BM had his two month check up today and the little guy was a trooper! As he got pricked in each leg, he opened his mouth wide and his face turned bright red. It was as if a mute button turned on. Not a sound was heard for about ten seconds. Then his built up cry surfaced and he let us know how bad it hurt. I wanted to cry with him. I still feel like crying.
BM is our Mini Man. His weight and head size are in the five percentile. His height is in the 37 percentile. The doctor said there is no reason to be concerned since he is a good eater and is healthy.
I'm learning that this mommy thing is not for sissies. Not only do I have to be physically strong to lift a stroller, car seat, and diaper bag but I also have to be emotionally strong and not cry when my baby cries. I guess I'll just have to fake it until I make it.
Check out the band-aids on his little legs.
Now that he is asleep, let's hope he doesn't have nightmares about long needles. What do babies dream about?
