OUCH!!!! Today Lulu turned 8 weeks old and that meant it was time for another check-up with the doctor and a round of vaccinations. Although I've been dreading this day for a week, Emmylou handled it pretty well. Of course she screamed like bloody murder during the 4 (!) shots to her thighs but calmed down pretty quickly once I got to hold her. Then she was a little fussy over the course of the afternoon, but now, about 8 hours later, she's in her usual good mood (as you can see in the photo-- you can also see her Tweety Bird band-aid). Here are her new stats for those of you keeping count--- length: 22 inches (50th percentile), weight: 11 lbs, 6 oz (75th percentile) and head circumference: 15 inches (50th percentile).
