Today was Aaron's 2 month doctor visit. Boy has he changed in 2 months!! He is now 6.27 kg (13.8 lbs) and 61 cm (24 in). He has gained about 2 pounds in the last month! The doctor was very pleased. Danny looked up some percentile information and discovered that Aaron is in the lower percentile for American babies. However, he is happy, healthy and growing. That is all that matters. Besides, he is in the top percentages here (small wonder! ha ha).
He is no longer on medicine for acid reflux, and we haven't had to give colic drops for quite some time. Thank you all for your prayers! Dr. Toh was also pleased to see his bright, smiling face watching her. The only down side was his vaccine shot. Ow! That hurt. We have some medicine to give for any potential side affects to the vaccine. It is a 5-in-1 shot that covers the normal childhood illnesses. The pertussis part could cause fever and pain. He has a slight fever tonight, but doesn't seem to be in pain. These symptoms should only last a day or two. Be praying that God will provide quick relief of symptoms! Our next scheduled appointment is June 1st for another dose of vaccine. According to Dr. Toh, the symptoms increase in severity with subsequent injections. Thankfully he only has a couple more to go!
