a rough day

today suki got her very first shot. originally, we were not going to immunize her, but after a lot of praying and some conversations with friends, relatives, and both of her godmothers, we decided the benefits outweighed the risks. this was the most difficult decision we have had to make as parents; i hope we made the right one. thankfully, she was able to avoid getting a few that are no longer a danger to her since we waited so long. we decided not to group the shots, but to spread them out as much as possible. suki was very brave and only cried a little. she was trying as hard as she could to hold it in since the nurse was there and she doesn't like to cry in front of people. she is doing very well now and is still her happy self, the nurse said she would be grumpy for a day but thankfully she was not. 

we tried to make the day fun for her, so we took her out to eat and found this book for her at the toy shop. busses make her very happy.


  1. if you don't mind me asking, which shots are you doing?

  2. MMR and DTaP are the ones our doctor recommended. she got the MMR yesterday and will get the DTaP sometime after it has been 30 days. i hope we made the right decision, so nervous.
