Real Tears.

Filed under: Uncategorized — by lhoham @ 3:55 pm

Nathan had his two month shots today. He took it like a big boy, but I didn’t. His cry was so sad. I nursed him immediately after which helped and then he appeared drunk after that. But, when he woke up from his nap, he was in so much pain. It. Was. Awful. The worst part (aside from his horribly sad “I’m in pain” cry was that he cried real tears for the first time ever. I had to wipe away his sad little tears. It broke my heart. 😦

I gave him tylenol like the doctor said I could and he fell asleep in my arms. I let him sleep for a little bit in my arms then put him down and he has been sleeping for almost 2 1/2 hours. I think the combination of the vaccines and tylenol made him very sleepy. But, he isn’t in as much pain so that’s good. The silver lining is that I’ve gotten a bunch of stuff done around the house. I hate that he’s not feeling well though. My poor little baby boy.

On a good note, two days ago, he giggled! He smiled at me when I was talking or making a face at him and then he giggled. It was super cute! He was very smiley this morning when I put him in bed with us for a few minutes to hang out. The four of us snuggled (dog included) and it was great. Nathan loved it. He also was rolling around a lot the other day. And he pulled himself up off of his bouncer the other day, too. We sure are going to have our hands full… 🙂


  1. Awww..the shots are the worst. My girls just had their 1 year ones yesterday and I hate the “I’m in pain cry” so much and seeing the alligator tears coming out. I cried big tears on their first shots. I had no idea what to expect and I just couldn’t handle my girls hurting like that. I cried while Addison cried while I was trying to nurse Riley and then Jesse started crying. It was a big mess in the doctor’s office.

    I hope the he wakes up refreshed and like his old self again. Yay for getting things done though.

  2. The vaccinations are awful for the parents…the crying is heart-wrenching, and Micah was always sleepy and needy for the day afterwards. It will pass, and as he gets older, it gets easier.
