Nate’s two-month well child visit was this last Thursday. The big boys actually had the day off from school for some reason, so they ended up coming along. Everyone was in a GREAT mood, especially Ben.
Nate is growing well. He was 13 lb 11 oz. He has just begun smiling and cooing. He’s doing all the things a two month old should do. So then it was time for his two month shots.
Nate is too young for flu shots, so she recommended that the rest of the family get flu shots. So then she asked if we would like the other boys to get theirs while they were all there.
What a great idea! We broke the news to the big boys that EVERYONE would be getting a shot, not just Nate. They were understandably unhappy, especially Jonny who just recently got 4 shots in preparation for kindergarten. I felt very sorry for poor Ben who was in such a happy mood when we got there. Fortunately, he cheered up quickly after his shot.
The big boys were brave, and we made a quick trip to Target to get them a reward. Isaac chose a Bakugan (from the reward cupboard at home since they were all sold out at Target as usual), and Jonny chose some Pokemon cards. And we don’t have to think about shots again for another year!
