Shots and Stuff











Crockett went to see our sweet Dr. Sultemeier on May 27 for his two month check-up. He is growing like crazy! My baby weighs 12 lbs 10 oz and is 23 in. I cannot believe that in 2 months time he has ALMOST doubled his birth weight and grown ALMOST 4 inches!! He also had to get his 4 immunizations, 3 shots and 1 oral. The first shot went ok (I did NOT watch!) and the second 2 really bothered him! His face turned bright red and he tried to scream, but nothing came out, his tongue just shook in his mouth. It was awful and I was so relieved when it was over. The nurse was wonderful and so fast, for which I was very appreciative. He still did not feel very good today and ran a temperature of about 100. Poor baby.

We also took our first long distance road trip last weekend to see Chris' cousin, Leslee, get married. I went to the wedding, while Chris and Crockett stayed in the hotel room... The wedding was very pretty. Crockett did so good in the car and at the hotel. He slept until 5 a.m. without waking up! It startled me that he had not woken up, but I guess he was just worn out! Crockett also got to meet KK and Uncle Buck for the first time (Kelly and Brendan). They live in Washington D.C. and have not been able to come see the little guy until now! Crockett definately enjoyed his Auntie and Uncle. Brendan even got him to laugh, which doesn't happen too often yet!

Congratulations to my sisters, Monica, for being done with school and officially becoming a stay-at-home mom, and Rachel, for making the move to Dallas! Monica, I am so excited for you and I can't wait for our first road trip with 2 or 3 boys in tow :) Rachy, I can't believe you live in Dallas! That road trip mentioned above will probably be to visit you.... find us some great places to shop and are you ready for all of us :)

Jessica,
Sydney did about the same as Crockett. She turned bright red and screamed. We gave her some baby tylenol and she slept after that. Love the pics and blog. I need to get my own started.

Those little band-aids are so sad! I'm glad that you both made it through it! Hope he feels better now!
