Learning From Experience

The great thing about having a kid is that you start to feel progressively more competent as time passes. I'm sure that that feeling will slowly start to erode once Ada can talk, but for the time being, it's nice to not feel totally overwhelmed all the time. Today we had Ada's 4 month vaccinations and it made me think about how horrified we were by her reaction to them last time. This time we were prepared with the tylenol and the plans for a quiet day at home afterwards. I also had the pacifier at the ready, rather than having to scramble for it as she shrieked.

Here she is at home afterwards, sleeping beautifully, and getting some much needed tummy time as well.

Of course, it could be that it's a million times easier this time because she's not throwing up every 5 minutes... hmmm.
