Bouncing Baby Boy

Asher and I went to the pediatrician’s office today. At 15 weeks, he now weighs 17 pounds 8 ounces! Holy cow! The doc said that’s the 96 percentile for weight. He is also 23.5 inches long.

Everything about him is healthy and fine. I was congratulated on my super-nutritious milk. Poor Asher got a shot (a combo of five vaccines) and an oral vaccine. I didn’t let them give him the other two injections they wanted to give him today. I think eight new substances is too many for a 3-month-old person to have to deal with. Sadly, we’ll have to go back in a few weeks for more shots. I hate this part of being a parent.

He’s doing ok but he’s definitely not his usual sunny self today,
