Healthy Baby! 2 Month Check-Up

Cooper had his 2 month check-up today! Can you believe that he is 2 months already? He weighed in at 13 lbs. 4 oz. and 23 1/2 inches long! Both in the 75th percentile. He is meeting all of his milestones and the doctor said that he looked great! He even flashed her a smile. :) He got a couple of shots today, but not all of them. We are following Dr. Bob Sears's alternative vaccination schedule outlined in his book "The Vaccine Book" for Cooper-which reduces the amount of shots that they get at an appointment, but results in a fully vaccinated child when it is all said and done. So basically, he gets one live virus vaccine, and one aluminum containing vaccine at each appointment. It means more trips to the doctor, but it also means his system won't be overloaded with metals and viruses at one time. So, we go back next month for a "shots only" appointment to make up the difference.

So all is well with Mr. Cooper! He is growing great, and is a happy, healthy, BIG boy!! :)
