Kessa had her 2-month checkup today. I'll post her stats later. (No, she's not quite 2 months yet. But she's almost 8 weeks.) As part of her check-up, she got her vaccinations. He told me a list of possible side-effects and how to help them. Nothing he mentioned have come to light. Instead, she is screaming like a banshee. High pitched shrieking. She'll be sound asleep and shriek in her sleep. It sounds like she's in dire pain or something. Luckily, Aunt Jessa chose today to come down and help, so she's been holding her. She's also found that if she puts her hand on her ear, it often calms her down, though we're not sure if that was coincidental, because shhh-ing also has helped her calm down. I'm sure this has something to do with the vaccinations. She's never cried like this before. I suppose the timing could be coincidental. But it's the only thing I've got to blame it on. I can't blame it on being tired or hungry, cuz she screamed in her sleep just after nursing. [sigh]
Screams like this break Mommy's heart.
