3 month girl

Ashley had her 3 month check-up/shots today. She's tall 24 3/4 inches long, and petite... 12 lbs, 5 oz. Some of her 0-3 month pants are still too big in the waist for her to wear yet.

Travis, by contrast was 15 lbs, 9 oz, and 26 inches long at 3 months. But, he also started out almost an entire pound bigger than she was at birth.

Anyway, she's a peanut, despite the fact that she eats ALL the time. She had two shots today, Prevnar (for pneumonia), and HIB. Our new Doc follows Dr. Sears' Alternative Vaccination Schedule. In a nutshell, fewer vaccines at one tome, only 1 "live" vaccine at a time, mercury-free, and as few combo-vaccines as possible.

So, basically, that was the extent of her appointment, since we didn't have a physical this time. Next month she will, though.

We officially cannot put her down on the floor without her flipping over on her stomach, and getting stuck "reverse turtle" style. She still has not figured out how to get from her stomach to her back. Poor thing gets so frustrated... She's also trying to flip herself out of her swing or the bouncer... she's buckled in of course!

One of my friends generously offered us their Exersaucer after I mentioned I was going to go to the resale shop to look for one. So woohoo! It's been through a few kids, and doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the newer ones, but I am more than happy to borrow it, and pass it along after we are through with it. SO, I think next week, I will arrange pick-up of it.

Anyway, my dad is here... so I will check in soon...

She looks really chubby in her photos though, that is all that matters :). Gavin was always really short until recently. He was only 24 inches at 4 months.
I can't believe she is already rolling over! She's just growing up way to fast!
