Default 2 month check-up

I took Jake to the Dr this afternoon. He is doing well. He now weighs 12 pds 9 oz and is 23 1/4 inches long. He was 6 pds 12 oz and 20 inches at birth. He has almost doubled in size! The ped said he was in the 75th percentile for weight and height. His little rolls are so cute!! I love chubby babies. My 1st DS was a little tub too. He got 5 vaccines today. His 1st since the hospital. But they only had to poke him 3 times. He did great. He only cried less than a minute and then was asleep on my shoulder before we were out of the Dr office. The nurse was great. She did them all really quick. The only problem we have is that he has a hurnia. His little belly button pokes out. The ped said that it is a small one and that little hurnias like that normally heal themselves and his belly button should recess. I told him the other day he was fussing and straining and it got pretty big. I told him that I touched it and it gurgled which I of course thought was highly strange! He said "Oh, that's just his bowels. When that happens just push his belly button back in" He had me feel it while we were there. He said that only time we have to worry is if we try to push it and it is hard and won't recess back into his tummy or gets really red. It doesn't seem to bother Jake in the least. We don't have to go back until 4 months unless we have a problem. So, all in all it was a good appt. He did really well.

Sounds like a great appoiment. I wouldn't be too concerned about the hernia. My dh, my brother and sister all had hernias. (I wonder why I got so lucky as to not have one. ) It is really common.
