Immunizations

Avery had her first round of shots today. She was a trooper. It was four shots and one oral vaccine. A little crying that quickly went away when I picked her up. She weighed 9 pounds 8 ounces which is the 25th percentile, and she was 21 inches long which is also the 25th percentile. He said that that statistic did not account for her being early, so she is right on schedule. She must be one smart cookie, though, because her head circumference was in the 90th percentile! The pictures below are from today. As you can see by the bright yellow and blue room, the first one is taken in our pediatrician's office. This is BEFORE the shots:


This is AFTER the shots. She has started rubbing her eyes with her fist, and that is what she is doing in this picture. Notice the little bandaids on her thigh...two shots on each thigh.
