2 month 1 week stats

First off...Moms, how do you deal with the shots? Breaks my heart to see Max screaming in pain (even if only for a minute). I think it hurts me more than him. Thank goodness we don't go back again until 4 months old...or does it just get worse? Nevermind, I don't want to know. All I can tell myself is it is for his good health!

Anyhow, speaking of healthy, we got one very healthy Max on our hands. We'll call him our little butterball. Doc says that most breastfed babies will gain alot of weight in the first 6 months and then lose it later - guess it is the fat in the breastmilk. For now, we'll enjoy our chunky monkey.

Head circumference: 41cm - 69th percentile
Height: 23 1/4 in. - 54th percentile
Weight: 13lbs 14 oz. - 88th percentile

Here was Max right before our appointment today...I didn't take an "after" pic!
"I have no clue what's in store for me!"

I don't think the shots get any easier, unfortunately! Like you said, we just have to know that it's for their good health! I have to take Aoki for her 4-year shots next month, and I'm dreading that even more!

Max is so friggin' cute! Love him!
