He had his first trip to Mall of America. We took our new stroller and walked around... and surprisingly learned a whole new side of mall going... the elevator. Since we are in the stroller gang now, we had to wait on elevators and crowd in with all the other strollers. Toward the end we ended up just taking the escalator down, but still needed to get on the elevator to go up.
He was suppose to have his 2 month check up Monday, but our doctor was ill so we had to reschedule for Wednesday. He measured 24 3/4 inches for length, 13 pounds 9 ounces and his head measured 16 1/8" around. He's growing very proportionately the doctor said and it seems that he is long!! He is 90% for weight and 98% for height.
He also got his first round of immunization. I have been doing lots of reading and pondering on the hot topic of immunizations and it's our decision to space them out and give his little body time to adjust to each one. I just don't see the need to cram them all in, in just a few short years. So instead of doing the SIX they recommend at two months, we only did TWO. The Diphtheria, Tetanus & Pertussis (DTaP - which is one shot) and the pneumococcal vaccine. He actually did surprisingly well. He didn't even cry at the first injection, and the lab tech said the 2nd one would burn a little, he did feel the second but only cried for less than a minute. It was his feeding time so I was waiting to feed him til he got the shots, which helped him feel better being able to nurse immediately after. Now let's just pray he doesn't have a reaction to either of those. The four that we declined at this time were: Hep B (which we decined at birth), Polio, Rotavirus, and Hib. We will do the Polio and Hib at the 9 month mark after the boosters for the first two are completed.
And just for fun, here are some of his fun faces:
