Today, Jack and Christine and I headed to Dr. Treybig’s office for Jack’s two-month visit (and that most horrible of four-letter words for a two-month old baby: shots).
Yep, that’s right, Jack got his first shots today. Ouch!
But, he did really well folks. Really well. He took them like a man, and only got a little fussy towards the end of them. (Okay, he screamed pretty good, but the nurse that gave him the shots was awesome, and they went really quick, so he was back to normal pretty quick.)
We learned a lot at the doctor office today. Seems like we should start trying to put Jack on a schedule starting now… though she said he might not pick up on the sleeping schedule until he’s about 4 months old. She said that we might want to start feeding him one formula bottle right before bed now, and that usually helps them sleep a little longer at night (wouldn’t that be nice?).
Jack weighed 11 lbs. 12 oz. and is 22 1/2 inches long. He’s growing well and looks good. All of his joints work well, and he’s super strong. He showed of his strength for the doctor by standing with Daddy’s help, and by picking his head up and looking around when she put him on his tummy.
It was a good visit for all of us… especially now that Jack has his immunizations.
