2 month doctor's appointment

We had Zach's 2 month doctor appointment on Friday. He is now 10 lbs 14 oz and 22.5 inches tall. He's gained 4 pounds and grown more than 3 inches. Great news!

The not so great news:

Zach's head is flat on the back, which means that we need to do more tummy time so that it will hopefully round out. The doctor didn't seem too concerned. He has Torticolis, which means that a muscle on the left side of his neck is tight, preventing him from turning his head to the left. The doctor told me a few stretches to try and is referring us to Early Intervention. They will come to the house and teach us more stretches. Also, he is a little bit cross-eyed so we got a referral for a pediatric opthmalogist. The doctor is pretty certain that all these issues will resolve easily, but is being proactive, which I really like.

Zach got 3 shots and an oral vaccine at his appointment. He liked the oral vaccine and the Tylenol they gave him before the shots. However, the shots, not so much. He did the silent scream and the nurse had to blow in his face to get him to breathe. Every time. Poor little guy. He cried all the way to the car, but fell asleep and stayed asleep in his carseat for over an hour after we got home. First time I've seen him cry real tears and it was so so sad.  He was fussy and sleepy all day Friday, yesterday, and today. No fever though.
