Immunizations and other baby drama

This was a big week for Katerina who had her 2 month immunizations on Thursday. Four big needles - ouch! We ended up with a very sleepy baby for the rest of the day, who woke up, about 2:30 and cried for 5 or 10 minutes straight. I realized how lucky we are to have a baby who doesn't scream for hours on end. She usually (usually) cries only when she needs something.

Saturday we had our first parental nightmare when her stroller tipped while we were shopping. She is fine. SHE IS FINE. But we are rattled and much chastened and will never ever put a diaper bag on the handles of the stroller again. Fortunately a bunch of blankets were piled on the boot of her carseat and she basically fell into them. We then had an E.R. visit - just to get her checked out. Children's Hospital was impressive and wonderful to both of us, but even when they said they were 99% sure she was fine it was terrifying and I became convinced I was the only mom to knock over a stroller with such a little baby. (Apparently I'm not.) She is fine - as I mentioned already but I can't say it too many times. She actually enjoyed the hospital and laughed and cooed at everyone who came to see her or even just walked by.

She is generally a very very happy baby. But cranky today - Dan is trying to get her to sleep right now. She sees no need for sleep, especially at night. No pictures today, sorry, but we'll get more up soon.
