2 Month Appointment

Today was Jackson's 2 month appointment. He did great! We were at the doctor's office for about an hour and a half. I feel like it was a miracle that he wasn't crying the entire time because he was supposed to be napping, but he didn't start fussing until the last 10-15 minutes while we were waiting to get his shots. Fortunately, we had a bottle with us, so we were able to calm him down before and after the shots.

The shots were about what you'd expect. One of the vaccines was oral and the other 5 were given in 3 shots. He screamed with each poke, held his breath until his lips turned purple, and then cried. It was so sad we had to laugh. He got some Tylenol as soon as we got home and has been sleeping ever since.

He now weighs 10 lbs. 4 oz., which is still in the 25th percentile. He's 22.75 inches long (50th percentile) and his head is 14.5 inches in circumference(25th percentile).
