Princess Magpie

We had Princess Magpie up for her shots today. She was a little sick when she was supposed to get them (the same thing happened for her last shots) so they had been postponed until today. She handled it well but I felt awful. My poor baby was crying and looking at us, as if to say, "Why did you do that???"

On the good side, she weighs 22 lbs now and is 28.7 inches long. That means that she falls into the following percentiles:
Length = between percentile 75 and 90
Weight = in percentile 90

I knew she was a big girl! The nurse said she looks much older than a 9 month old baby. I completely agree, she is so big but also she just acts older. I keep trying to convince her to be a bay longer, but she is having no part of it and is growing at full speed ahead with no sign of slowing down.

She came home, fell asleep and slept for about 3 hours! Poor baby. She is such a good girl though. So sweet and cuddly. Mmmm . . . . I am in love with my baby, can you tell??

Alicia always looked and acted older than she was/is too. People were always surprised to hear she was around a year younger than they think. :)

Nothing sweeter than a healhty, happy baby! Oh, and the shots totally break my heart too!
