Lazy and Big Headed

At two months, little Spanish Pinay was scheduled for another visit to her pediatrician. It's also time for her vaccines... poor one she screamed and wailed like never before in her two-month life. She was placed belly down to see how she'd hold up her head. She was weighed, measured, scrutinized from head to her tiny vag. She's all good and normal except that she's lazy and big headed. My little smart-rear is lazy to do push-ups. Sometimes she does but most of the times she just doesn't want to. And mami goes all poor-my-baby everytime she started crying during her tummy time so she'd pick her up at once. Bad parenting.

And what do you know, big headed she is. Literally. Hubby and I got stomach-tied when we saw the worried look of the pediatrician the moment the nurse reported that her head measurement is above the normal curve. So they measured again and yet again. In the end, her head measurement is normal but boundering the max. To be on the safe side, the doctor told us to come back after a month instead of after two months. We forgot to tell the pediatrician though that little Spanish Pinay came from a family of modest type of big headed people... my hubby for one! Anyways, we'll see in a month. These things about head, brain, skull, etc, gives me creeps and I'm pretty sure it won't let me sleep well at night if I think too much. Knowing how paranoid mom I am.

So what's the assignment after the check up? More tummy time and less lying down flat on her back. Nurse said this can make the head go flat and thus make it look bigger. So more tummy time it is. In just a matter of minute, she's all "mami I'm tired already pick me up, please", and I'm all "my poor baby... come to mami's arms". But I had to suck it up. After 3 days, she's gotten more used to it. She'd still complain but after a longer time.. like 3 minutes :-).

So ladies and gentlemen, we got stronger neck, arms and shoulders!

And we also want to add this picture showing off her fluffy tushy!

I love her reusable diapers. Makes her butt so fluffy, it's funny. Hey, that's a good rhyme!  Look at her arching her back with her two legs up.  We may be having a gymnast soon ;-)

About the big head, I hope there's also some exercise to not make the head grow above the normal curve... but there's none so, we'll just see in a month's time.   Ta-ta for now!
