2 week well visit

Barrett had his 2 week well visit today at the pediatrician office.  He was right back at his birth weight (8 lbs. 3.5 oz.) which is where he should be.  YAY!!  At his 5 day visit he weighed 7 lbs. 11 oz.  He has grown almost 2 inches in the past couple weeks.  He is 21 1/4 inches long.
He had to get the first hepatitis shot today.  POOR BABY!!  I couldnt even look when they did it.  As soon as they stuck his tiny leg, he started screaming and I started crying!  I felt so awful for him!  :(  Luckily, Ben was there with us.  After that, as if one shot wasn't enough, Barrett had to have his heel pricked for the PKU test.  He didn't like that so much either.  I know all of the shots are for the best but it just hurts seeing your baby hurt.  We don't go back to the pediatrician until Barrett is 2 months old.
