Our first set of shots!!

Right before the doctor came to see him.
Today was Kayl's first time to get his shots. The day started okay as it usually does. Kayl got up at 8:00 and in doing so woke me up. I got dressed then dressed him. To his surprise he didn't go to the living room to lay down he went straight to his carseat. I took him to the car and he was looking around at everything.
When we got to the doctors I signed us in and then we waited for an hour to see Dr. Pratte because he was busy. So while I was waiting I made a mohawk in his hair. He looked so cute.
Finally they called our name so we went back to the room and they weighed him and measured him. Kayl now weighs 11 pounds and is 22 inches long. The doctor then came in and told us that Kayl is in the low percentile for his age but I told him that he eats a lot so Dr. Pratte said that he just has a really great metabolism.
Then came the not so fun part. The nurse brought in the three shots. Right as she opened the door Kayl started crying. I could tell that it was going to be a long car ride home. Then it was one two three and the shots were done. Boy was Kayl mad. He would not stop screaming. The car ride home was a nightmare. When we got home daddy was there and Kayl stopped crying and fell asleep on his shoulder.
I have to do this all over again in 2 months. Good times!!!
