Shot 3 times

Well, Luca had his shots yesterday. He got 3 needles again. Jacquie was there to hold him for me and she said that he didn't cry for the first one, but then he figured out what was going on. Poor guy. My heart was breaking just hearing him cry down the hallway. Nature really makes it so that you can pick out your own child's cry among others...interesting.

He has been sleeping lots since his shots ( a side effect, I guess). He slept 8 hours straight last night, and then ate and went another 7.5 between feedings. He was up for about 2 hours and then fell back asleep for another 2 and a half hours before eating again. But, he is not fussy like he was last time (yet) so I will take the sleeping any day!

Luca weighs 17lbs 6 oz. He is in the 90th percentile for weight (down a bit from the 97th at 2 months) and is in the 60th percentile for height at 25 inches.

We also saw our family doctor yesterday and she confirmed that the doctor that we will be seeing at the U of A next week is a pediatric surgeon. So, now that it is confirmed that the lump will be removed and not drained, we are worried about that. It is hard to think of our little baby going through surgery at 4 months. I am sure that the doctor is great (in fact, I have heard that he is) and that he will be able to answer many questions and hopefully calm some anxiety when we see him on Tuesday.
