2 months old and sick

So Ethan turned 2 months on February 5, 10 days ago, I was late in calling the doctor, so he didn't have his 2 month check up until last Wednesday the 13th. 
2 month stats:
Weight- 12 lbs 5 oz 53%
Height- 23.5 in 57%
Head circ- 39 cm 33%

What a day that was for him!  He got 4 shots in the leg and one oral injection.  He is behind one shot because they were out of stock.  He cried while getting the shots, but then I picked him up and cuddled him for a minute, put him in his car seat and he went to sleep before we reached the car.  He pretty much slept the rest of the day, and didn't want to eat a whole lot.  We also had pictures taken that afternoon for Valentines day, and he wasn't upset but wouldn't smile either. 
We put him to bed like normal around 8 pm.  When he woke up around 3 am, he was boiling hot. I gave him some ibuprofen, fed him, and put him back to sleep. He woke up a few hours later and wasn't quite as hot, he didn't get another fever, but was very cranky all day.

It didn't help that he had also picked up a bad cough and congestion from me.  So Thursday, Friday, Saturday and today have been a lot of fun with him either sleeping or screaming.  It isn't like him and makes me very sad.

We are flying to OR on Thursday, I hope we are both feeling better.

Here is my little sickie, but he still looks cute!

Snuggling with Daddy is his favorite way to sleep.  He is a BIG cuddly baby and Daddy has the magic touch to put him to sleep. He also falls asleep a lot on his floor mat, bouncer, and swing.  Although his swing and Daddy are his favorite ways to fall asleep.
 He only wakes up about twice a night now to eat, unless he is sick of course and then he wakes up every 30 minutes.  We love our little boy and the joy he has added to our little family!
