We were a little over due on Mason’s two month check up because of issues with insurance but we went today and I was really anxious to find out Mason’s stats and see how he’s grown over the past month. Looks like we are going to have a mini Mark: tall and slender! He weighs 13lbs 1oz (50th percentile) and is 25 inches long (97th percentile!). He is a tall boy! No wonder his onesies always seem so tight and he’s always got a little ankle showing ;). His dr looked at me with a very confused look on her face and asked “is his dad tall?” While I was pregnant and even before I was pregnant we always joked that we would probably have really tall girls and short boys hahah. I’m glad that’s not the case!
It was tough watching Mason get his shots and clearly be in pain. I guess the only good thing about shots (besides the fact that they will help keep Mason healthy!) is that he’s taken really good naps today. I have been thinking since our appointment how extremely grateful I am for a healthy baby. It would be so hard to have to watch your baby be sick or in constant pain and spend all your time in a doctors office. I feel truly blessed that Mason is healthy and happy.
I’m so grateful for this sweet spirit that fills our home with so much joy. I’m grateful for Mark and his undeniable love for our baby and for all he does to take care of me and Mason. I don’t know what I ever did to deserve these two but I sure am blessed.
