Doctor's appointment

Just a quick update today since I'm working through most of my lunch to make up for time I missed while at Jacob's doctor's appointment. It went well and she was happy with how he's doing. He's 12 pounds and 23-1/2 inches long. He survived his immunizations - four shots and one oral one. He was not a happy camper, and he bled like crazy...the nurse had to replace both of his band-aids. Poor thing. I took him home on the way back to day care and gave him a little Tylenol, just so he wasn't miserable for the people at day care. He seemed to calm down a bit afterward and fell asleep on the five minute drive from the house to day care. He hadn't eaten much and wouldn't sleep this morning, so hopefully he'll conk out this afternoon for them a bit. As far as his gas problems go, we have a couple formula samples to try to see if that helps him a bit. He hasn't pooped again in a couple days, though the doctor didn't seem that concerned about it, but it still bothers me! I'll feel better when he stops doing this screechy cry that he does when he's gassy. So yeah, everything went well, and we don't have to go back for another two months (knock on wood)...he'll be such a big boy by then....crazy!
