Better today

For those of you who read the blog on a daily basis, and are wondering if Kara is having a better day today...she is! She slept from 9:30pm to 3:30 am last night--the longest stretch yet. Tim seems to have all the luck. Whenever it's his turn to do the first feeding of the night, Kara always sleeps longer! It was Kathy's turn when Kara woke up at 5:20 am this morning--more gassy than hungry. Poor girl! When Kathy was changing Kara's diaper and getting her dressed for the day, Kara was back to her happy, normal self. She was talking and wiggling up a storm!

For those of you without children, or those who have older children (like me) who have forgotten what the vaccination schedule is like....Kara has to get the same 4 shots she received yesterday at her 4 month appointment (Nov 13th). Then there are a few more shots at 6 months, 12 months, and 18 months. There a even a couple more shots between 2-6 yrs of age! After a child starts 1st grade, the vaccination schedule is usually completely done. Is it any wonder that children fear going to the doctor when they're little?! At least when they're older, they know it's the nurse or the doctor giving them the shot--not mommy or daddy. My worst fear yesterday was that Kara thought I was the one inflicting the pain upon her, because I was up by her head trying to comfort her, and she was looking at me not the nurse. :-(
