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:
