We were back at the pediatrician's office yesterday. This time it was just for Jackson's four month check-up and another round of vaccinations. I am not one of those mothers who will choose to skip vaccinations for her children. Jackson (and any brothers or sisters he eventually has) will get vaccinated. Despite all the controversy, I trust that they are as safe as can possibly be. That being said, it is still heart-breaking and scary to have it done. Jackson was in such a great mood yesterday, talking up a storm as if he was actually having a conversation with the doctor. It just killed me to have him stuck three times with needles when he has no idea why it's happening. He screamed his head off and just looked at Scott and me with such sad eyes. Fortunately, within a few hours he was back to his normal, playful self. I breathed a sigh of relief that we made it through another round of vaccines.
Jackson was also weighed and measured at the appointment. My little growing boy is up to almost 17 pounds and 26 inches long! No wonder I'm beginning to have a hard time lugging his carseat around! We also were told that we can start Jackson on rice cereal. We picked some up at the grocery store last night and, after Scott assembles the high chair, we'll be trying it this weekend. Don't worry, there will be lots of pictures taken, some of which we will be using as blackmail material when he is a teenager. Hehe!
