Two-month Checkup

Macy had her two-month checkup on Tuesday and checked out fine! She got her first round of vaccinations - one oral and three injections. :( Not too many tears were shed. She cried for all of about two minutes and was asleep by the time we pulled out of the parking lot.

She is growing! Here's her stats:
Weight: 12 lbs 13 oz (80%)
Length: 23 inches (50%)
Head circumference: 40 cm (75%)

Burin is always commenting that Macy looks older than two months, and he attributes it to her face looking more mature than other two-month olds. Dr. Ellison even made a comment about how she looks older than two months!

She can almost hold her head up completely now, and is on her way to rolling over.. she just can't quite get her arm out from under her. She'll probably be walking by the time she's six months :D

Anyway, she goes back in July for her four-month checkup and second round of shots.

Why I Love My Refrigerator

(click to enlarge if you feel so inclined)

I love going to my refrigerator. Why? Not because of what's in it (well... sometimes), but because of what's on it. I recently got out my ACEO collection and bought some of those magnet frames and stuck some on my fridge, collage-esque. I figured, what good are they doing in a binder where I can't see them? I love these little things. Tiny, affordable works of art. I think I'll be hitting up Etsy again soon to add to my collection. Wouldn't it be awesome to have my whole fridge covered with these? And if you haven't noticed, I seem to have a little theme going on....

I'll let you guess which one of these I made myself. ;)

The two chicks on the right are graduating this year! Congrats Nanci-Taylor and Courtnay!

Mother's Day and Fun With Iron-ons

I had a great weekend/first Mother's Day visiting with friends and family! Macy had a little fever and was not feeling too well though, poor baby. :(

I thought I'd get a little creative, if you will, and bought some iron-on letters and made an "I luv Dot" onesie. I printed off a picture and put it in a 'grandma's brag book' for my mom for Mother's Day. I going to do the same for Pop (my dad) and put a picture in a frame for Father's Day next month!

Macy is two months old today! I'll do a two-month update after her appointment on Wednesday to get her shots. That is, if she'll be able to get them since she's been having fever (again today).
