What? I have to get shots?!?

I love this picture, it totally shows what Van must have been thinking when he found out he had to get shots at his 2 month appointment :)

Yesterday, we went to see Dr. G. Van is growing like a weed and is already up to 12lbs 10oz! He is in the 75th percentile for weight, 50th for height and 50th again for head circumference. He is practically perfect in every way :)

He also received two shots yesterday as well as an oral vaccine (we go back for one more shot next week). He did great and only shed a few tears. When we got home he slept and then got really upset when we woke him. Poor guy seemed to be really hurting and his leg was a bit swollen :( After some Tylenol, he went to bed. Normally Van sleeps for 6+ hours at night... not last night. He woke up every 1 1/2 hours. We didn't get much sleep, but it's ok. He just needed a bit of comfort, which we were happy to give. He's just like his Daddy. Kenny hates shots too!

So far today he seems back to his normal self. Not looking forward to next week and having to do this all over again. At least we know our little guy is protected and safe. Sometimes doing the best thing can hurt. Sorry Van!

I love that open-mouthed expression of his!! He's such a cutie! Sorry to hear about the shots :( I HATE shot day. I have anxiety for days ahead of time just thinking of taking them in. I have to take Gabe next week too. I'll be feeling your pain :(

Poor little guy. Nobody likes getting shots. I always give my kiddos some tylenol right before I take them in for vaccines...seems to help some. Anyways, glad Van is back to himself now :)
