Zoey's 6 Month Check Up

Zoey had her 6 month shots on Monday. It is so hard for me to see her in pain. The decision to have her vaccinated was not an easy one for me. I went back and forth for a long time and did a lot of research. I wrote up a whole blog about it, but decided not to post it. I just want to say that we decided it was the best decision for our family, and I now accept that. I want to protect my baby the best way I can, and this was something I felt was going to protect her.

I do want to say the biggest influence in my decision was I asked every single mom I knew, and they all vaccinated their children. The adverse reactions are very rare and the benefits outweigh the risks, for us.

That is all I want to say on the topic, but please feel free to share your decisions and why. 

She had a little fever that night and next day so Tylenol helped. I let her sleep with me all night last night, even though she has been sleeping in her bassinet for weeks. Hopefully we can do the transition to crib soon. I feel like it will be harder for me to have her so far than it will be for her.

Zoey weighs 17.02 Pounds (50th percentile) and she is 25.5 inches long (30th percentile). Growing big and strong! Mommy's milk is making baby very healthy and she now also eats sweet potatos, green beans, squash, zuccini, and we tried banana but she did not like it just yet. I am trying to teach her how to drink from a nuk cup with bite spout but so far she just chews on it. =)
