Today was Talmage's 6 week visit to the doctor. He won't be 6 weeks until Sunday, but his appointment was today, so here are his stats!
Height: 22 3/4 inches (75th percentile)
Weight: 10 pounds, 8 ounces (50th percentile)
Cuteness Level: OFF THE CHARTS!!! (Well, we think so anyway...:)
He also had to get the 6 immunizations, and I think it hurt me almost as much as it hurt him! He was brave, though, and stopped crying about 10 seconds after the first poke, only to be poked again, cry for another 10 seconds, and then be poked again with the worst of the three. I wish there were a way I could get the shots in his behalf. So after a trip to the park this afternoon and a nice, warm bath to help the shots feel good, I put him in his pajamas early this evening and he was all smiles! He seems to be recovering well from this morning's trauma.
I was very surprised to see how much he weighs...he gained 3 pounds, 1/2 ounce in just 27 days, even though his feedings only last 15 minutes or less! What an efficient guy. The doctor also said his straining and digestive upheaval should ease up in another month or two. Interestingly, after all the trauma he experienced this morning, he has hardly strained all day!
