Gavin's eight-week check up was a week and a half ago. My teeny, tiny baby now weighs 12 1/2 pounds and is 24 inches long. Every mother I've ever known has said that her baby grew too fast, but I just smiled politely and nodded. Why didn't someone warn me that my baby would grow too fast?!
Those of you who are parents probably recall what else happens at this monumental appointment. A nurse walks in with a huge syringe and jams it into your sweet angel baby's leg....and then the screaming begins. I've heard Gavin scream quite a bit, but never like this soul-peircing, terrified, painful scream. I damn near lost it. Guess who's taking him in for his boosters?!
