Today was my 1-month doctor’s appointment. Mommy and I had to get up a little early to get ready. I do not like when mommy wakes me up early because she turns on all of the bright lights. Once I got my breakfast, I was much better and I got to wear my cute outfit that Grandma got me. Remember last Tuesday when I told you all that mommy and daddy kept talking about a big surprise. Mommy is the one that got the surprise not me, I did not have to have any shots! Boy was I glad. The doctor told mommy that we would wait until my 2-month checkup for the shots. Once mommy found this out, she was relieved. But I had to get naked so that that I could be weighed. Boy, how embarrassing is that to have to be naked and the room is so cold. Of course, mommy just had to take a picture. The doctor said that I have gained 1 oz every day since my last appointment, which means that I now weigh 8 lbs 8 oz.
The doc says this is very good. He had many great things to say about me. He checked my eyesight and said that my ability to focus was great. I even showed him how I could follow his little light with my eyes. He put me on my belly and I showed him how strong I was by doing what the doctor called “baby pushups.” I even held my head up and looked at him while he was talking to me. He said that my leg strength was outstanding, because I was bearing my weight on them. He told mommy that many babies do not start to do this until they are 2 to 3 months old.
Mommy was proud of me for showing the doctor how many milestones I had reached. And I was glad that I didn’t have to have any shots.
