Henry got his second round of standard immunizations yesterday... necessary, but it sucks to have to stand by while your child gets injected not once, not twice... but four times with a needle in the fleshy part of his beautiful fat little thighs. I don't know if it was from being sore from the shots or not, but Henry was up through the night fussing. He has a mobile above his crib that he absolutely adores- he loves to lay in his crib and "talk" to the animals as they dip and spin by. Sometimes if he's in the crib and the mobile isn't turned on (it also plays bits of standard symphony favorites- albeit rather tinny and generic sounding) he will yell at the animals, as if to say: "how dare you just dangle there, move now." Sometimes he really gets going with this yelling. This is part of what was happening between the hours of 1:30 and 4:30 last night. Except if I turn it on during the night, he won't be able to fall back asleep on his own without the mobile on... just another one of those dilemmas that will work itself out.... eventually.
