A shot in the dark

Today was my second visit to the pediatrician. I weighed in at 6 lb 7 oz, and I'm now 19.5 inches long. Compared to my low of 4 lb 8 oz on Day 1, I've increased my weight more than 40% in three weeks! I'm now at the 3rd percentile in weight, 10th percentile in length -- catching up after being born 3 weeks early.

I got my first vaccination today, for Hepatitis B. Usually they give that at birth, but Mom and Dad decided I'd been through enough for one day and put it off. I was a little scared, since the needle looked nearly as long as my leg is thick, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be. I still screamed, though. You have to keep up appearances.
