Doctor Visit

Wednesday Charlie had his two week check up. I LOVE our pediatrician, she is amazing. I brought a whole notebook page full of questions and she answered every single one, even writing down the answers for me!! If anyone needs a pediatrician around the Conroe area, let me know and I will give you her info.

Charlie was already 8 lbs 8 oz (7 oz up from his birth weight) and one inch longer. I can't believe how fast he's growing!!! He also had to get stuck in the heel and get his first shot. :( The heel stick wasn't so bad, I had heard that kind of cry before. I thought, okay, this is no big deal, I can handle this.

Then came the shot.

He was laying on the table and I was rubbing his head. He looked at me and his eyes got big when the shot went in, then even bigger when the pain registered. His face turned bright red and he bawled. Wow, just stab me in the heart why don't you!!!??? I immediately picked him up and he was easily consoled, and yes he actually forgave me and still seemed to love me and want me to hold him later (or maybe he just forgot?) Anyway, we made it through the first shot with some lovin' and a few looney toons band-aids. :)

Awww...Poor Charlie! He sounds like he was very brave, though!

The picture where you are holding him (I think he is getting his head measured?) is so cute. It is weird that just 2 weeks ago he was INSIDE your tummy.

I am glad you get to hug him now. :)

Aww...I hate those first few shots. With Gavin I could never go alone on shot was too hard on me..I cried a few times.

He is just precious Bethany. So cute and perfect!!
