Just a little pin prick, there'll be no more aaaah, but you may feel a little sick

Yesterday Miss Olivia Nutley had her first set of immunizations. Sam and I took her took her to a medical clinic in Surrey amid the freezing cold temperatures outside. Once inside she was weighed and measured. We realized we hadn't seen her weight in a while and it was shocking to see that she has gained quite a bit since her last appointment. She is now 11 lbs. 8 oz. I hope she isn't mad that I'm posting her weight to the public. Oh well, she'll get over it.

After that, a nurse brought us into a room and explained all of the disease's that were covered in these three needles and any possible side effects.

Then Sam cried.

The nurse explained that she needed to tell us all of the information so that we were aware and could monitor her for any complications. I was handed the baby being inducted as the official "holder of the baby during shots". The nurse did all 3 in about 8 seconds. She cried and screamed a little (Livi not the nurse) but overall it wasn't too bad. After it was done I stood up and held her against my chest (once again Livi not the nurse). She settled down and we were all done.

After leaving the office we drove over to Nana Nutley's work and visited with the ladies of the FVREB. Then it was time for a lunch out and a return home.

Livi did well and we didn't see any signs of complications (KOW).
