Tessa got 3 shots yesterday and boy did we hear about them last night / this morning! She was not at all happy, extremely uncomfortable, and running a temp of 103. Clark finally got her to fall asleep by lounging in the recliner with her for a looonnnggg time. Reminded us of the nights we’d spend up with Celia, trying to get her to sleep. But Tessa should be doing better today and tonight as long as we keep the tylenol or ibuprofen going. Poor thing–she has such a pathetic cry. I’ll have to remember to schedule nothing the day after her next round of shots! Celia never had any kind of reaction to shots, and she got a lot of them her first year or so. I’m sure everyone is a bit tired of hearing how different our girls are, but to us it’s fascinating and a great reminder of how God has made each of us as individuals, with great specific plans for our lives.
Today (it’s now Saturday) Tessa showed us the sign for more, one that Celia also picked up right away. Tessa was asking for more food, of course!
I added a few new pictures to the Flickr album, for anyone interested.
