Wednesday, 15 May 2013: Forty-Four Days Old.
Ayla had her first lot of immunisations today; two needles (one in each leg) and an oral gel.
Hubby took a couple of hours off work so he could come with me and I’m so glad he did.
The injections weren’t too bad, Ayla cried the most heart-wrenching cry I’ve ever heard, but it was over quickly and it only took her about two minutes to forget the whole thing.
It was comforting to have Hubby by my side, we are a team after all, and being the first of many significant moments in Ayla’s life (well, it was a big deal for me!) I know we’ll be in it together every time.
Even after he got home for the day and Ayla’s temperature had kicked in, he’s been right there beside me soothing her and telling her she’s so brave.
It’s going to be a long night, for both of us.
