Oh, Did I Tell You You're Getting SHOTS Today?

Yesterday was Henry's two month baby checkup. The entire time I kept thinking, "Seriously how has this happened so fast? How are you two months old already?" The What To Expect books never warned me that although pregnancy feels like it's going to last forrrrrever, once your baby is here time speeds out of control and the most beautiful moments pass you in the blink of an eye.

Henry weighs 11.1 pounds (holy boobs! that's all from momma milk!) and is now 23 inches long! His head weighs in on the small size, which totally makes sense considering the fact that his dad still has to shop for his hats in the kid's section (hee hee.) Don't let the head size fool you though, these Marrs have big brains. Seriously, Henry is already trying to talk and will probably be naming the presidents in chronological order by next month. Is there a Jeopardy: Baby Tournament! yet?

H had to get his first set of vaccines, which was a total bummer for him and equally as traumatizing for his wimp of a mother. Did you know they make you hug pin your child's arms to their chest while they give them the shots?! Worse thing ever, feeling your baby's little body tense up and shake.

After the shots we had lunch with G downtown and everything was better. The weather has been so warm and sunny lately so we were able to eat outside. I bragged about his growth like a proud momma and listened to him sleeping on me in the Bjorn.

It's such a great feeling, realizing that although you had to hold him down for shots, your baby still feels the safest nestled on your chest.

he's so cute, nice work!!!

glad the shots went ok. the holding down part gets worse when they get stronger, just to warn you.

grow henry grow!

Thanks! I hear it also gets harder when they're older because they know what's coming.I swear it's more of an ordeal for me than for him. Whose the REAL baby?! :)

Hi, thanks for your comments.
Your blog is really refreshing!
I really want to have a baby, except one that won't be loud and won't cost me a trillion dollars.

I guess that would mean a plastic one..

Some of those plastic ones pee themselves and spit up, so be careful when shopping! ;)
