2 Month Check-Up

Gavin had his 2-month check up with Dr. Shafai on May 22. We found out that he is 10.12 pounds and 23 1/2 inches long! He is growing so fast! He is about 23% for weight and 78% for height, so basically, he's on the long, slim side. He looks so much longer to me lately, so I knew he was going to be much bigger than last time. But wow - 2 inches in a month! And he's already 5 inches bigger than he was at birth. How amazing!

He also got 5 immunizations during this appointment - yikes! It was awful for me, I cried more than Gav did. I had to hold his little arms down while the nurse gave him 2 shots in his left leg and 1 shot in his right. I hate the fact that she had to stick the entire length of the needle in his little legs, it's terrible. He was laying there being cute and when she stuck him, he immediately got big tears in his eyes and started crying, and so did I. As soon as it was over, I scooped him up and gave him lots of love. He calmed down pretty quickly because he's a tough little guy, but I cried all the way to the car.

  1. I hate shots.

    Rachel has to have four shots last month at her kindergarten physical. I had to lay across her and the nurse poked her legs each twice.

    I welled up in tears.

    You'd think that with as much as I've been through with Rachel, shots would be a breeze. They weren't.
