2 month appointment

Matthew had his two month shots today and his first "well baby" appointment. Altogether he had seven vaccines - one orally, and the rest combined into two shots.

 

Elizabeth came too, somewhat to the consternation of the doctor and nurse. Apparently toddlers can be protective of younger siblings getting shots. Elizabeth was very good and didn't interfere - instead explaining to Matthew that it was "no big deal" and would help make special white blood cells so he didn't get sick.

 

Matthew was as upset as he's ever gotten after the second shot, but was easily comforted. Elizabeth freaked out every time we changed her diaper for days after her first shots, but Matthew is definitely less worried.

 

He weighs 5.03kg and is 22.8" long.

He is certainly expressive. Mary has graciously refrained from recording some of his other facial expressions ;) But overall, he's a peaceable and lovable soul, great fun for grandparents!
