My Baby Love

Well, we went to our 2 month check up yesterday. It went well. Here are the official stats:
Height- 22 3/4 in 25-50 percentile
Weight- 13 lbs 10 oz 75-90 percentile
Head- 40 25-50 percentile
The doctor was very impressed with his strength and growth. Way to grow Alex! :)

The sad part was that he got 2 of his vaccines. This was very difficult for Mommy. I cried. He cried. We held each other. He got two lil Tasmanian devil band aides on his chubby lil thighs. :( He actually did a good job and fell asleep quickly after. He was really tired which helped.
We have struggled with the idea of even giving Alex his vaccines at all (given all the controversy), but we have opted for an alternative, more spread out, schedule. And we are picking which ones we want to give him. Who knows what is right or safe...we can only pray that the Lord will take care of Alex and guide us in the right direction. I do know that it was not fun and I am not looking forward to more shots. As, I am sure, Alex is not either.

Really TOO big for the baby bath tub!
Sweet dreams
There were just too many cute pictures to pick one so I put a bunch in the slide show. He was having so much fun! This is a fun stage and I really enjoy hanging out with my bud.

Hey guys, I missed the contest, coach. I've generally thought he looks like Travis, but the big pic that's up now shows a LOT of Skeeters!!!

Wow, he is getting so big. He has Mya beat! She is 13 How are things going? I had to make a blogspot for Mya. I loved the idea.
We are doing the same thing with the vaccines. Glad to know we aren't alone. :) Hope to hear from you soon!---Brandy (not Ryder) lol

I would love to go to the library with you guys! That sounds like a ton of fun. Mya gets read to every night and she loves it, okay, well, I like to think that she does. She shows me by kinda looking at the pictures and staring at the drapes. lol We are going through a lot of the same things and yes, I could talk for hours, if I only had time to just take a shower! lol You look great too!! Talk to you soon!
