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.
