Check-up!

Travis had his 2 month check-up today. He now weighs 12 pounds 3.5 ounces and is 24 inches long! He's just barely above average in all the categories...yay for Travis!! The downer to the visit was the shots! He got two routine shots and then an extra one (not sure the name) that's supposed to help with ear infections and some other things. I just have to say that I hate shots. I could never be a nurse and have to give shots to children...I would cry! Anyways, he was pretty darn sad when he got them, but he took a good nap. They didn't seem to bother him until about 4, when he woke up. Every time he moved his poor little legs, he would scream bloody murder! I have never heard him scream like that and he did it for an hour straight!! I'm just so glad that Christian was home with me so he could help out. Travis was screaming which made Carson sad, which made mom sad too! But, seems to be better now. Thank goodness for baby drugs!

Poor little man. That does look nasty. I don't remember Cade ever bruising, poor Travis!! thank goodness for mommy cuddles and that they can't remember I guess!

I think shots are sad too. It would be hard for me to give them. Syd and Char's dr. told me that she had a nurse that cried when she had to give shots and had a really hard time, so the doc finally told her that she needs to realize that she is saving the babies from future suffering and even death by giving them a small amount of discomfort today.
hmmm...I guess it is kinda like our trials here on earth... We suffer short term so that we can have eternal joy.
sorry, didn't mean to get all spiritual on ya. I just thought that was a good analogy. ;)
I think Travis is a doll!

Travis is so cute. Does she look like Carson's baby pictures? I think they look like each other now. I don't remember any of my kiddos bruising....it WAS a looooong time ago! Adorable family you are!

Awww..I am SO sorry about the shots. I have similar feelings about shots--I HATE them. At least these ones are over, and hopefully as he gets older they won't be quite as bad. He looks so good, can't believe how fast they grow and change. :)
