One Month Already!

It is so hard to believe that a month has already passed since Evelyn was born!  I have always heard people say how fast time flies - now I'm beginning to understand it!  She had her one-month check up today as well, and is doing great!

Her 1-month statistics:
Weight:  8 pounds, 13 ounces (13 oz since 2-wks, 5 ounces over her birth weight) - 50th percentile
Length:  20 1/2 inches (1 inch since 2-wks, 1 3/4 inch since birth) - 25th percentile
Head circumference:  I didn't catch it this week (Evelyn peed all over when she was measuring this, so I was attending to that!)

She also had to have her second dose of the Hepatitis B vaccination today.  She took it like a champ!  When the nurse gave her the shot, she scream-cried for less than 10 seconds, then quivered her bottom lip for about 10 seconds (while looking at me as if to say, "why did you let them do that, Mom?!"), then took a big 'ol sigh and was content as could be.  I, on the other hand, was doing everything I could to hold it together so that I could get to the car and bawl!  I am so not looking forward to next month when she gets 4 new shots!

Being Mom of the Year that I already am...I completely forgot to take a one-month picture of her today (we are doing weekly shots each Sunday, I feel a little better!).  I did take this one early in the day to send to my parents for their 37th wedding anniversary...

90210 is something my parents have taught each of us as a relationship/life principle...always give 90% to take 10%

I had planned on taking a better 'hey guys, I'm one today' picture later in the day, but Evelyn was pretty fussy and sleepy after her shot.
