Welcome to Leo's blog!
Hello friends and family!
We thought it would be a good idea to put together a blog for all of our friends and family to keep up with our little one's development and adventures! He may only be 4 months old right now, but he has already had lots of fun and we would love to share with all of you.
Leo had his 4 month check-up this morning. That means shots. Ewww! Anyone that knows me knows how I am with needles ~ not so good. Leo had shots at birth and then at his two month appointment. I happened to have to use the bathroom (very convenient and totally planned) at "shot time" during his two month appointment so Jeremy was with Leo for those shots. This morning I took him by myself and it was just fine. He did a great job and we love our nurses. They double teamed him, it was awesome. He had to get 4 shots, two in each thigh. Each, round, fat, rolley thigh. One of the nurses joked that they shouldn't have a problem finding some fat to stick the needles in. So, the nurses counted 1..2..3 and then stuck him. Poor guy. He really didn't seem to notice the first round. Then again, 1...2...3, poke! He did notice this round. He cried for a couple of minutes, then he was fine. I stayed in the room for about 10 minutes and soothed him. He is much tougher than his mother.
He weighed in at 18 lbs, 6 oz. That is in the 97 percentile for children his age. Yep, he is a big boy. A big, healthy, happy boy!
