Doctor's Appointment--2 Month Checkup

Since last week was so busy with me returning to work, I forgot to post about Will's 2 month check up on Thursday.

He weighed 9 pounds and was 22 inches long. This took me and Clay by surprise. We were sure that he was in the 8 pound range. He is still in the 10th percentile, but the doctor says he is healthy and gaining weight at the proper pace. Everyone still comments on how small he is, but considering he was 6 pounds 3 ounces at birth, he has gained almost 3 pounds.

Also, he had to get 3 shots and an oral med. He did fine with the oral med and the Tylenol they gave him, but the shots were another story. They made him MAD!!! Clay had to hold him down because I couldn't do it. He only cried for a few minutes and then he was fine. Nurse Debbie is so good with him. She held him and talked to him after she gave him the shots, and that really calmed him down. Mom watched him the rest of the day, and she said he mostly just slept. I was thankful for that.

His next appointment is in 2 months, so we are praying he stays healthy until then!
