Free at Last

Tuesday (6/7) marked Kylee being two months old.  On one hand it is hard to believe that she is already that old and on the other hand it feels like she was born yesterday.  If she was born on her original due date of May 28, she would only be eleven days old at this point.  Seeing as we brought her home before her due date, it has us thrown all out of whack.

Today was Kylee's two-month check-up and we are happy to report that all is well.  Kylee now weighs 7 pounds 6 ounces (3.345 kilograms) and is 20.25 inches (51.43 centimeters) long.  Kylee enjoyed her visit with the doctor up and to the point that it was time to get vaccinated.  Kylee got three different shots this afternoon which she took like a champ...well...that is if you disregard the screaming and crying.  Honestly, I'm not sure if Kylee or Natalie cried more during the shots, but that's a separate issue.....hahahahaha.

Now that Kylee has gotten her shots, we were "released" from captivity and are free to take her out like a normal baby.  Obviously, Kylee is supposed to avoid sick people....but I'm fully grown and I avoid sick people that isn't that big of a deal.

For Kylee's first outing, she made an appearance at church.  Tonight was the last night of Vacation Bible School and the environment was more relaxed.  We carried Kylee around in her car seat from presentation to presentation while she slept soundly.  Everyone was glad to see her and we were glad to be able to bring her with us.

Tonight has been slightly more challenging as Kylee has been extra fussy after getting poked three times this afternoon.  She got her shots in the thighs and those are somewhat tender for now.  We were finally able to put her to bed, but Natalie swears that Kylee is more restless than normal and is horrified about how the rest of tonight will go.

I know I have said numerous times before, but we really appreciate the love and support we have received during the past few months.  Now that we can travel at will, we can't wait for everyone to meet Miss Kylee!!
