Waiting at the doctor for the shots!

Yesterday, we had Brady’s two month appointment at 11 weeks. This also meant that we had to get his first round of vaccinations. Let’s give you the stats first:

Weight: 15 lbs = 90th percentile
Heights: 24.5 inches = 75th percentile

Dr. P thought that he looked great and was adjusting and growing well! She actually thought we might want to increase his bottles by .5 to 1.0 ounces! The boy is going to be huge!

On to the shots… you know that look that people make when they are more shocked and then they realize that something hurts really bad too! Well, that was my kid. The nurse was quick and jabbed both thighs in literally five seconds but after the first one, Brady looked at me like he wanted to say, “I am stunned you let someone do this and it HURTS!” He wailed, his gave got really red and then just cried. Seriously, the kid has been stuck more times in the past eleven weeks than I care to discuss. So, after I picked him up and soothed him he went HAPPILY in to his car seat and we left for home. He slept for a while at home while the plumber was working (DON’T EVEN ASK ABOUT THIS ONE) and then woke up screaming bloody murder. The poor kid screamed for over an hour until Grandma Witherow kindly suggested to me that he might need some Tylenol for pain and a bottle. And, of course, it worked. He was still pretty fussy and slept on and off for the next hour. We gave him a bath and another bottle and he was sound asleep at 9:30. What time did he wake up? 7:00 AM. Poor kid… but as usual he is back to his typical self today!

Grandma arrives tomorrow, we see the pediatric urologist tomorrow for more insight on his kidneys and we are baptizing the little guy Sunday! What a busy couple of days before I return to work on Monday!
