Motherhood --- tales from the front
Gavin had his 2 month doctor appointment yesterday -- weighing in at 15 pounds, 10 ounces and measuring 24.3 inches.
He also got his first round of vaccinations. Don held his hands, one nurse held his legs and the other administered the shots. What did I do? I stood back and averted my eyes and cried. It was a striking moment in which I was hit by the fact that I am his mother and there was nothing I could do but listen to him cry in pain. I can only imagine how much harder parenthood is going to get, but also how much more love we're going to feel for him with each passing week.
