Smiles and Tears



Mae is the sweetest little baby. She is very talkative and loves to coo and smile. She isn't the least bit shy about it and I eat it up. She had her 8 week check today and shots. Needless to say, she wasn't too smiley afterward. I felt like I had betrayed her since she had no idea it was coming then...BAM! Three sticks in the thighs. Her face turned so red and her wide open mouth was purple. She recovered after some cuddling and took a nice nap. I think the screaming really wore her out.
She is in the 75th %tile for her weight and 95th for her height. It makes a nursing mother so proud to see their little one all chubby, happy, and thriving. It's like "Oh, this actually works!"

She is sooo cute. Yeah I have always felt that way about shots. Colby was exactly the same way. He was smiling at me and then out of no where he had this pain in his legs. It's heart wrenching! But necessary. She is such a doll I can't wait to meet her... What are you holiday plans??
