Backtracking: Aubrey’s 2 month well check

On April 3rd we took Aubrey in for her 2 month well check. It was just me and the girls crammed in to a small room. Ella did awesome, just hung out waiting for her turn to be seen. Ella, was into EVERYTHING!
Aubrey weighed in at 10 lbs. 0.1oz, which was the 27th percentile
Was 23″ long, 76th percentile
and I don’t remember the exact head measurement but it was the 59th percentile.
Ella at 2 months was 10lbs 8 oz and 22.5 inches long, 50th percentile for both. So Aubrey is long and lean compared to Ella at that stage.
Aubrey was all happy and smiley until shots. My least favorite part! I dread shots. And to top it off, while she was getting her shots and I had to hold her poor little arms down, Ella was busy pulling the trash bag out of the trash can and there was nothing anyone could do to stop her.
After the 1st shot on the 2nd leg, Aubrey just stopped crying and gave me this look like, “Is this ever going to end?”
I gave her some ty.len.ol when we got home as our neighbors 4 month old was miserable after his 4 month vaccinations. Well, that didn’t help. After about an hour of napping she woke up inconsolable! It was so sad, Ella never had a bad time after shots. Aubrey screamed constantly for about 40 minutes, she didn’t want to nurse, she just wouldn’t calm down. Her poor little thighs. She was like this until the next morning, we had to give her another 2 doses of medicine!
I hope her 4 months vaccines aren’t as rough on her!
