Apparently, Courben needed to find some humor in the ‘shots’ day. Thankfully for him, his next appointment at nine months will be immunization-free. All in all, he was very brave, though. Doc says he’s strong, alert, and looking chubby, despite his drop to the tenth percentile in weight. 15 pounds and 253/4 inches seems big to me! She just said we’ll keep an eye on him. The kicker of the day was when she left our room, she waved. Guess who flapped his arm right back! You got it, our little charmer of a boy. She was quite thrilled.
