Well not exactly in the dark! More like in the leg (both legs). I'm talking about little Sam getting his 2 month shots today.
I spent the day at my daughter's, visiting and watching little Sam while she ran errands. After lunch, we all went to the pediatrician's office for his 2 month baby checkup.
Sam is growing like a weed. He is almost 10 lbs and has grown 4 inches since he was born. The doctor gave him two thumbs up on his health. And Sam was a real trooper taking his three shots. He cried a little but not as much as I remember my children crying with shots as a baby.
Shots have changed, ladies, since our children were little. As well as I can remember, my babies just had one shot at their 2 month visit. I believe it was their MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) shot. I had to look up online what were in the new shots because everything is more complicated now.
DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis)
Hib (haemophilus influenzae type b)
IPV (polio vaccine)
PCV (pneumococcal conjugate vaccine)
HBV (hepatitis B)
The RV one is an oral medication that Sam just happily slurped down.
Sam is a very content happy baby. He has the most adorable smiles and his eyes twinkle sometimes when he smiles. I am not quite filled up to the brim with baby smiles yet. I will need to top them off some time soon.
PS I'm exhausted and I hope to visit you all tomorrow. xx
