We sent out our birth announcements on Monday...I was so happy with the way they turned out!

Yesterday Eloise and I went for her 6 week check up....she had to get her first round of shots...let's just say that both of us cried. I tried really hard not to shed any tears, but when you hear a cry that you have never heard before, and you know your baby is in pain, it is pretty darn hard! What made it worse was that I was holding her hands and she was just looking up at me crying with tears coming out of her eyes. We had a rough day after that. She was very sore, and she only wanted to be held all afternoon. I was totally fine with doing that.
Eloise has been doing great in the sleep department. We are now getting put down to go to dream land around 10-10:30 and she sleeps until 2-2:30. She then gets put back down around 2:30-3 and sleeps until 6:30-7:30. Of course, this routine will be slightly changed when she starts daycare next week as Walt leaves the house at 6:30 and he will be taking her to school. Hard to believe that I have less than a week left with my baby. It's been a great experience, and to know that I have 6 weeks left until summer makes it much easier for me to go back to school.
Here are Eloise's 6 week stats from yesterday:
Height: 21.3 inches Percentile: 50%
Weight: 9 pounds 9 ounces Percentile: 25-50%
Head Circumference: 14.9 Percentile: 25%
She's growing bigger every day! Here she is after she finished crying at the doctor's...poor baby...she cried herself straight to sleep.

i HATE those stupid shots! they are horrible. hank did ok with the 2 month ones, but 4 months he was SO SORE and cried all afternoon. my advice (i did this before the 6 month shots and it worked!) is give her tylenol while you are waiting on the doctor. i asked the nurse before i did it, because someone said that you aren't supposed to do that and i wanted to make sure, and she said it was fine. hank was a happy camper the entire day after shots that time! love the announcement and BRING ON SUMMER ;-)
