Today was Hulk's 2 month checkup. This is the first one that Aaron didn't come with me, and of course the one where he got shots. I understand that there are people that had a bunch of different theories on getting immunized - my opinion is that there are some scary diseases out there, and the shots are important. I plan on following the schedule as recommended by my doc.
This was also the first time that I met my actual doctor - and she is great. I caught her up on the stuff we went through for breastfeeding, and she was very supportive. She asked how he was eating (about 6 ozs ever 3 - 4 hours) and sleeping (5 - 7 hours a night in a row) and she said it was all looking great! He weighed in at 14 lbs, 10 oz (90th percentile for weight) and 24 3/4 inches long (89th percentile for height). She said he was big - but doing great for his own curve. He's pretty much been in the 90th percentile since he was born.
I tried to time things so he would need a bottle for the shots, hoping that would help keep him calm... and it looked like maybe it would work. Until he actually got he first shot. He little face screwed up into a bright red ball of fury! He was PISSED. It took me about 10 minutes to calm him down... and he's been sleeping ever since.
Aaron's mom is in town, and is going to watch him for us while we go out for a few hours tonight. She is super excited about it, and I can only hope that he isn't super cranky thanks to the shots. The weather here is beautiful, so I'm planning taking a walk with Hulk this afternoon too.
