I also signed consent for her to get her first set of vaccinations! She'll get them when she is 60 days old (Wednesday) over 2 days. She will be getting vaccinated against Pneumococcal, polio, Hep B, DTP, and Hib-- 7 diseases in 3 shots (DTP is for 3 diseases, diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis). She will get the DTP, Hib, and polio in 1 shot (pediarix) and Hep B separate on one day. Then, she will get Prevnar (pneumococcal) the next day.
Adalyn also attended her first concert today given by her daddy! This past summer, for our 5 year anniversary, we went to Hawaii. While we were there, DH became interested in ukeleles, since you see and hear them pretty much everywhere. DH plays guitar and was interested in this instrument. We thought about buying one while we were there, but the ones that weren't play/souvenir ones that we saw were like $700! So, for Christmas, I bought him a decent ukelele (nothing fancy)--really, a beginner's one--to mess around with. So today we brought the ukelele to the hospital to play for Adalyn, to see how she liked it. She LOVED it!
DH basically picked at it and played some random melodies, etc. He also figured out how to play Yankee Doodle Dandy, and Adalyn enjoyed the whole thing! She was awake for some of it and slept for the rest. I could tell she like it because her face was relaxed, and the monitors showed me that her heartrate was low and her sats were high. We did this for about 3 hours--the time between her 11am and 2pm Hands On.
DH looks so silly playing the ukelele since it is so small. However, I told him, tiny baby=tiny guitar. When she's bigger and is home, we'll try her out on the big guitar. However, I think that the ukelele will always be soothing.
Have a great weekend everyone!
