New Stats!

Sawyer had his 2-month checkup with Dr. Gerwein this week. Everything looks great. He had his first shots, which did NOT go over well.

He screamed immediately, and his entire head turned bright red with anger. After about 10 seconds (or 30, depending on which one of us you ask), the screaming subsided. The pain wasn't long lasting, so a quick bout of nursing made him forget. But we knew that one of the shots was tetanus, and we knew (from recent personal experience) that a tetanus shot hurts more later on than it did originally.

He went home and took a nap...and when he woke up, he screamed. And screamed. AND SCREAMED. We did everything we could, finally giving him a few drops of Tylenol. Wow -- it's hard to see your kid in pain!

His stats at 2 months:
23.5" long (75th percentile) (he's grown 2 inches since birth)
12 lbs., 6 oz. (74th percentile) (he's added 2 pounds, 13 ounces since birth)
40cm head (60th percentile)
