Nine Weeks and Sleepy

Arin's weekly "birthdays" are on Sunday, so each new week is another week old. This week he turned nine weeks, and today we had his two-month doctor's visit. Everything went well, he is the picture of health and still the cutest thing ever according to the staff, not to mention extremely happy. The doctor was impressed that he's already giggling (he was having so much fun 'playing' with her during the exam'), and the nurses were talking about how content and happy he is, and said that you can always tell the babies (like Arin) who get lots of attention at home because they are calmer and sweeter. He weighs in at 10 lbs, 11ozs (25th percentile) and is 23 1/2 inches long (75th percentile), with a head circumference of 39 1/2 inches (50th percentile). So, he's very tall and thin still.

Then, unfortunately, he had to get his shots, three of them and a weird drink. My poor baby cried, but only for a little while. And now he's been sleeping most of the day, which is rare since he hardly ever naps (but now he sleeps through the night, finally some rest!). Also, today was the day the cats were neutered, so I have three little baby boys sitting around the house not feeling so great. :(
