#316. Xavier is 2 months today

Two months today, so had his 2 month check up with the pediatrician. Good news is he is doing really well: weight 11 lb 6&1/2 oz (5.3kg, 50th percentile for an American baby), height 23.5 inches (75th percentile) , head circumference 40 cm (also 75th percentile) and Dr remarked how bright and alert he is.

bad news (for Xavi) is that he had to have 3 vaccination shots and one oral vaccine for Hepatitis B, polio, pneumococcal pneumonia, diptheria, tetanus, whooping cough, rotavirus and Hemophilus influenza (13 strains), so he wasn't smiling for long after this pic was taken. At least now he is good to go for the subway!

After some cooler days with record rain earlier in the week we are back to the usual hot and humid August in NYC, with a big tropical thudnerstorm brewing this evening.

  1. What a good boy passing with flying colours. Looks like he's being very co-operative on the examination bed
