2 Month Shots

BJ had to go to the doctor yesterday for his 2 month checkup.  Doctor H. seemed extremely happy about BJ's growth. He's 12 lbs 2.5 oz. (big guy) and 22.5 inches long (shorty).

This is the most recent picture I have uploaded on to my computer.  Big Baby! hehe.

A funny thing happened to us when the nurse was taking his measurements... HJ was taking off BJ's onesie and diaper to get his weight, and all of a sudden, I hear "AH!"  I look up to find HJ covering BJ's peepee (lol) with a cloth diaper.  BJ peed all over the scale!  The nurse was nice enough to shrug it off, which I was extremely thankful for.  If she got angry, I don't know what I would've done.  They must see this often with baby boys. hehe.

Okay, so besides his measurements, BJ had to get three shots and drink one vaccine.  If any of you have witnessed a baby getting shots before, you will know this, but HJ was surprised when the nurse jabbed the needle into BJ's thighs.  What I was most shocked about was how much of a trooper BJ was!  Right after the nurse jabbed him with the needles, his face turned red for 2 seconds.  Then, he cried for 10 seconds, stopped crying, and that was it!  I think I would've had a longer cry than him, haha.  He's a brave boy. :-)

Dr. H said that his shots may affect him in different ways, such as diarrhea, fever, and drowsiness.  BJ got super sleepy and warm, so after HJ came home, he gave him some infant tylenol. After his slight fever went away, that was it.  BJ's back to normal today.

I am a proud mommy of how brave BJ was yesterday!


  1. "Jabbed" is right. I just thinks it's a little funny that they have this delayed reaction with the shot. It's like they're sucking in as much air as possible before screaming.

  2. oh gosh, i know! it's like, you want to laugh, but at the same time, you know they're in pain, so it's hard to laugh... but it's still kinda funny. :-)
