Happy 1/2 Birthday to me!

Today is my half birthday and I'm going to celebrate by doing 1/2 my laundry, clean 1/2 the house and cook 1/2 a dinner. Ha Ha Ha. (I am delirious from lack of sleep)

Andrew has been doing really well with his sleeping. Some of you might remember my previous post when I explained how we were starting sleep training. It took him two nights but after that he has been sleeping for 10 hours every night non- interrupted(for the most part) for three weeks. It's been heaven!
Yesterday we went to the doctor for his 4 month visit, and she told us what we already knew. He's PERFECT! But sadly he had to get his vaccinations (3 shots in one leg and 2 in the other :( and that is why we were up from 3- 5:30am. Poor guy, even though he seemed fine last night I gave him some Tylenol before he went to sleep. He woke up at 3 crying, so Nick went in and tried to sooth him but after he was still crying 10 minutes later( he never does that) we gave him some more Tylenol thinking that the medicine had worn off. He stopped crying and was quite for 10 min when he started up again. By this time he was up for almost an hour and I went and got him, I couldn't bear the thought of him hurting. It was definitely the shots that kept him up, you could tell that he was uncomfortable all over. About a little more than an hour after that we put him back down and he is still sleeping.
He was such a champ at the doctor, he didn't even make a peep at the first shot and then just little whimpers the last four. Here are his stats from the Doc:

Weight: 17.8 lbs 90%tile
Height: 25 1/2 the doctor said between 50 and 70%, so I'll take that as 60%tile
Head: I don't remember (the paper is in my car) but I think it was in the 60%tile as well

I hate when Lilly has to get shots, too. But I just tell myself it's because I love her and care about her health. And after a day she's fine.
Happy 1/2 b-day. I hope you really did things by half. Fun way to celebrate.
