I am amazed at how well you are doing today considering you received your 1st shots yesterday. We didn’t even have to give you Acetaminophen overnight and, so far today, you are doing great with just one dose of Acetaminophen this afternoon as you were obviously in pain with your little legs straight as rods and arching your back. You are just a little more subdued than usual (!), but I’ll take it! 😉 I am just finishing packing up our bags as we are embarking on another big 1st for you tomorrow. We are flying across the country, back to the east coast for a visit/introduction to family members. You’ll get to meet aunts and uncles, your grandfathers, your 2 great-grandmothers as well as many friends who are excited to meet you! I’m sure you’ll do just fine!
As for the title of this post, I’ve noticed something I do when I hold you and try to put you to sleep. As you suck away on your soother and I give you cuddles and kisses, I’ve caught myself constantly grooming you, removing little fluffs from your hair, cleaning your eye goop, etc… It made me thing of a couple of monkeys grooming one another. I guess I’m a monkey too! 🙂
P.S. When we went to the Health Unit yesterday, we saw Fiona (one of my co-workers from the NICU who is now working at the HU) and she said you’re starting to look like me! I was over the moon upon hearing this as EVERYONE (including me!) has said you look like you are the spitting image of your dad!
Sleep well my love, I need you on your best behaviour tomorrow!
