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.
