2 Month Doctor Visit and Shots

Today was Parker's 2 month check-up.  All things considered he did really great!  First was his weight and length check.  He was very long and lean at his newborn check-up so we were happy to see that he is starting to average out more.  He weighed 11 lbs. 7 ozs. (36th percentile) and was 23 1/2" long (64th Percentile.)  The doctor was happy with his growth and told us to keep on trucking with what we are doing.  Next was the physical exam.  She was surprised to hear how much rolling he has been doing. (On a side note, he rolled from his back to his stomach a few days ago!) She did some additional checking because early rolling can sometimes be an indicator of other things to be concerned about, but he was fine!  She then went over the vaccines that he would get that day.  He got tongue drops for Roto-virus which is a stomach bug that can be particularly harsh to infants.  Then he got 3 shots of combined vaccines for Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Hepatitis B (second dose), Polio, Hib (a type of influenza), and Pneumococcal.  It was hard to see my little guy crying, but I feel it is the right choice for us to have him vaccinated.  I am so happy that he is doing well!

I cried a little too...
