Just a little pin prick, there'll be no more aaaah, but you may feel a little sick

Yesterday Miss Olivia Nutley had her first set of immunizations. Sam and I took her took her to a medical clinic in Surrey amid the freezing cold temperatures outside. Once inside she was weighed and measured. We realized we hadn't seen her weight in a while and it was shocking to see that she has gained quite a bit since her last appointment. She is now 11 lbs. 8 oz. I hope she isn't mad that I'm posting her weight to the public. Oh well, she'll get over it.

After that, a nurse brought us into a room and explained all of the disease's that were covered in these three needles and any possible side effects.

Then Sam cried.

The nurse explained that she needed to tell us all of the information so that we were aware and could monitor her for any complications. I was handed the baby being inducted as the official "holder of the baby during shots". The nurse did all 3 in about 8 seconds. She cried and screamed a little (Livi not the nurse) but overall it wasn't too bad. After it was done I stood up and held her against my chest (once again Livi not the nurse). She settled down and we were all done.

After leaving the office we drove over to Nana Nutley's work and visited with the ladies of the FVREB. Then it was time for a lunch out and a return home.

Livi did well and we didn't see any signs of complications (KOW).

Ready for my closeup.....

Photos from Livi's photoshoot have arrived and we love them. A big thank you once again to Jeanie at stu-di-o for the amazing pictures. I'll upload them to my Google album tonight for anyone to look at or you can check them out on Facebook.

Liv is doing very well. She's constantly talking in her baby language and smiling all the time. She's also getting into a good sleeping/eating routine. She eats more at a time but less times a day. We couldn't be more lucky about her sleeping habits too (KOW). Liv goes to sleep around 8:30pm and usually doesn't wake up until 7am. Perfect little angel.

She's got her first immunizations this Thursday and we're not looking forward to that. Hopefully she doesn't scream too loud.

Other than that nothing to report. A very happy little family here.

Lost in Translation

As you can see in the video, Livi is making lots of noise. Right now it's in some sort of foreign tongue and we haven't found an appropriate translator. Perhaps ancient greek?

She's doing very well and we're very happy with that. She's gotten into a regular sleeping routine where she's sleeping a good 8 hours every night. We're very lucky. She gets bundled up in a white swaddling blanket and when I wake up in the morning I often find her wide awake kicking her legs inside this blanket. She looks like a little mental patient in a straight jacket. Perfect character for a remake of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

She's got a day out today with Mommy and Auntie Rachel to visit Nana Nutley. Then tomorrow a visit down south to see Auntie Daryl and Uncle Alex. We're hoping to get to see Kelly and her little one as well tomorrow. It will be her first "other baby" experience. Let's see how she handles it.

Call of Doodie

Sometimes we manage to catch Olivia in such a great moment that it has to be shared. She sat here like this for probably half an hour. Making sounds but no fidgeting or crying. Just staring at me and the screen. Can't wait until she can actually do this. I need my Player 2.
