Little Missy got her typhoid shot. Ever since she got her first shot when she was a newborn, she didn't really cry. But the last 2 shots that she got, she's been crying like a real baby. I guess it's the age where they remember and acknowledge the pain now. She actually told me that we don't need to go to the doctor because she's not feeling hurt or pain anywhere in her body and that she doesn't have a booboo.
I'm just glad we still found a workaround. She cries because of the pain but she doesn't seem to know it's the injection yet. She connected the pain to the bandaid. So right after the shot, she removes the bandaid (and sticks it to me), says there's no more booboo and stops crying. Right after that we take her to the balloon wheels (mini ferris wheel) and rides some kiddie rides then she forgets everything that happened.
I'm so happy she started being like this only now, when she's almost 2 and a half years old. We've finished with almost all her shots (just 2 more for pneumococcal and meningococcal) then we're all done. We'll be coming back for booster shots when she's 4 already! Yay!!
Here are some pics of her on the rides.
This was taken a few weeks back but you get the idea what the balloon wheel looks like.
Did you have a fun-filled Saturday too? Hope you will be having an even great Sunday!
