On Wednesday, Jan. 21st, Hali'a went in to the Pediatrician's office for her 2 month appointment which included her first set of immunization shots. She was great during the whole appointment until it was shot time. She cried so hard and held her breath for so long that she turned blue. It was so sad to see her cry. After Jon picked her up and comforted her she was okay.
Our baby girl is growing and getting bigger. She now weighs 6 pounds and 12 ounces (how heavy her mommy was when she was born).
We can tell that her eye sight is getting better as well as her listening skills. She smiles and coos a lot more and is so fun to watch. She is still very alert and loves to look at everyone and everything.
As some of you know, she loves to be 'in the party'. She loves to be around lots of people. When we try to put her down for a nap or take her away from the group she gets very fussy. She's very social. She reminds me of Grandma Bertha....Hali'a has become my 'Miss Aloha'. Now that she's been around big crowds since she was born, she has learned to sleep through anything! We took her to a Nike party and she slept right through the loud music and crowds of people. When the construction guy came over and fixed the side door of the house, Hali'a could only nap in the living room where she could hear the noise and would wake up every time I tried to take her in a room which were silent. Oh well, I think we'll have to start sleeping with a clock radio on or something.
Lastly, Hali'a is starting to sleep for longer periods of time. Usually she gets up every three hours to feed, but recently we've been having 4, 5, and 6 hours of rest before her next feeding. Of course these long rests happen only occasionally, but it's nice to get surprises like that sometimes!!
Last night before her moimoi time her daddy decided to play with her hair....
Can you tell how much she liked that?
Hali'a has never really liked lying straight on her back for long periods of time (nor does she enjoy her "tummy time"...yet), but just the other day I layed her on her play mat from Nanz and she played with the hanging octopus and whale for about 45 minutes so that was great! Thank you Nanz!
As a Christmas gift, Dina Love took family pictures and announcement pictures of Hali'a. At the time, Hali'a didn't seem to want to work with us cause she was the fussiest she ever was since birth, but Dina still did a great job and captured some good photos of our baby girl.
Thank you so much, Dina!
