Shots :-(

Today Luke had his 2 month checkup and shots. It was NOT fun! The dr. visit took forever, so he started to get a little fussy laying on the table for so long. After Dr. Hunke talked to us and told us how great Luke was doing, it was time for the nurse. I had to hold Luke's arms down (because she said he had long arms and would grab the shot!). He SCREAMED bloody murder when she stuck him with the needle. Thank goodness she was fast...but, still....2 shots in one leg and 1 in the other (and an oral one that he took like a trooper!). I felt so bad. I couldn't get him to calm down after the shots. I finally had to just let him continue to scream while I got him dressed again. Poor thing! Maybe next time I can talk Memaw and Grandpa into coming and taking him!
On a good note...he was weighed and measured! Luke now weighs 11 lbs 15 oz (just an ounce shy of 12 lbs!) and is 23 inches long. He is a growing boy! Dr. Hunke said that around 12 lbs is when they start sleeping more hours through the night! Hallelujah!!! Although, he does a good job at night...he usually only wakes Mommy up once!
Here is a picture of him worn out after his shots. Poor thing!
