In which we stick the baby with needles

Poor thing got all her immunizations yesterday, and for the first time cried so hard that just being picked up by mommy and cuddled couldn’t make it all better. (I think – despite having sworn I wasn’t going to be one of Those Parents – I cried even more than she did.)

Then we got to pump her full of Infant’s Tylenol for the next 24 hours. She seemed to really like it after the first dropperful, swallowing it right down with a sort of confused, happy expression. Then she sank into a blissful, drug-induced slumber for 7 hours straight.

Maybe getting her addicted to ice cream isn’t all I have to worry about.
