Dr's. Appointment

We went to our 4 month check-up yesterday which actually turned out to be ALOT better then expected. He of course got his shots but only cried till mommy picked him up. He cried for awhile at his 2 month shots but Jacob thinks he cried more because the nurse put Hello Kitty bandaids on, this time he got batman. As far as his allergies and ear-infections were concerned, one ear was completly healed and the other was just a little read. So, we will be going to see Nurse Aunt Stef on sunday to see if it is better. Everything looked really good and we don't have to go back till 6 months!!
