Sam's goes to the Doctor on Friday and to Atlanta on Saturday!

Sam had his 2 (technically 2 1/2) month check up Friday. At work Friday morning I had my American Pediatric book out studying up on what types of shots he would get. I guess I somehow thought if I prepared myself it would make it better, I was wrong. When we got to the Dr. Sam was super happy, he had no clue what was ahead of him! He weighed 11 pounds and 7 ounces and is 23 3/4 inches long. His head measurement and weight is in the 50th percentile and height in the 75th which isn't a surprise to anyone who knows us! After that Dr. Bob examined him and said that everything looked great! We addressed (once again) his gassiness and are on to more remedies to try...currenty we are on half soy and half regular formula and happy to report that since Saturday he has had wonderful days!

We had a family photo shoot scheduled for Saturday morning but it was raining so we will do that at a later date. We went to Atlanta Saturday afternoon to visit uncle Jeffrey and aunt Stef. Sam slept the entire way there and was a wonderful baby. We opted not to take his travel swing since we had a feeling there would be lots of baby holding with grammie, grandmother, pops, uncle Jeffrey and aunt Stef and that was a good decision. Sam did really good and slept the entire way home as well. I was a little concerned last night since he had slept so much that he wouldn't sleep but he did great! The time change has a whole new meaning for Frazier and I. I used to adjust pretty well but then again I used to sleep a whole lot more too!

All in all we had a wonderful weekend and Sam is doing great!! I attached a video of us playing with Sam! His personality is evolving so much and what we thought was a cough we now think will be his is so precious!


  1. Everly had horrible gas! The only thing that worked for her was Gripe Water (the Mother's Bliss name brand). It worked great and she would suck it down.

  2. Yes, with Allie the only thing that worked was the Gripe Water and it was my life saver!!! I don't know if I could have made it without it. I look forward to your future blogs!
