Well Babies

Today William and Caroline had their Well Baby visits. Both kids are doing well and growing. Caroline was really nervous about getting a shot. Last year, she didn't really do too well. It went a little better this year. She didn't scream and kick, she just cried really loud and hard. I felt so bad for her. She asked me last night what we would be doing today and I told her that her and Will had a doctor appointment and we would be going to that, she immediately asked if she would have to get a shot. I told her that she would have to have one and tried to talk her through it, I didn't want to lie to her. Ended up she had to have 2 shots so I asked if she could get them at the same time. So that is what they did, two nurses, one on each arm and me holding her. It was fast and after she was just fine. So she got some gummy bears for being braver than she was last year. Here she is showing off her band-aid and gummy bears.

Yep, Lukas always asks about a shot when we go to the doctor...whether it's for him or Natalie or Konrad. He only gets shots once a year, and he still remembers it. He will pinch me and say, "that's just like getting a hurts a little and then goes away. But getting "a blood draw" is even worse in his book.
