Two-months, vaccinations, vital stats, etc.

Last Friday, I took Josiah to the doctor to have his two-month checkup. This visit not only entailed doing all of the regular stuff (e.g., weight, height, general health, etc.), but was the visit where Josiah had to get his vaccination shots.

Truthfully, Josiah handled it really well. He had a blast while at the doctor’s office — he was laughing and smiling at everyone and everything. And, when it came time to get his shots, he only cried a little. Now, he’s got a few red spots on his legs, where he received the shots and there’s a couple of really hard “knots” under his skin. The doctor has assured us that, while this doesn’t happen to every baby, it’s pretty normal.

Eight-weeks old...

Yesterday, Josiah turned eight-weeks old. His two-month doctor’s appointment is this Friday! (Where, among other things, he’ll be getting some of his vaccines.)

Anyway, yesterday, Julianna, Grandma Cathy, and I took Josiah to Adventure Oasis, a new water park in Independence, MO. The day turned out to be a cooler one — cloudy and maybe 75 degrees at its hottest — but we still had a lot of fun.

Here are some photos of our day out…

I like to smile at Mommy & Daddy now!

Sometime over the last couple of days, Josiah has started to respond to us. One of the most delightful responses is when he smiles. Julianna took this photo while making him smile by tickling his chin.

He loves to watch us walk around and follow our movements too.
