Our little man had his 2-month well-baby checkup yesterday. He was such a good little guy through the whole exam, he even smiled at the doctor! He officially weighs 11 pounds 8 ounces now and is 23 3/4 inches long… he has gained 3 pounds and 3 1/2 inches during his 2 month 2 week journey with us so far! He is at a perfect height and weight for his age group, right in the middle – not too fat, not too lean.
Everything went well at his checkup, the doctor says he’s doing very well with his developmental skills and she just raved about how beautiful he looked and how nice his skin was… it was very heartwarming and I came to recognize the true overwhelming feeling of parental pride. Oh it’s going to be a fun ride!
He also had vaccinations. Papa and I have chosen to do the normal routine of vaccinations and baby had 5 shots and a syrup yesterday. He was an extremely mad beet. Since then, he has been very clingy and apparently very fussy, although last night when I got home I fed him and put him to bed without any problems. Everyone else was apparently frazzled, though. This morning he had a slight temperature and was not feeling the best, but some Tylenol and a touch of Mylicon helped greatly. Hopefully he’s still a peaceful baby.
In other news, IBM has officially acknowledged that they have lost my laptop. Lenovo is supposed to be calling within 48 hours to discuss the replacement.
