Well, Emmy got her first set of immunization shots since she got out of Presbyterian. She really did not like them at all…go figure! When she got her first hepatitus b shot she was still pretty sedated on phenobarbitol. She barely cried that time. Now that is she awake and alert she was much more vocal about her displeasure with the nurse and mommy! She was smiling and giggling before the shot went in and then her little face just went bright red and she screamed at the top of her lungs. I was amazed at how high pitched she got! It made me pretty sad! But she calmed down within 5 minutes.
She also got weighed today and is up to a whopping 8 lb. 4 oz. I was really excited! She’s gained 2 1/2 pounds in 4 weeks! That is a really good sign that she’s going to do great! Her oxygen level was also 97% which was better than mine or the nurse’s.
Emmy has been sleeping so well lately. We’ve already started her little night routine. At 9:30 she takes a little bath. Now i’m going to pause to talk about her bath. SHE LOVES THEM! She kicks and smiles and talks. I don’t think she knows that she is the one splashing but she loves when the splashes happen. There are some really cute bath pictures in the gallery! Anyway, at 10:00 she eats and watches simpsons with mom, dad and grandpa. Then she has family prayer and goes to bed. (she’s really pretty much asleep after she eats). She sleeps from 10:30 to 3:30 and then again from 4:00 to 7:30. The 5 hour period really helps me to feel more rested.
Emmy has also started to give real smiles now! They are a lot cuter than her normal “gas” smiles. When she gets happy she will open her mouth really wide and give a big toothless grin while she makes a little squaky laugh. She does it a lot when daddy plays with her! She likes to dance around with daddy and listen to the baby cd he bought for her. It is a lot of popular artists singing kids songs and it is really cute! Almost as cute as Emmy’s amazing smile!
