****Baby E had his first baby check up today! He's doing well and already above birth weight (despite the fact that he went potty and probably lost a pound on the scale b/c the nurse was being wayyyy too slow--btw--obviously a nurse w/o children as she looked horrified =).
He's up to 7 pounds 12 ounces! Grow baby grow! ****
Or, even more importantly--SLEEP baby SLEEP--especially during the hours of 12-5 sometime soon.
(Seriously though, I'd even settle for any 3 consecutive hours between the hours of 9 and 7.)
****Moving on....I did something I've never done before in all my Mommy life.****
I opted not to get a vaccine.
I'm pro-vaccine in life but today after waiting for 40 minutes in the tiny patient room with a sweetly sleeping E, who has already had a pretty big week in being born, circumcised and learning how to eat, potty and deal with life on the outside, I just couldn't make him deal with a shot that treats a disease that people who share needles suffer from.
So, he'll have to deal with good ol' hep. b when he's 4 or something--Sorry E, you may remember that shot but I just couldn't do it today!
****In other news, THE VERY WORST PART about the day was the fact that:****
a) it was my first post-pregnancy outing
b) nothing fits
It. was. dreadfully discouraging.
All of my maternity clothes look ridiculous and stretched out and all of my regular clothes look like a 6 month pregnant lady is trying to make them work. Oh my word--it's horrible!!! I need something new s.t.a.t. or I'm going to opt out of going anywhere ever ever again.
That's it for now, I"m going to go console my fashion-less self with the most beautiful baby boy and remind myself that I'd do it a million times again just for one whiff of his baby forehead.
