Locke's First Shots

On Wednesday, Locke had his 2 month check-up with Dr. Bridge.  He weighed in at 12 lb. 15 oz. (75th percentile) and 22 and 3/4 inches in height (50th percentile).  Interestingly, Ledger was 1 pound less but 1 inch taller at his 2 month appointment -- that means Locke is shorter and stouter. :)  He had three shots and 1 oral vaccine .  As if his three vaccines weren't enough, he jerked his leg after the first one and it resulted in a 2" long needle scratch on his little thigh.  He screamed through the whole thing, of course.  And then, he cried and fussed all afternoon.  He was even too fussy to take a bottle or breastfeed.  Later in the afternoon, we were finally able to get some Tylenol in him and he relaxed enough to sleep.  Poor little guy.  And poor Daddy -- hearing his baby cry and not being able to make him feel better was really difficult for him.

  1. Hope he feels better soon. :( I would say out of all the shots Kindergarten shots have been the worse yet!
