Yesterday was a sad day for us.  Annelise went for her 2-month doctor's visit and had to get 5 shots!  I knew it was going to be sad, but I didn't realize how hard it would be for me.  Two nurses held her down to give her the shots simultaneously and Matt stood by her head, calming her.  Mommy hovered in the corner, fighting tears and praying her "silent screaming" would stop and she would begin breathing again.  As soon as they were done, they said "Ok, someone hold her."  That's all I needed to hear.  I scooped her up and cuddled her for most of the night.  One good outcome was that she slept 10 hours last night!  So, we all got some rest after the big ordeal.

By the way...she's now 10 pounds exactly and 23 inches long.  Tall and skinny like her aunts!

Yesterday was hard for me similarly. Evan had his circuimcision and 2 shots. It took all I had in me not to run down the hall where they were doing it. I could hear his screaming. It felt wonderful to have him in my arms again.
She's getting so big, 10 pounds! I'm still so excited that Evan has Annelise and Wyatt to play with when family gets together. Hopefully soon they can all meet.
