2 Month Checkup

Today was Caleb's Two Month Well Baby Checkup. I was dreading it because he is always pretty hysterical during doctor's appointments. I usually end up having to nurse him just to get him to calm down enough for the doctor to look at him. Keep in mind I fill him up before we ever leave and it is only 15 minutes there. Anyway, he was an absolute dream throughout the appointment. He actually smiled and laughed for the nurse, slept until the doctor got there and then smiled and laughed for the doctor. I was so happy and feeling good about the whole experience. That was until the SHOTS!! Oh my goodness! Caleb got two shots per leg and an oral vaccine. He was right in the middle of an adorable laugh when he got stuck the first time. His face absolutely melted and so did Mommy. I had to hold back the cries and be strong for Caleb. I have NEVER seen or heard Caleb cry like he did today. He was so red and tense. When it was all done I held him until he calmed down enough that I could put him in his carseat. He fell asleep once we got in the car and that warmed my heart. I was happy that he could sleep after all that. Thankfully, he has been pretty good all day. He's even on the floor right now enjoying his Baby Einstein gym. Happy baby noices are the best music ever.

Now we are off to church. Yeah!
