One Tough Cookie
Today was Staley's 4 month doctor's visit--also known as Vaccinations: Part 2. And our little girl (well, not so little in the 73rd percentile for height and the 61st percentile for weight) proved that she is one tough cookie. After charming the nurse with her smiles and grabbing her doctor's stethoscope while he examined her, it was that dreaded time again. But three large vaccination needles weren't enough to bring our little girl down. She didn't cry until after the second shot and was done crying about 10 seconds after the third shot. She was calming down even before we picked her up off the exam table, and she even gave the nurse (the inflicter of the pain) a smile before the nurse left the room. Every day I can add a new adjective to describe the perfection that is Staley--adorable, fun, happy, inquisitive, social...and today I'm adding a new one. Staley is TOUGH!
