Asher Grace- 2-month Appointment

Asher had her 2 month appointment last week and is healthy as a horse. 99% for weight (15 pounds), 99% for height, and 80% for head.  I told the doc I thought she may be a bit tongue-tied (the frenulum that connects her tongue to the bottom of her mouth looked too far forward) and he looked and confirmed that she is, but as long as it isn't affecting her ability to eat-which obviously it isn't-he would wait and see if it affects her speech later on before doing anything.  If it does, he can snip it a bit.  I also mentioned that she doesn't like to nurse on my right side and will pull off about 20 times and swallow a bunch of air in the process.  I've pumped on that side and it's not a production problem.  He suggested trying the football hold.  "Maybe she just wants to look around" he said, and I thought, "right, my 2-month-old needs entertainment while she eats."  but I tried it at home and it worked like a charm haha.  It's a super awkward position though so I hate having to do it in public.

I've still got some weight to lose- 12 pounds till I'm at my pre-baby weight and then I'd like to drop another 5 after that.  It has been so frustrating because it went quicker with the first two and hardly any of my clothes fit, I'll have to be creative when we go on our trip in a bit because I can't just wear leggings and huge shirts every where :) I'm being super careful about what I eat though and slowly but surely the number on the scale is dropping.

Asher is sleeping from 10-6:50 now, wakes to eat, then sleeps again until I wake her back up at 8:30 to start the day.  I love that she's so cute and chubby and healthy, but sad that she felt like a newborn for such a short period.  We sure love our girl and she adds so much to our family already.

 Her older sisters were so sweet helping her be brave for her checkup and shots.  We always delay whatever immunizations we can and only do the expedient ones each checkup, leaving others for when our kids are older, but will definitely have them all in before public school.  This checkup whooping cough and meningitis were our priorities.
