Poppy had her first round of shots today. I had a knot in my stomache all day thinking about it. I imagined she’d be scared and maybe even feel a little betrayed. She did cry a little (I nearly did, too, when the first needle went in and the “ouch” registered on her sweet little face), but I scooped her up and hugged her when they finished, and now she’s her normal cheerful self.

I had a flu shot yesterday, and it’s a little sore. I’d imagine she won’t be quite so contented tomorrow. We did give her a little bit of baby Tylenol, though, so maybe that will head off the soreness.

edited at 10:19pm to add … The baby Tylenol is helping, but once it starts to wear off, she very obviously doesn’t feel well.
