2 months!

Well here we are, 2 months. I can't believe I've been a mommy that long already, it seem unreal. Today we had Aiden's 2 month appointment and he did very well. Stats are great: 13.075lbs, 23 1/4 inches long, 39cm head circ. This puts him in the 65th percentile for his height and 88th percentile for his weight. That means that for example 88% of babies weight less than him, and 12% his age weight more. Dr. said he is a "sturdy" boy, but is healthy and moving right on track. He was pleased.

I of course asked a bunch of questions but received good answers and of course everything I mentioned was normal and just fine. Yay. Aiden had to get 3 shots today (and 1 oral medicine) and he was such a trooper! I held his little hands and was kissing his cheeks. The nurse was soo quick about them but he screamed bloody hell none the less. He did that face turns purple, stop breathing, kind of scream - made me sad! He stopped as soon as mommy picked him up though.
A bottle to wash down his Tylenol....


Fast forward an hour and we are home... poor little thing is just crying on my shoulder. Now it's not any cry we've heard before - it's not a hungry, sleepy, gassy, fussy cry, it was a flat out obvious "I don't feel good" cry. Broke both Kris' and my hearts. Tylenol kicked in finally and he's sleeping on me right now, but it was just soo sad to hear this cry. I don't look forward to his 4 month appointment where we get round 2 of shots. Not to mention he could be fussy or act hurt or be just fine the next day or two - we will just have to wait and see.

Us now, see his bandaids.....


Aiden wasn't the only one to get a shot today though. Mommy and daddy were both offered, and of course accepted, the swine flu vaccine from the ped's office. Only cost us $20 bucks each too, and no pesky line around some public building with a crap ton of others wanting the shot! Woot. We could have had the nose spray, but Kris said "If Aiden is getting a shot today, we should too". So a shot we both got. It was a family bonding experience.

*side note here - Aiden just smiled in his sleep (he always does this is nothing new) and it made me feel a bit better, at least in his nap his little thighs don't hurt him!*

thanks for sharing about the anterior placenta...I honestly like hearing other people who had it and it was NO BIG DEAL, ya know? I have definitely felt something...but not "kicks"...

I can't wait!
