2 month old shots - stink!

We love Dr. Amon....but we don't like shots!
My big girl waiting for her shots :o(

Today was our first appointment here in the U.S. at the Doctor.....I had no idea that today's visit would entail shots :o( Taz would attest to what a baby I am when it comes to shots! Peyton did pretty well for the shots themselves (well she settled down pretty quickly after her initial screaming), but this afternoon she must have felt like crap and cried, and cried, and cried....MUCH more than I have ever heard from her in the time since we have had her. It broke my heart not to be able to console her and just hold her and listen to her cry.

Her stats from today's visit -

The Princess now weighs in at 12 lbs and is 22 1/4 inches long!

Here is my little Princess (finally) sleeping after a whole lot of crying, yes on her tummy...Dr. Amon told us that we need more tummy time as our little head is showing some signs of flatness on one side :o( So I sat right beside her as she slept this afternoon, making sure that she was breathing :)

One tiny little leg with two yucky old shots! I opted (as Taz had suggested) to have her shots given at two separate times, so we go back in two weeks for the other shot (and oral *I think Polio?). Poor Princess P!

What a big & beautiful girl! I agree that shots stink and it sure is hard on us mommys. I hope that Peyton recovers soon.

Poor little thing :( Shots are no fun and they don't seem to get any easier. I'm glad she was able to sleep and hopefully she's feeling back to her happy little self today.

If I remember correctly (though it seems like it's been a million years when I see tiny little Peyton), pretty much every time they go to the doctor during that first year, unless it's for something out of the ordinary, they get shots. At least she's still too young to know what's coming. Thank God for that, believe me!

Sweet princess. Sleeping on her tummy won't hurt her. Shots stink!
