He’s been shot!!

LOL – don’t panic! Robbie had his 2-month well-baby exam today and he is very healthy and growing! He weighed in at 13 pounds and was 23 inches long! After the doctor was done looking him over, we went to the Immunization clinic for his first 5 shots. He did very well with them and only cried a little bit. Of course, thanks to Mom’s help, I gave him a dose of Infant Tylenol BEFORE we went for the shots!
NOTE: Don’t go out for dinner with your infant if said infant had shots earlier in the day. Ryan and I went to Famous Dave’s BBQ for dinner – our first time there. The service and food were both awesome, but Robbie started getting fussy (he usually sleeps through dinner when we go out). Ryan took him outside and I got a couple of to-go boxes and paid for our meal. I did manage to eat most of the rest of mine before Ryan came back in, but we took about 1/2 of Ryan’s home. He’ll take it for lunch tomorrow.
I hope everyone remembered to vote today! If you didn’t – oh well. It’s too late now – unless you’re on the west coast. . .

Before I forget, here are links to a few pictures from Halloween:

Happy November!!

I saw an Army doctor yesterday morning and got another extension on my maternity leave – one more week home with Robbie!! YAY!! I’ll be going back to work next Monday, Nov. 8. Happy November to everyone – although it doesn’t feel like November here. It got up to 85 yesterday and is supposed to be almost as warm today. WHEN IS FALL GONNA GET HERE??????????? I’d love to be home in MI right now with the nice cool fall weather and changing leave colors and everything. And yes, even the snow! Only a month and a half until I go home for 2 weeks at Christmas. . . I can’t wait!

I went to my first EGA meeting since I’ve had Robbie. Of course, I took him with me as I knew all the ladies would want to see him and hold him and everything. He was a really good boy during the meeting and enjoyed all the attention before and after! I think he’s going to be an outgoing & social little boy. Oh, if you don’t know what EGA is, it stands for Embroiderer’s Guild of America.
