Today we took the baby for a round of vaccines.  He got two shots and one orally.  I make Giuseppe hold him during the shots and then I take him immediately after to comfort and nurse him.

Today I witnessed the most amazing act of baby toughness. As the nurse was administering the shots, Paolo DIDN’T CRY.  He scrunched up his little face and whimpered.  And then, nothing. He snuggled me a little bit, nursed for about twenty seconds and then smiled.  And that was it. Incredible.

I know I sound like I think I am the first woman to have a baby, ever, in the history of the world.  But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t not feel that way.

  1. Aww, what a sweet sweet boy. I just HATE shot days. 😦 Poor little babies. When he gets older, just give him a sucker. That’s been my trick since I stopped nursing. Haha.

    Paolo somiglia allo zio Marco, anche lui non piangeva quando aveva la vaccinazione…sarà un bambino molto forte e con un buon self-control…
