Flu Shot #2

Today Oliver had his flu shot. We waited in the steamy waiting room for an hour and then in the room for 30 minutes. Luckily, our pediatrician recently had the patient rooms painted! This is the first appointment that Oliver has been completely mobile without any assistance. He explored the entire room corner to corner! I cringed every time he made an 'uh-oh' and fell on the floor. Luckily one of the toys that I had to entertain him was a bottle of Purell! We love to be clean and have fun at the same time.

We forgot how fun that paper noise is! We shredded it to pieces!

Larry and I received our flu shots last Sunday. We both agreed that it was the most uncomfortable flu shot we have had in some time. I was sympathizing with Oliver, specifically this time because I just had mine. I held his hands and a nurse held his little feet. A second nurse distracted him (while he just laid still starring at her) and gave him the injection (happy term we use at work for the S word....shot.) She gave him the S........ , pulled the syringe out and then he made the smallest egh sound that that was it. He took it like a man! Daddy would be proud!!
