QUICK Update

Hannah went to the pediatrician today. Here are her stats:

Weight: 11 lbs 14 oz
Length: 23 3/4 in.
Head circumference: 39.7 cm
Demeanor: ANGRY. They gave her a ton of vaccinations today...things like polio and roto virus and....I don't even know but she got stuck in BOTH of her thighs and she is super upset as a result. She screamed bloody murder and it broke my heart to see her in so much pain. I cursed Eric for making us get all these vaccinations and then not even being there, but that was only in my deepest oh-my-god-my-child-is-suffering-and-it-sucks mommy moment. I emerged a rational being, but the wee one did not. She hasn't really slept all day as a result, just catnaps for a bit and wakes up screaming. We are taking turns cuddling her and watching TV and being total lazy blobs/loving parents.

She is out back with Eric and MC right now--I thought the outdoors might calm her since it usually does but today, no such luck. Anyway, I snuck away to post her stats but I must be getting back to the little love bug now. More later.

This picture is from "later" (about an hour later). Hannah still won't nap unless she is safely snuggled in someone's arms. Here she is snuggled with Eric. We've spent the past hour looking for a movie on On Demand and just watching previews...this is so typical of us. We used to do this all the time and then we'd eventually get tired and go to bed having watched nothing...It's still early tonight so we may just pick something......

  1. What a cruel world for a little sweet one. Bless you and Eric for showering love on her. The cuddling apparently worked in the moment the picture was taken.
    Hugs and love to you all.

  2. When Esther got her first round of shots i swear as soon as they pricked her she turned right to me and gave me this look like "you have betrayed me. you were the only person i trusted to keep me safe from harm and here you are subjecting me to intense pain AND BY PERFECT STRANGERS WHO JUST TRIED TO GET ME TO SMILE!!! i will never trust anyone again!"

    and then she bawled for the rest of the day like she just realized that life has no meaning...

  3. hahahah!!! That is EXACTLY how I felt! I'm paranoid that she will always remember that I held her arms during the torture treatment and never forgive me...Damn these needles that go poking around itty bitty thighs!!
