Suffering through Shots

Danielle went to her six month doctor appointment today. She weighed in at 13.3 pounds and fell from the seventh to fourth percentile. As the doctor put it we have a shrinking baby. We might have to change her name to tiny here soon. She earned herself an extra weight check before her first birthday.

The worst part of today was the shots. Danielle always smiles and laughs. Her cries sound more like moaning. Today we realized she can really cry. She won’t use her legs because they are sore, she doesn’t want to eat baby food, she can only go to sleep being rocked, and she whimpers in her sleep. I feel so bad for her. I really hope she wakes up feeling better in the morning. For now, I am getting lots of baby snuggles.
