Hit me with your best shot

You know how they say that a baby's shots are more traumatic for the mother than the baby? I'm not entirely sure I believe that. S's wails this morning tell me that she found the vaccination experience pretty darn traumatic. The fact that she instantaneously started screaming when poked with the needle made it clear that the shots actually hurt...not like when a two-year-old cries a minute after falling (you know, when they realize that you think they are hurt, meaning they can work the sympathy system). Luckily, her daddy was there and was able to calm her down. She's basically been snoozing ever since. Poor traumatized baby. Sleep it off, girl.

The other news from her check-up? She is officially a gigantic baby. 14pounds, 5-1/2 ounces (99th percentile) and 23 inches (75th percentile). She's huge. She's also waking up.

didn't you say you were a monster baby, too? i think k's percentages were flipped of s's. 75% weight and 99% height. thought that was funny. btw, k has a special smile for s and even blushes a little. smitten. he knows a cutie even if only via pictures. i always hated shot appointments. traumatic for everyone. k is due for his 5 yr old school shots this summer. cringe.

Sophie screamed so loud for her five year shots, I'm pretty certain that everyone in the entire medical complex heard her. Some things just don't change.....
