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! :)
