Speaking of sleep, last night was rough due to the shots he got as his two month appointment. Other than the shots, the appointment went really well though.
In fact, we were in the room by ourselves for quite awhile waiting for our doctor but E didn't seem to mind one bit. In fact, this is what he did the entire time:
He's now 10lbs 8oz.
22 inches long.\
Both are about the 18th percentile for his age.
Once the checkup was done it was time for his 2 month shots. I always hate this part because he loves the doctor's office and just loves looking around at all the exciting new scenery. So he is this adorable super happy baby and then ... it's like I'm punishing him for being so good. I hope he doesn't actually think this because I love how cute he is when we're at the doctor's.
Anyway, he got a vaccine that was swallowed as well as a shot in each leg.
Luckily, his cries weren't as traumatic as last month's. He had the shot and cried but we got him dressed stuck him in his carseat and he looked like this before we even got out of the office:
Unfortunately, these shots' effects were a lot longer lasting than the one month shot.
But we all survived the ordeal and we know our little guy is healthy and well.
Also, related to being two months old, I have some VERY good news:
On Sunday, his official two month birthday, we went all day long without using the nipple shield! For anyone who has talked to me about breastfeeding, you'll know what a big deal this is.
In fact, I was ecstatic and thought we were done with it for good! Of course, Monday came and no such luck. But we are at the point where we can avoid using the nipple shield about 50 percent of the time which is a lot better than a few days ago.
My goal is to be rid of it completely by his next doctor's appointment.
