2 month checkup

Dylan had his 2 month checkup today. I think it's a little funny that his checkup with his pediatrician was scheduled for today because it was exactly 2 months ago that he had his surgery. He's still doing really well. He got mad with anything they did, but that's probably partially because he had been asleep when we got to the doctor's office. He really got mad when the doctor took him to examine him. He wanted his mom, didn't want to go to the doctor. And he really didn't like getting the shots at all. Took a few minutes to get him calmed down after that. Molly and Lys, on the other hand, had a great time playing with the toys in the waiting room. I was surprised that they didn't complain when I told them it was time to leave.

Dylan is now 23 inches long and weighs 11 pounds, 8 ounces. He has gained about 4 pounds in a month. He went from being at about the 10th percentile for weight to hitting the average. He is average height and his head size went from about the 25th percentile to average, as well.

His next appointment with the cardiologist is on Halloween and I take him back to the pediatrician on the 8th of December unless we find out he gets the synagis shot to prevent RSV and then I will take him back in sooner. (The doctor told me to call next week when the lady who keeps track of those things for him is back to work.)

WOW!! He's gaining it quick. I'm glad that things are going so well for you all. FYI: The Synagis is sooooo expensive! Our insurance covers 80% of it, and our portion (20%)is almost $800 a month! Just a heads-up for the beginning of next year. I'm sure you've hit your deductible for this year already. I wish we would have known to plan ahead. Hopefully you have better insurance than we do!
