Two Month Doctor Visit

Today we took Campbell in for his two month checkup. He also had to get his first set of shots. Insert major anxiety from yours truly. I've been dreading that so bad. I gave him some Tylenol before we left the house in hopes it would help him feel better before he got the chance to feel too bad.
The poor baby got poked in both legs and when he did he jerked and arched his back then his face turned bright red and he cried so hard no noise came out. I quickly picked him up and began nursing him and he calmed down almost instantly. I'd heard that nursing immediately after shots helps to comfort them and I'm so glad I read that because it truly helped him so much. We hardly had any crying because of it. I thought he would just nurse for a few minutes but Campbell decided he'd just go on ahead and have his lunch while we were there! Scott was like "this is starting to get awkward...we've been in here a really long time" but I didn't care. He wasn't crying anymore and that's all that mattered to me!!
Campbell now weighs 10 pounds, 8 ounces (7th percentile....still such a tiny little peanut) and is 21.3 inches long (1%). The doctor wanted to remeasure him because he didn't think that seemed right since that would mean he hasn't grown in length at all within the last month but he forgot to remeasure so I guess we won't ever really know. I can tell he's longer though. I mean, of course he is.
My poor baby has been pretty pitiful all day. He's slept a lot but when he's awake he lets out these little whimpers and it's breaking my heart. Campbell fell asleep on the way home from the doctor so I just kept him in his car seat to nap. He woke up at 3:00 and I literally haven't put him down since. My baby just needs to cuddle his Mommy extra close today. I just put him down for bed and I'm praying he wakes up feeling much better tomorrow. If not, I have nowhere to go and nothing to do. If he needs to spend a day in my arms again then I am just fine with that.
