Two-Week Pediatrician Visit

JJ saw the pediatrician today for his 2-week check-up.  He now weighs 8 lbs 13 oz, which is around the 50th percentile.  His head circumference and length are also right in the middle.  We love our average little boy!
JJ started the appointment with a bang: upon getting undressed for his weigh-in, he revealed a poopy diaper!  But JJ behaved well for his physical exam and didn't even pee on the doctor :) Win.
The visit took a turn when he had his heel pricked to draw blood.  He was sleeping on my shoulder and that stick was a very rude awakening.  And as the nurse squeezed blood out of his heel for the next several minutes, JJ wailed like I had never heard before.  Poor little dude.  We came home and he slept for the next several hours.  Hopefully all is forgotten by now.  I can only imagine how much fun he'll have at his next appointment when he gets a vaccine in each limb ...


  1. He is too precious for words. Can't wait to see him in a couple of weeks. Hugs and kisses, Grandma

  2. Hi Andy and Stephanie: Thank you for posting the beautiful pictures of your new family. I have been enjoying them and anticipate any new additions to the blog. He is a beautiful baby and you make a beautiful family. Take care of that little guy. Time flies by and before you know it, they are off and running, so take one day at a time. Love Aunt Kathy
