This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You

Thursday Harris went to our doctor's office to get his first vaccinations. Most of his 'firsts' so far have been very cool, this one was shaping up to be not so much. It was a day we were not looking forward to - three needles in the meaty part of his thigh plus the lingering effects of eight vaccines. In the end the boy came through like a champ. The needles hurt but he didn't go ballistic the way we thought he would; there was crying though.

I'm not an emotional guy, but I have to admit it was heartbreaking to watch. I think Patty shed more tears than Harris did.
