Wyatt got shots today. I know you're probably thinking either why so late or so early? Well, I've been really behind on getting his vaccinations. When my Dad was sick I moved back home for awhile and just got behind on all of the vaccinations thing. But honestly, I didn't care. I have some opinions on vaccinations anyway... 

Either way, he's finally all caught up and will be right on time for his 12 month shots coming up in two months.

But that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to tell you about how WELL he's doing. The last time he got shots he got a fever, runny nose, and an insanely terrible attitude. This time around he of course screamed after getting them, and then strangely he went back to normal. I'm wondering if it had anything to do with the trip to the store after his appointment, or maybe the McDonald's hashbrown that he got to eat cruising Walmart? Oh, and I gave him Motrin before we even left for the doc's, so I think that helped too.

When we got home I put him on the floor to play and he immediately was his cheerful happy self. I just put him down for a nap and he seriously went OUT. This is the most amazing thing to me. I'm pretty sure they laced his shots with some sort of happy juice serum. And when can I get some of that?


  1. LOL at your last line. I hope he continues to be a happy Wyatt this afternoon. How's your foot?

  2. I have some opinions on shots too. That's why it took me so long to get Ruari's. I cried. Lame.

    I'm glad this time went well!

  3. Is it wrong to drug your kids...hmmm. Sleeping baby...tempting.

  4. henry reacted the exact sick way you describe, the last time he got shots :( i hope our next appointment goes as well as yours did!

  5. Awe...what a good baby. :)

    PS. I dig the new banner font.

  6. shots...hmmmmm....lots of opinions always...
    the motrin definitely helped.

    we took Lily to the doc today also for 9 month check up but no shots. instead, the took blood. from her finger. wow, she screamed a bit but was so good! i wanted to cry.

  7. I VOTED again today! and I'm so glad Wyatt took to the shots better this time! Love that pic of him ;o)

  8. i love that sleeping picture. he looks like a doll. i have issues with vaccines too thats why corbin is on the alternative schedule. mcdonalds hashbrowns always cheer me up. i think thats what did it.

  9. so, cute! i am glad shots went well.
    we do the alternative schedule too.

    giving tylenol before the visit is what we do, it helps so much!
