Toy Porn and 10 lb baby

Hazel continues to gain weight tho’ at a slightly slower pace since we stopped the butter injection treatments. Last week was her 2 month checkup and a round of shots. Oh that was fun – 2 shots in each leg. Good thing she didn’t see the size of the needles before she got stuck or she probably would have screamed more.

Hazel has also discovered television!

Our friend, Duane Nakamura, gave us a copy of Baby Einstein’s Baby Mozart DVD which is basically synthesized music with what Rob calls “Toy Porn” – shots of wind up and motorized toys and puppets and the “mysterious lady hand” playing with stacking toys. Amazingly it just captivated Hazel’s attention! So despite the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics I set the Tivo up to record a few other shows to see what interests her. So far Zoboomafoo is on the top of the list. We’ve also watched some Sesame Street but Mr. Rogers is a bit slow for her taste.

Hazel is also getting really good at the “pout and scream” routine. I think she was born knowing how to make the ‘pouty face’ – the one face I don’t think we have a picture of yet. I think she’s testing Mom to see how long it takes to get picked up – not long at all.

We went out on a walk around Alki point and to the library the other day – our first outing without Daddy – who’s off in Boston. We may have to go for a walk today around the neighborhood while the weather isn’t freakishly hot as it is everywhere else.

Daddy gets back tomorrow evening YAY!
