Well Visit = Shots

I hate shots. I hate it.
I don't them for myself, much less to have to watch him getting upset. And now there is a big shift in options on if you should or should not have your child immunized or vaccinated. Some people think you would be crazy not to because of the dangers of the illnesses. While others think you would be crazy to give your children these shots that may have preservatives and other harmful toxins. My husband and I have been torn. It's been very hard to know who and what to listen to...
But today was only one shot and a well visit.
He is 36" tall (off the chart)
And just under 30lbs (93%)
at 20 months old (which is about the size of a 3 yr old)
He's doing great and very healthy overall.
Praise the Lord!

We played in the rain for a minute!

“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

I used to hate shot days too. I always sing when to them while they are getting shots or pray over them. Seems to calm them a bit.
Cute picture. We love playing in the rain.
