So big!

We took Little in for his four month vaccinations on Saturday. I was dreading this day and praying that it wouldn't be as bad as his two month ones. They weren't! Hallelujah! He got three more pokes, but only cried for a couple minutes and then he was done! I preempted this round with Tylenol about 20 minutes before the appointment and did not allow more than 4 hours to pass before giving him another dose (see, I learned my lesson)! I even had to wake him up from naps to make sure he stayed comfortable. He did pretty well throughout the day. There was some fussing, but no ugly crying like the last time.

Our little monkey now weighs 14 pounds and is 26 inches long! The pedi says he's doing great and cleared him for starting "solids"! MyLovf insisted on being the first person to give him a spoonful of the ricey goodness.

I think this look says it all!
After about 20 minutes of trying, he finally stopped spitting it back out.
I guess he decided that it's not so bad after all.
He finally got to relax after daddy stopped trying to shove the icky stuff in his face.
This kid is growing up way too fast. ::le sigh::
