2 weeks old

Shepherd is 2 weeks today. We had our 2 week check-up at the doctor's office to see how things are going. Shepherd is a healthy little boy. His birth weight was 7 lbs, 10 oz. Today, he weighed 8 lbs, 7 oz.... so DAD-GUM! My boy is growing fast!!! He's in the 50th percentile in weight, length, and head circumference, so he's a perfect little cube. The hardest part about the visit was his Hep-B shot. I think it hurt me worse than it hurt him, because I couldn't help but cry. Poor little fella didn't cry when they put the needle in... no.. he didn't start crying until the nurse started injecting the stuff into his thigh. And boy did he scream. For the first time, I understood what moms everywhere talk about when they say they can feel their child's pain. I literally hurt watching him get the shot... but after the shot, with his pacifier, Shepherd calmed down, and stopped crying.
He's been fine since... in fact, he's sitting in his swing, watching the little star thing that hangs down over him. I swear he's the cutest little guy EVER!!!!


I love brownies... mmmmm, good!

It's been two weeks? Wow...that went by fast (for me, but probably not for you guys).

And I think you guys have the same car seat we have. Do you like it?

Oh, I did the same thing when Lilly had her first heel stick. She turned purple from crying and couldn't breath. I cried just watching her pain. It was awful. I'm not looking forward to the 2-month appointment when she gets her immunizations. I don't think I'll sleep that night for fear of her stopping breathing. My cousin died of SIDS the night he was immunized and although I know the studies show SIDS and autism are not related to immunizations, it still scares me a little.
