Brodie Rolls Over and Army Crawls! (10w2d)

I set Brodie down for his first official tummy time on his ocean mat and within 3 minutes he was army crawling and then he rolled over! I was lucky enough to be filming him when he did it and have it on video forever now! I also videoed him again a few minutes later and he rolled again and army crawled some more. Here is the 2nd video because it shows both! :) Several people have told me that this is EXTREMELY early for him to be able to roll over and crawl like that. When did your children first roll over?

Mini Golfing with the Mei Tai (9w6d)

We went mini-golfing with my friend Andy and all I can say is THANK GOODNESS for a mei tai wrap! I LOVE mine and am so glad I am babywearing. :) I was able to play golf, keep my baby warm and close, and not worry about carrying around heavy carseats. Here are some pictures from the night

2 month pediatrician appt (2m)

At Brodie's 2 month appointment he weighed 10lb10oz (50%tile) was 23 3/4 inches long (75%tile)' and his head was in the 25%tile.

My poor lil guy also had to get his 2 month shots, which were the first shots he's ever had. He had a 3 in 1 shot, a 2 in one shot, and an oral medication. He cried the saddest cry I've heard from him when they stuck him with the first one. It was so sad I started crying. He got bugs bunny band-aids and fell asleep in the car on the way home. He was very sleepy that whole day and had a hurt cry whenever we shifted him on our body. He cuddled me all day long and had a fever that day and the next.

We discovered when we took the bandaids off a few days later that he had developed red welts on his legs where the sticky was. That means he inherited my allergy to medical adhesive :( The welts/rough redness lasted for several days and finally disappeared. My grandma who was a nurse said we will have to ask for silk or paper tape instead of band aids from now on. I will have to find that at the store too, since he is going to be getting cuts/scraps when he gets older. That's going to make first aid more difficult on him.

Here is the little man before shots, for his 2 month photo:

And here are his sad little band-aided legs:
