Two Month Checkup

Yesterday, I took SJ for his two month checkup.  He got a great report from Dr. Colon!  He's meeting all his milestones, is very healthy, and is - of course - growing like a little weed.  Here are his stats:
Weight: 15 lbs, 1 oz  - 95th percentile
Length: 23.25 in - 90th percentil
Head Circumference: 16 in - 50th percentile

He's the little big man!

My only big concern was his terrible ingrown toenail...
but Dr. Colon said that's still considered "normal" and, since it wasn't infected, to just keep rolling the skin back and letting the nail grow out on its own.  Hopefully it will clear up soon!  It looks so painful, but it doesn't appear to bother him in the least, so that's good.

SJ also got his first big round of immunizations at this appointment.  I started him on the infant Tylenol in the waiting room and kept it going for 12 hours afterwards, and he seemed to do fine.  He barely cried when they gave him the shots, but he did act like his thighs were sore when I massaged them later.  The soreness was his only real side effect, though.
