to give her just one of the vaccines now. We will probably end up giving her the other vaccines later, we just wanted to wait on them a little while since they didn’t seam to be as urgent (Hep B, for example – I didn’t get that vaccine until I was 16 years old). I don’t know if we made the right decision or the wrong decision, I just know that it was the decision that I felt comfortable with. I know all the pros and cons – I think I have done more research on this issue than I did on some of my college papers. Ilya was so brave when she got the shot. She only cried for a minute then was fine for the rest of the evening. I know I’ve said it before, but I really lucked out. I have the most perfect little baby.
