2 Month Shots

Josie went for her 2 month shots yesterday. Poor little girl! She done very well though. She weighs 11 lbs 12 oz and is 23.5 in long already. Growing like a weed. Her skill level measured 4 month 2 weeks. So she is a smart little girl already! :-)

Dr Malone is having me put cereal in her bottles now to see if that will help her with spit up. We started that yesterday when we got back from the doctor. She didn't seem to spit up as much but she is having trouble getting it to come out of the bottle. Course it might just be she is tired from those shots or not hungry. Time will tell.

Here's a pic I took on Sunday when she turned 2 months. I can't believe how much she is growing. Before we know it she'll be crawling! I can't wait. They are so fun when they are active. I know I'll be saying otherwise when the time comes but for now I'm excited for it.

Me on the other hand, haven't been doing very well. I know I'm gonna get better but I so can not wait! I feel like I'm missing out on stuff because I don't feel good. I finally got the doctor to do something yesterday though. He changed my antidepressant and put me on an anti-anxiety med. I took my first one of those this morning. I didn't have an anxiety attack this morning. Just felt a little mopey. I come out of it in the afternoon and the evening and almost feel like myself. This postpartum depression stuff is pretty scary! It's really hard to explain how it feels. I just hope these pills start kicking in and it starts getting better real soon. Like I've told everyone, hit me with a hammer, I know how to deal with that pain. This stuff I don't know how to deal with! Mike and my parents have been awesome! I know I'm wearing everyone out but if they will all just hang in there with me then I'll be great. Nothing replaces your Dad & Mom when you feel this way. Not even your husband even though he tries so hard! I'm just ready to be myself. So Josie can know her real Mom!
