Yesterday my little baby boy had his two month check up. I knew that this meant shots were coming his way, so pre-appointment we took baby shopping as a way to say "Sorry for what's to come." I know he didn't understand, but it made me feel a little less guilty. I found him the cutest bib I have ever seen, it says "Star of Mommy's blog" on it, how freakin' appropriate is that! After the shopping we grabbed something to eat and took baby to his pediatricians office.
He was all smiles through his whole exam. They told us that his growth was right on track, and his pediatrician was impressed with his hand coordination. She said that what he was doing usually didn't come until about 3 months of age, so he was advanced. After all of that, he had to get his vaccinations. I had been stressing about this appointment for so long, and when they stuck baby he screamed and started to cry. Between shots he looked like he was going to calm down, and then they stuck him again. Anthony and I were holding him in place so he wouldn't jerk, and it broke my heart to see his poor little eyes swell up with tears. I was so so very sad that my little one had to deal with this. I know babies get this done everyday, but when it's your little honey bun, it seems like torture.
Once we got home, Alonzo was a little emotional, and for a while nothing would sooth him. My husband brought in the fan and I rocked baby until he finally fell asleep. I held my little papas in my arms all night until it was time to go to sleep, and then I put him in bed with us. I think the greatest feeling came to me when I realized that the only thing that would make him feel better was being with mommy and daddy. It sounds a little lame, but everyone needs to feel needed every once in a while, and I was so happy that I could be there for my little cutie pie.
