Two Month Shots and Stats
Weight: 9 lb. 8 oz.--5th percentile
Height: 21 1/2 inches--5th percentile
She is actually the same height that Heidi was and a little less than a pound heavier. Oh how we love this little angel. She really has such a mild little temperament and she just gives the sweetest little grins! She was all smiles at the doctor, which of course only made me feel worse about the shots.
I was so hesitant even to take her in because of how bad the flu is this year and apparently they are now seeing a huge outbreak in RSV...awesome. Thank you so, so, so much to Jeff's mom who came up and watched Heidi so she wouldn't have to come along and touch every single thing at the doctor's office. Heidi had been asking for her grandma a ton lately so it was so fun for her to see grandma.
Savanna is healthy and growing and developing right on track. The doctor did however confirm my suspicions that she is suffering from silent reflux. Her little throat is red and has sores from the acid and she is starting to retain fluid in her ears. The doctor couldn't believe what a calm baby she is for having reflux. Hopefully she will outgrow it soon and in the meantime she prescribed some medicine in hope of keeping acid levels down so she doesn't get ear infections. Hopefully it will help her sleeping a little too, but really if it will just make her more comfortable and keep her from getting ear infections I will be thrilled. We love sweet little Vanny Vans!
