3 Months

I can't believe Bryson is already 3 months old! He changes so much everyday! We took him to his 2 month well check this past Wednesday. He was a little behind because Josh's new insurance didn't start until February 1st. He weighs 16 pounds and is 26 3/4 inches long. (When he was born he was 8 pounds, 21.5 inches long) He's done a lot of growing in the past couple months! He's in the 90th percentile for his age. He's just a big boy! He had to have 3 shots. :[ The first one went ok, but after the second one he was screaming. We had to wait over 2 hours for the whole appointment. It was terrible. Poor baby missed his nap and we almost ran out of milk in his bottle. I was trying to save the last little bit for after the shots because I knew it would calm him down. He only had about an ounce to enjoy after the shots, but it calmed him down enough for him to fall asleep. Once he woke up though.... Wow. He woke up screaming. He wouldn't calm down to nurse, so I had to make him another bottle. He went right back to sleep after his bottle (which doesn't ever happen) so I know those shots were messing with him. When he woke up the next time, he woke up in even more pain. His little leg was SO red and he was just screaming in pain. Josh ran to CVS and got him some infant Tylenol. You couldn't even touch anywhere near his little leg without him getting upset. After I gave him the Tylenol, he went back to sleep. When he woke up, he was in a much better mood. I am so glad that Tylenol worked!! It took the redness away and everything. He slept through the night just fine. ("Sleeping through the night" does not mean he slept the whole night.. just means he went back to sleep each time he woke up ;]) He will have to go back at the end of March for his next set of shots. This time it will only be 2 and I hope they don't hurt him as much. Next time I'll be prepared with Tylenol!
Bryson is now wearing size 9 month clothes. He can fit in 6 month, but the pants are getting shorter every day. He laughs, coos, smiles, squeals, and follows us around with his eyes. He loves sucking on his hands. He grabs things and tries to put everything in his mouth. He likes watching cartoons in the morning now. Daddy keeps putting it on Nick Jr instead of Disney and Mommy is going to have a fit about that if he doesn't stop! I like Nick Jr, but Disney is my absolute favorite of course and I want Bryson to watch Mickey Mouse!! Josh and Bryson have their morning routine down pat with no problems. I am so glad Bryson is at home and not at daycare!! God is good! Josh enjoys his job and I enjoy mine since my baby is at home!
