Five Immunizations

Tyler survived his doctors appointment today...I thought he was only getting 2 shots...nope he got 4 shots and one oral vaccine. The look on Tyler face when he realized what was going on was heart breaking. He was so at peace sitting on daddy's lap with his pacifier in his mouth and as soon as the nurse took out the first shot his eyes shot wide open and then his face went beet red and he started screaming. After the 4th shot went in I couldn't get to Tyler fast enough to pick him up and hold him. Thankfully he calmed down right away on mommy's shoulder. That really made me feel like a mother. It was definitely an experience to remember.

He weighed in at 15 lbs 1 oz (totally naked) and 24.5 " long. Here are some pictures of how fast he is growing. Remember he's only 2 months old! He has officially out grown the changing table on the pack 'n play/bassinet. (Weight limit 15 lbs)

Here is how we have to swaddle him at night...he's outgrowing this miracle blanket, so now we just swaddle his arms and leave his legs out. He also has been wiggling and squirming around the bassinet...he likes to be close to the side...good thing they are mesh sides.

By the way, he's been totally knocked out all day. Last night he did sleep from 11-5am and then again until 8am. It was really great. We'll see how tonight plays out though...I remember those days of booster shots in the thigh and being pretty sore...hope he just sleeps right through it.



He's quite the chunk-of-love! So adorable!
