6 month shots

6 months? Already? sigh...

So Charlie got his shots yesterday. At 2 months I was able to hold his arms and not cry..at least not in front of anyone. At 4 months I was able to hold his arms and look away. Yesterday I let daddy hold his arms and I stood in a corner not watching what was happening.

Does this get easier?

My poor little man. He had such a rough night last night so I gave in and gave him some Tylenol. The only times I've ever given him medicine was last night and once after his 4 month shots. It must have helped because aside from a diaper change and feeding at 6am, he didn't wake up until a half hour ago, almost noon.

But he woke up smiling and kicking and very happy. He's been in his jumper since I changed him and brought him out here. lol it's true what they say. They get over it way faster than mama's do.

        Nina's last set of shots were pretty bad. She's a very stubborn, unreasonable little girl who's stronger than she should be. She had to get 3 shots and the nurse hit a bad spot on the last shot so it bled a bit and hurt extra. I felt so bad! I had to help hold her down, but as soon as that last band-aid was on I scooped her right back up and proceeded to rain down mommy love lol

          Nina doesn't usually ever actually cry. She only has tears if she gets hurt, otherwise it's kind of just a shout or something. But with those 1 year old shots, she was bawling and sniffling, tears everywhere. Granted, the nurse did hit that vein and had to replace the band-aid twice but man...all those tears and the red face, plus that cry. She got mommy-love all day long.

            The first set of shots I think I took it harder than he did...but after that...the kid screams more when they weigh and measure him and I was like...ok I know this hurts but clearly it's not as bad as getting weighed and measured? Lol so now it not a big deal to me. Once I pick him up and hug him he's perfectly fine. So we come home and have a warm bath and have some tylenol. He has definitely gotten better at it and I don't cry anymore either. Lol

            Tristen screams bloody murder as soon as his clothes are off. The last few sets of shots I've had to take him by myself so I just kinda go into an ok lets do this mode. The last few times he had shots they let him sit in my lap while I wrapped my arms around him and held him, almost like I was hugging him and that makes it a lot easier for us both.
