Two-Month Pincushion

Charlie had his two-month check-up today, which means shots.  And lots of 'em.  The only thing worse than holding your baby while someone jabs multiple needles into his defenseless thighs is doing it with a running commentary courtesy of the two-year-old, at top volume to be heard over the baby's screaming.  "Those are needles!  That's the medicine!  The baby is crying!"

Unlike Cubby after his vaccinations, Charlie did not wait until we got home to start shrieking.  Instead he elected to scream at full volume the entire way home in the car.  That's half an hour of continuous screaming, with a few seconds of subsiding to whimpers in order to catch his breath, and then resuming the screaming.

It was way fun.

He fell asleep right after we got home, though, and is still sleeping now.  Cubby is sleeping too.  Mommy would like to be sleeping--or possibly indulging in a liquid lunch--but instead I think I will go check for chicken eggs in the shed.

Oh, were you wondering about Charlie's stats?  He's 12 pounds, 7 ounces and 25 inches.  Which means he's of average weight and the longest two-month-old you'll ever see.  That's why he's currently wearing clothing in the six-months size.  Craziness.

Perfect timing. I'm on my way to base and will return the three month stuff and replace it with more 6 & 9 month stuff.

Does that compare to Cubby at that age? Beth

Beth: Charlie is longer than Cubby at 2 months by about an inch, but lighter by about a pound.
