2 months

Aiden turned two months old on Wednesday. Today he had his two month checkup, which went great until the time came for shots. My little man was in such a great mood, as he usually is, just smiling away and cooing as we weighed him, measured him, and the doctor did the exam. Then came three shots, pricking the soft skin of those meaty little thighs. Poor Aiden went from grinning to balwing in .1 second flat. He didn't know what hit him. Thankfully I was ready to nurse him right away, which helped comfort him quickly. Truth be told, I think it was almost as hard for me to watch as it was for him to get them!

Even though he's only two months, I have a very healthy, large, robust boy on my hands! Here are the current stats:

Weight: 14.5 pounds (what a porker!)
Height: 25 inches (that's 4.5 inches longer than his birth height!)

He's in the 97th percentile for both height and weight, so I guess I must have some pretty nutritious breastmilk!

Aiden is such a joy at 2 months. He's doing so many fun things. He loves to babble and flirt, giving smile after smile. He loves to snuggle and be entertained by us. His head control is great, and he can push his whole chest off the ground when he's on his tummy. He's just starting to really use his hands and bat at his toys. And he's a complete angel when it comes to sleeping... he'll generally go for 6 hours after I put him down for the night, then wake up and eat, and back to sleep for another 3 hours or so.

It's absolutely wonderful to watch him grow and develop into a little person. Happy 2 months, little guy! We love you!

yay! Glad to hear he's doing so well- what a big boy! Maggie is 4 months and only weighs 12lbs 10oz, hehe.

Shot days are The Worst. I hate how they jump at the poke and then immediately start screaming, such a weird cry that you know is more than just sadness. They are MAD!
