Shots!

Joe is sleeping off a rough morning.

He had his two-month checkup today, including two shots. In the right thigh, he got a shot for hemophilus influenza. In the left thigh, he got a shot for diptheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, hepatitis B and polio.

Thank goodness they can pack all that into two shots. Joe was cranky and crying before the nurse even came in, so seeing him get the shots wasn’t so bad. He just kicked the crying up a notch or two. (If he had been smiling and cooing when he got them, it might have broken my heart.)

In happier news, he is growing like a weed! His current stats:

  • 10 pounds, 13 ounces (25th percentile)
  • 22.5 inches long (25th percentile)
  • 16-inch head circumference (75th percentile — a big head for his big smart brain!)
