2 month check-up

Here are a few more pictures of my 10 week old! Elliott had his 2-month check-up this week and weighed in at 13 lbs, 10 oz! That's a whopping 2 lbs heavier than Oliver was at the same age. Otherwise, their height (24 in) and head circumference (40 cm) is almost identical. Elliott also got his first vaccine and it was a biggie. He followed up the appointment by sleeping away the rest of the day. I was actually looking forward to him getting this shot because there has been a whooping cough outbreak up here, including some cases at the elementary school two blocks away, so I was eager for him to get his first round of the pertussis vaccine. Oliver was very interested in the whole appointment and wanted me to get a shot along with Elliott.

On a side note, Oliver has started singing songs to Elliott whenever he cries, usually "Baa, Baa Black Sheep" or "Twinkle, Twinkle". This evening I mentioned that Penny looked sad (because Nick hadn't given her much attention when he got home from work) and Oliver went over to her and sang "Baa, Baa Black Sheep" to her. I'm sure it made her feel much better :)
