a rite of passage for 12-month old babies (in our household at least) - the MMR jab!
brought emma to the clinic yesterday for this, as well as 2 other vaccines due at this age in Australia (the Hib and Meningococcal C). poor bub - 3 shots at one time! left arm, right arm and left thigh...
but she's definitely a toughie - only cried when the actual injection was taking place. stopped the minute i started hugging and patting her :)
now i'm just keeping my fingers crossed she doesnt experience any of the side effects. we've got a flight to catch this fri and i want her to be well for that. some of you may be asking why we didnt delay the shot till after our hols? well, i'd rather be safe than sorry - especially if you remember what we went thro' with ethan at 18-mths when i was just ONE WEEK late at getting his chicken pox jab! :O
and guess what? emma's put on 1kg in the last month and now weighs in at 9.11kg :D
