Shots

Yesterday as I was happily bringing Ina in for her two month check-up, the nurse kindly asked,

"Are you ready for her shots?"

Gulp.

How did I forget about those?  It is probably better that I did, or else I wouldn't have had any sleep the night before.  After Ina's pediatrician told me that Ina was a "perfect baby" and I should consider myself very lucky to have a baby with her disposition (Ina was giving the doctor her best coos and smiles), Ina had to bare her legs. 

First, she had to have her blood drawn to make sure her previous anemia was under control (which it is!).  Then she had to get three shots.  THREE.  I almost died.

I am a pharmacist, so I know vaccines are important.  I have had many shots, that didn't hurt all that much.  So, why, when her first shot was given and she started screaming, did I also start crying?  I almost took the nurse out and grabbed Ina to make a run for it before they could torture her with two more of those nasty things.  Instead, I just tried to hide my tears and gave Ina her binky.  

Ugh.  So glad that is over.  Any volunteers for next time?

Ina left the appointment rocking four preeetttyy cool band-aides.

Breakfast was a bowl of cereal as I rushed out the door to the doctor's office.

Lunch - I am willing Summer to get here, so I made my favorite Summer salad - cottage cheese, tomato, green pepper, red onion, and a little light mayo.

Dinner was tuna noodle casserole following *this recipe*  I love casseroles because I can prep them during Ina's nap and then stick them in the fridge until it is time to put them in the oven for dinner.

Dan had a class for work last night, so Abby, Ina, and I watched The Biggest Loser and took fun pictures.
