Big Week for Maddie (and Mommy)

It was a week of firsts... my first week back to work which meant Maddie's first full day with Grandma and then her first day in daycare. I have mixed feelings on our daycare arrangement right now but at least we have some options and our munchkin seems to be handling it just fine. Her teachers said they barely heard a peep out of her all day. She would play on the floor or sit in a swing and just look around and smile.

Maddie also had a doctor's appointment and her first series of immunizations. Two shots in each thigh. They gave all 4 of them at one time and I held back the tears. Her cries were absolutely heart wrenching. And we have to do it all over again in 6 weeks.

Her current stats:
25 inches tall = 90th percentile
10 lbs 4 oz = 25th percentile
head 15 = 50th percentile

She isn't gaining weight as fast as she's growing length but we've been transitioning back and forth between formula and breastfeeding and I'm sure that once we get into a better routine with that, she'll start putting more weight on. In the meantime, she is one of the tallest babies in her daycare class but also the thinnest. She looks tiny next to some of the babies that look more like a couple of bowling balls smooshed together.

Here are some pics of her when I brought her home from her first day at daycare:
Her teachers said she clutched onto her little teddy all day... how cute!
