The chunk monster

Cameron has definitely chunked up in the past few weeks. I think it's because she is getting 4 ounces in her bottles at school. And because she is getting older. We have her 4 month appointment next week and I can't wait to find out how much she weighs! Any predictions?

Speaking of school, there has been a case of rotovirus in her classroom. To say I am not happy is putting it mildly. Cameron has had her first oral for the virus but requires two more to actually be vaccinated. The school claims that it's no big deal and that "every" child gets it before the age of 5. If that's true then why is there a vaccine? Has anyone else experienced this? Cameron has been fine so far but I won't feel secure until she makes it to the weekend with no symptoms. I've asked that she not be placed in the shared big toys (like the swing and exersaucer) for a few days and do tummy time on a fresh blanket. The director was very amenable to that request. Are there other precautions I can ask for?

Cameron looks like she is ready to be a wide receiver.
Cameron loves watching baseball with her Daddy. Look at that double chin!
This picture is just because she is so darn cute!
Cameron enjoys her exersaucer.

the school's comment that its no big deal is bs, glad they are accomodating you on the shared toys ect. I predict 14lb 4 oz. When you go to the pediatrician you should ask about precautions for rotovirus.

Before DS2 was born, DS1 had it - then I got it and then DH got it. Not a nice couple of days. Luckily it only lasted a day or so. DS2 hasn't had it (knock wood). Kids get all manner of stuff at school - colds, pink eye, hand-foot and mouth disease...creepy crawlers, ugh!

She's supposed to be chunky! Once she starts crawling she'll "thin" out. That exersaucer is insane! I predict 14 lbs 7 oz.
