Shot Through The Heart.

Guess what I learned today?

That taking your child to their 2 month well check visit at the doctor’s office is the worst thing ever!

(For me.)

My poor baby had to get shots — lots and lots of shots.  Seriously, I have never known pain like that.

Yes — me.

What?  Did you think this was about Tom’s feelings?

I put my little baby on the big huge doctor’s table and I was allowed to stay with him near his head while he was getting his shots because the nurse said I could try to keep him calm.  What?!  I need to be calmed down!  I’m a total mess here!  I’ve been spending the past two months doing everything I could to keep him from crying.  And bleeding.  And now here they are torturing my little man!

Tom cried.  But I cried harder.

And then they allowed me to pick him up and cuddle him and I was still crying.  But Tom was not.

And then we got in the car and I was still crying.  Tom was looking at me like I was insane.  So I stopped.  Don’t want my baby thinking I’m weak!

Thank goodness that’s over.

The doctor also said Tom is in the 90th percentile for weight and height right now.  I need to find a big and tall store for babies.
