2-month well visit and other

Sammy had his two-month well visit today. I know I have said this before, but it so surreal not to spend an hour in the doctor's office, going over concern after concern. The doctor doesn't even ask how much/when he is eating because he is gaining weight so well. When the doctor left the room I sat in there feeding Sam for a few minutes and wondered, "Why did that seem so weird?"

Anyway, he got his 2-month vaccinations (owie, but necessary) and he weighed 12 lbs. 8 oz. (70th percentile!) and he was 24 inches long (80th percentile!). He "looks great!"

The two little boys and I are heading out in the morning for Road Trip #2! I can't wait! We are going to see family we haven't seen in a while and we are all giddy about it. Dan will join us late Saturday night. Road Trip #3 will take place next week/weekend, and that one will not involve Dan at all. Yes, I am crazy!

Elijah's croup symptoms never turned into anything. I gathered up so much prayer on Monday night that I am convinced that is what saved him from an episode. Almost every single time I predict a croup episode, it happens. Today he seemed 100% healthy, so we will take it!

We mostly likely won't have time to post for the next few days, so I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! If you have extra room on your prayer list, pray that Elijah doesn't have me pulling too much of my hair out on our drive tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, he's a very good kid, but long car rides are very difficult (we learned last weekend) for 3-year-olds.

I am so glad to hear that Sam's Pedi visit went great. I am also glad to hear that Elijah is doing so much better.
Have fun on your road trip and you are crazy to be doing a #3 trip all by yourself :)

Have Fun.

It must be so surreal to go to Sam's check-ups! I'm glad he's doing well and glad Elijah was able to avoid the croup.

Good luck on your road trips, and have lots of fun!
