Two Months Old, Already?

Today we took Aiden for his fourth trip to the doctor...his two month check-up. This visit promised to be *fun*. Not. I knew beforehand he would be getting some shots and I was not too excited about the prospect of watching, dealing with a fussy boy, and having to bear the pain of knowingly hurting my child. Needless to say, I wasn't stoked for this day. All started well with little man weighing in at a massive 8 lbs, 10 oz. He's just huge. :)

Off we went to see Dr. P and face the needle of the nurse. He's doing quite well and growing away. Always on the smaller side of normal, his little body's growing longer and he gets chubbier by the week. He's a healthy and observant little dude. He sat wide eyed and curious as the nurse brought out the big guns, aka needles. He was getting six vaccines, though one was delivered by mouth and there were only three shots. Nathan and I held his little hands and feet as she prepped his leg and then there it was....needle #1. Needless to say, it's not an experience I want to relive, but three shots later, we had a screaming boy on our hands. BUT....miracle of all miracles, he stopped about 30 seconds later and within 5 minutes had fallen asleep. Afraid of certain doom - afternoon fussiness, all day fever, and an out of control day - we headed home after a few errands. To my pleasant and oh so grateful surprise, he did so well all day. No crying, no fussing, no fever,  no nothing, except one happy boy. It was great...all in all he's much braver than me!
Our little man is growing so fast...he's talking more, laughing lots, pooping in massive quantities (though only once or twice a day), growing so much and is finally more than 8 pounds, and becoming a little man. I can't wait to see how he'll grow as the weeks continue to fly by. It's truly remarkable all the changes that have occurred even since we brought him home. It should be exciting to watch. 

I finally got around to posting some updated pictures - you can see them via  the link on the sidebar of the blog or by clicking here
