2nd month doctor's appointment

Weight: 11 lbs 6 oz
Height: 23 in

Samantha had her 2nd month doctor's appointment today. I can't believe how big she is getting. She gains 1 lbs 6 oz and grew 1 1/2 inches since her last appointment. She also had her first round of shots. She did so good. Daddy held her arms down while the nurse gave Samantha her shots in her little legs. She did get cute Snoopy bandaids for them. After she was done we gave her a bottle to calm her down since they wanted us to stay there for 15 minutes to make sure she didn't have any reactions. She was such a trooper. She didn't get a fever and she slept for the rest of the day.

Samantha's 1st cold & Update

Well we got through Samantha's first cold. She got sick when we got back from Chicago. She had gotten the cold that Jim and I had, poor girl. She never ran a fever so that was good, but she just sneezed and coughed a lot. Luckily, we didn't need to go anywhere so she was able to sleep it off. This morning she woke up to her normal cheerful self and was giving me a ton of smiles.

This is going to be a long week. Jim has his last week of classes for the semester which equals a ton of tests. He has one Thursday, Friday, next Monday and Tuesday. Which means Wednesday we leave to go back to Chicago!!!! I'm hoping Samantha has a very good week. These are the times where I wish we were back in Chicago to hang out with family to break up my day. We also find out on Friday where his 3rd and 4th year rotations will be. We are very anxious and excited for that!

Samantha's first trip to Chicago

Samantha had her first road trip to Chicago and boy did she do good. We left on Tuesday morning. I had convinced Jim Monday night to skip class all day Tuesday rather than leaving Tuesday afternoon. So we left in the morning after Samantha ate. It took us about 9 hours and she slept most of those. We arrived at Jim's parents house becuase this is where we would be staying over Thanksgiving. Soon after we arrived my family met us there. We had a good night of visiting and Samantha being handed from one person to another. It was great to see everyone again. I knew it was going to be a very busy week because everyone wanted to see her, so I wanted to make sure she had a good night sleep.

We woke up Wednesday morning and went over to see Aunt Liz. This was the first time they had seen Samantha. We spent a couple hours over there and she was a very good girl. From there, mom, Julie and myself drove out to work so they could see her. We were there for quite some time and enjoyed seeing everyone again. Wednesday night, we took Samantha to see her first high school basketball game. She did so well.

Thursday was Thanksgiving. We went to church in the morning with Samantha and she loved it. It was mostly music and Samantha loves music. We had Thanksgiving at Jim's parents house and my family was there as well. It was a great way for everyone to meet Samantha. We had such a good time. Samantha slept for most of the day on Auntie Julie and Oma (my mom).

It was such a great weekend and we can't wait to get back up there for Christmas. Samantha will also be baptized when we go back up there and she will get to meet her Great Oma and Great Papa. It is going to be so exciting.
