this kid is awesome.
Oskar had his 6 month check-up today and it (of course) included some shots. I was dreading it, like every parent does, and ready to swoop in and comfort him the moment it was over.
Well, when he got stuck he did the whole "I'm-so-upset-I'm-not-breathing-for-a-few-moments-while-I-muster-up-a-giant-scream" (parents, I know you know what I'm talking about) and then let it all out in one giant outburst. Rob immediately picked him up and he stopped crying and started smiling at the nurse, and me, and anyone who would look at him.
While we waited to see if he had any allergic reactions to the immunizations he fell asleep in my arms. And that was that.
He's been super happy all day; you'd never guess he'd had those dreaded shots.
And that is why I love this third baby of mine. He makes things easy for me.
Well, most of the time. He does have his moments.
