First of all I had no idea that babies get shots at every appointment until 18mos. I'm kind of glad I didn't dread these shots for two months. Ironically, she wore her "Super Happy Girl" onesie to the appointment.
She weighs 12lbs 4oz which 50th percentile and is 24in long which is 56th percentile. Not bad for a 5lb premie on breast milk alone.
She was very excited by the scope he used to check her eyes and thought he was funny in general. She didn't even flinch at the first shot and was done crying about the second one by the time we got to the parking lot. Smiley Riley, what a trooper.
He also gave us (his words) "the yellow light" (as in proceed with caution) on solids. Deep breath mamma, baby is growing up. He even said we don't have to start with baby cereal which is a relief because she only gets one bottle a day and I don't want to mix her one bottle with that tasteless sludge. I think we'll start with a couple spoon fulls of bananas in the evening and see how it goes.
Also, the mysterious bump on the back of her head is another hemangioma between her skull and her scalp. It's apparently as harmless as the one on her belly and should break down around the same time. Sounds pretty icky to me, but it's very common and harmless. I know it's shallow, but I'm glad it's not on her pretty face.
