Fast forward 17 months (Ayden turned 19 months today! What??) and we are all old pros. Each time we have taken him in, the shots have gotten easier and easier for everyone. I still can't say that I like it and Ayden still cries but only for 30 seconds or so but by the time we leave the office, it's like it never happened. Then he just gives the nurse the stink eye for the rest of the appointment. He rarely has any side effects from he vaccines and the fact that we are staggering them so he only gets one shot at a time also helps.
At this visit, Ayden got his last DTaP (at least until he's 4). He was 21.5 lbs and 31" tall. I didn't get our usual doctor's visit pictures, but I did catch Ayden on video hiding from the nurse:
Hiding is his new thing. Yesterday, he ran and "hid" from David when he got him but all of his giggles from anticipation gave his location away. Then a giggly game of chase ensued. It was hilarious but I digress...
After his appointment we went home for lunch and then to my parents' house for a swim.
This was the most comfortable he's been swimming and even tried out his float.
He is such a big boy. We love him so much!! David was bummed that he missed out on the swimming but we had a lot of fun all playing together at home after dinner.
How about you? Did seeing your babies get shots ever get easier?
