Eloise was weighed and measured at 13.6 lbs and 24 inches long (that's 3 lbs and 2 inches up from two months ago), and received 3 shots during which she hardly cried at all (my brave, brave girl!). The doctor was pretty sure Eloise was just absorbing everything from the breast milk, but she ordered an x-ray anyway so after our appointment we headed to the hospital to have that done. We were in and out in about 25 minutes and Eloise was a true trooper! I was so proud of my baby girl!
A few hours after I got home, the doctor called to say the x-rays were clear and completely normal. Since we were getting to start fruits and veggies, she said that would probably make Eloise go, but if not to call them back.
Well, not only did Eloise try green beans for the first time, she pooped as well! I know it is crazy and completely first parent-like to talk about poo with so many exclamation points and so much excitement but I can't help myself. And feeding her for the first time was SO FUN! Messy, and Eloise was unsure, but it was fun.

|Dad gives it a try.|
|Eloise is not quite sure.|
|Bananas the next morning.|
So, my apologies for interrupting Promotion Power Week, but as you can see it was of vital importance that I share the exciting happenings around here.
