Matthew's 2 Month Check-Up


That's right, my little man is 2 months old. Time really does fly (when there's a lack of sleep). So, his 2 month appointment was yesterday. (oh, and I went alone with the two boys and I made it out ALIVE! woo!) Anyway, here are his stats: 11 lbs 6 oz (50 %tile- so average), 22 inches long (20 %tile- so short like mommy), and his head was 39 centimeters (50 %tile- average). The doctor seemed pleased with the things he was able to do, and Matthew even gave the doc a giggle, which was kind of cute. He did receive 4 shots and an oral vaccine. Sadly, the poor little thing had a slight reaction to them, and had a fever for most of the night; didn't want to eat, for most of the night; and was super fussy, all night long. Mommy is going on very little sleep today.
Oh well, the joys of parenthood! :)

Lastly, he also has something called an umbilical hernia that from what I hear is actually quite common. It's not something they fix, unless it begins to cause problems or unless we decide we want it fixed, for cosmetic reasons. I'll take a picture of it later today and post it. It's actually kind of cute; it looks like he has a big ol' outtie! :)

Nadia had an umbilical hernia, too, and we were told the same thing about not fixing it unless it poses a problem or bothers her. In her case it has closed up on its own, although she still has a bit of an outie! cute! Oh, and I know someone that did need the procedure, and it was a piece of cake, no big deal at all.

I'm glad to hear he's doing fine, even though y'all had a rough night.

Aww! What a cutie. Sorry you guys had a rough night.

Foo had an umbilical hernia too. I think the dr noticed it at about 2 months also. Her's healed up fine on its own by about 18 months. However, it got BIGGER before it went away. Bigger than a golf ball, smaller than a baseball. It was kind of crazy looking but she is just fine. :)
