It is another gloomy day here in southern California. This morning Libi woke up with Daddy and spent some time with Grandpa Ippolito. Tobee's hips are giving her trouble so they refrained from walking this morning, but Grandpa came over for a cup of coffee with Daddy. Mommy enjoyed the few extra minutes of sleep.
Today we are keeping it low key, due to Libi's doctor's appointment this afternoon. I will hopefully get more Easter decorations up while Libs sleeps.
It has been such a nice restful day. Libi and I have had several lovely conversations. She is getting more smiley by the day and she totally knows that her Mommy is funny! This afternoon she took a nap nuzzled on top of me. There is nothing better than a baby sleeping on you-- that is until you have to use the restroom. Now Tobee, Libi and I are all laying on the sofa resting before our 4 p.m. doctor's appointment. Daddy should be home soon because I wouldn't go to this appointment alone-- Libi gets her first shots today. I will blog again once we return to let you know how much our little peanut has grown.
5:30 We just got back from the doctor's office. We sat for quite a while in the lobby before Dr. Vashishta saw us. Libi didn't cry when we put her on the scale-- she now weighs 9 lbs. 6 oz. and she is 22 3/4 inches long. Dr. V. said after the examination that she was "perfect"-- she is developing just as a little girl should. Then it was time for the S-H-O-T-S-- she had 4, two in each leg and one oral! She cried and yelled, but not as much as we thought she would. When it was all over, Ron and I comforted her and brought her home.
We have now given her her first dose of Tylenol to hopefully stave off any fever and she is eating. We will continue the Tylenol and the loving throughout the night. After dinner and American Idol we will all settle in for a restful night's sleep.
