Off the Charts
Caedmon had his two months doctor appointment yesterday. It was not a fun one - he received 5 vaccinations.:( He screamed, and it was his "this hurts, what are you doing to me?!" scream. I almost cried with him. I keep wondering if we did the right thing and feel like I should have done more research. I know quite a few people who have opted out of vaccinations, and my family, immediate and extended, didn't get them growing up. On top of putting all those foreign things into his body yesterday, we had to give him Tylenol last night to help with the pain.:( Poor baby!
But I guess there was a fun part to the visit. He weighed 14lbs.6oz. and measured 25 3/4 inches long! The doctor always brings up a scale to show where he is percentile wise. I'm told he's in a percentile all his own! His weight is at least near the 5th percentile, but his height is off the charts! Doc says he's going to be tall. I wonder if at some point he'll slow down and let all the other kids his age catch up, or if he'll just keep going!
