Stella is officially 1 month old today! Her birthday was unfortunately commemorated by her one month shot:( in which she cried and so did Mommy. It was heartbreaking - I knew it would not hurt her that badly, about as bad as a shot hurts adults, but it was just so paralyzing hearing her cry and KNOWING what was making her cry and not being able to do anything to stop it. Within 3 minutes of getting the shot she had stopped crying and fell asleep so that was comforting:) Here is a picture of her battle scar - thanks for Bugs Bunny band aids!
This was the easy shot compared to her next few vaccines. They instructed us to bring infant Tylenol to her 2 month appointment because she'll be getting 2 shots which may give her a fever - I've heard these shots are very difficult from baby and Mommy - difficult for baby because it HURTS and you feel pretty rotten afterwards - difficult for Mommy because you are helpless to do anything to avoid the pain...and you know its coming!! I do NOT look forward to this visit!
We are spending her 1 month birthday at home but are looking forward to our weekend in Natchez and at the lake celebrating the 4th with friends and family. We can't wait to see everyone!!! If you'll be at the lake this weekend, feel free to pop over to Mary's Quite Time aka the Foggo-Eidt/Shull/Rinehart/etc... lake house! Lots of love!!!!
