What a big girl!!

Well, we made it. Yesterday's daycare drop-off and Brynn's doctor appointment today both went better than I thought they would, that's for sure!!

First off, just a reminder... I have the most awesome husband ever. (You can argue if you want... I'm always right though. Just ask him! Right Babe?! Ha.)

Chad went with me yesterday to drop her off because he knew it was going to be rough for me to take her for the first time. Brynn woke up smiling yesterday morning, was smiling when we took her to daycare and was still smiling when we left, so that made it a whole lot easier too. Whew. When Chad picked her up, Brenda (the lady who watches her) said that she was surprised that I only called her once to check in!!

I met Chad at the pediatrician's office and he had already taken her to get her stats taken before I got there!!

Here's a recap:

Weight - 7lbs, 5oz
Length - 20 1/4"

Weight - 10lbs, 14oz (she's in the 75th percentile)
Length - 22 1/2" (she's in the 50th percentile)

Dr Salek said "She's a cutie, so much hair!" as soon as he walked into the room today. He said that she's a perfectly healthy baby girl! YAY! After he checked her out, he sent the nurse in to give her shots... UGH. Brynn did really good, she screamed for about a minute or so and then was ok... then caught her breath and kind of whimpered for a few minutes and that was about it. She yelled at me in the car for a minute and that was only because the sun was in her eyes... I fixed her convertable top on her carseat and she was good to go!

Whew. I made it both days without crying. I can't believe it. I came REALLY REALLY close a few times but I held it together. I'm pretty proud of myself!! YAY ME!!

Here are a few pictures that we took today:

Does she look comfy or what?! Notice the bandaids on her leg... ;o(

Look at how much volume her hair has!! Why can't mine be like that?!

Glad everything went well! Time goes way too fast. She is getting big! Before you know it she will be crawling around like Johanna. It's happy and sad all at the same time!
