2 months already

We had Jackson's 2 month check up and first round of shots the other day

The check up went great - we have a fabulous pediatrician. Jackson continues to be an amazingly healthy boy and has reached all of his developmental milestones - most sooner than expected. He weighed 13 lbs 6 oz and is 24 in long... that's 5 lbs and 4 inches in two months. We're so proud of him.

The shots were horrible (more for me than him). That pitiful scream is the worst. Ben handed him to me after the shots and he just looked at me like "how could you let them do that to me?!" Ugh - I asked the dr beforehand if I could just be a hippie mom and refuse the shots and he said no and laughed...little did he know, I wasn't really joking... Unfortunately, we have several more rounds of those shots to go. It's like a double edged sword with immunizations - if I refuse the shots and he gets sick then I'm a bad mom and feel horrible and if I allow them to give him the shots and he has a reaction to them then I am a horrible mom and feel guilty... So, after praying about it, God gave us a peace about getting the shots and here we are. Jackson did well though and slept them off and is back to his normal sweet self again... He's such a big boy and I can't believe how fast he's growing. Hope everyone else is doing well.
