Ouch! (Friday's post)

Alex had his 2 month checkup on Friday. I'm awfully glad it was on a Friday, too. Poor kid fussed all night. I thought watching him get the shots was bad...but watching him feel miserable all night was a million times worse.
I'm calling the pediatrician to reschedule Alex's 4 month vaccination appointment. It's scheduled for a Wednesday. We're definitely rescheduling for a Friday so Daddy is around to help if Alex has another few fussy days...and so Daddy's work-night sleep doesn't get interrupted by a sick, crabby boy.

Happy news: He's 100% healthy and growing too fast for his mama's liking! :) At 2 months, he's 11 lbs, 7 oz and 23.5 inches long. That's 50th percentile for weight & 75th for height. He's a cute, chubby little thing now.

After his appointment, we went to Target & had lunch with Aunt Deb. (Yes, at Target...Pizza Hut!) After a little shopping, we met Aunt Donna at work. No pictures this time, but Alex was definitely a hit around there. I think Donna's co-worker Carol might have taken Alex home with her if I didn't keep an eye on her! ;)

Daddy had volleyball, but Mommy stayed home with fussy Alex this week. He didn't give us much sleep at all this weekend, but as Im writing this on Monday, he seems to be feeling much, much better. Thank goodness!

Give him tylenol before his shots are even given -- when you arrive at the doctor & then continually give it around the clock for the first few days. When he's old enough, you can switch to Motrin.
