Carter had an appointment at the doctor's office today for his Synagis injection, which protects him against RSV. He was weighed before the shot: 6 pounds, 4 ounces! He's within the range of a small newborn now, which is so amazing to me.
He didn't like the shot, of course. He scrunched up his face and cried, but hardly made a sound. He turned purple, and looked so terribly upset. He was poked and prodded so much in the NICU, and I know this little shot was nothing compared to what he experienced then. But still, it's been a while, and he definitely had a strong reaction to it. It was hard to see him so upset, even though I know this was a relatively small thing.
I have some more pics and video, since the last post didn't have any. Look at my big boy!
Here he is in his car seat. He pretty much hates riding in the car!
Here he is with Doug's hand on his head.
Here he is with Doug's hand on January 21, as a comparison.
Carter sits in his high chair by the table at dinner, and if we're lucky he sleeps through dinner.
Look at this face!
Here are two short videos. In the first, Carter was laying on the couch and being cute just before feeding time. He got a little fussy at the end, heh.
And here he is in his high chair, asleep. I don't know if you can hear it, but he's snoring. Awww...
I took him by campus today to show him off while running a couple of errands, and he was a big hit. It was really weird to walk down those halls with him after everything that's happened in the last couple of months!
