Shoes: Aldo, Skirt: F21, Belt: JCrew, Sweater: Target, Glasses: UO, Watch: Gift, Bracelet: c/o Vanessa Mooney
Before yesterday, I was convinced that the most horrible experience of my life was the night that I drove 17 hours straight through the mountains of Wyoming, overdosed on 5-Hour Energy and un-overdosed myself into a grocery bag on the side of the highway at 4am. Then yesterday happened. That dreaded shots appointment, where my baby - chubby, pink and cooing - lay naked on the padded exam bed, fiercely grabbing my hand while nurses, on the count of three, simultaneously stabbed two needles right into my heart. And he screamed until his lips turned blue.
Before he was born, if you had told me that I would cry at this appointment I would have said, "You crazy girl. I don't cry at anything. Ever. These tear ducts are dry old Scrooges. I laugh in the face of tiny baby legs and big needles." Just kidding. I would have believed you. And it turns out I'm just as wimpy as I always thought I was. As soon as the nurses were safely out of the room, Everett and I cry-babied it up together for a few minutes. And then we went home and praised the creator of infant Tylenol.

I love that skirt. Is it a new purchase?

Just wait. Wait till he's running and falls down on the sidewalk. Or trips at school. Or gets his feelings hurt. Your mom heart will always hurt with him. It's good though. It's beautiful. The way the Lord intended. Because, we, as moms, can make every bit of these things better. And that is a WONDERFUL feeling!

Great outfit! As always!

hannahstiff said...

I got my daughter's second round of shot yesterday and she hasn't cried at all at either appointment but she wailed all afternoon and woke up about 9 time yesterday... it's a sad process for sure. You, however, look lovely.

real budget, real busy, real body fashion:

First, that skirt is amazing. Second, I would have been shocked if you hadn't cried. Awful, AWFUL shots!

Kristi Hoskins said...

You will probably tear up a little at each and every one of those appointments! I still have to hold it in when my 6 year old gets shots!

Love the skirt and the glasses!

kiley wilkinson said...

I too, cried. (more than he did) now that he's older, he knows what's coming and its even worse. :-/ just another milestone in the life of a new mommy! Thank goodness they wont remember it!

Poor little thing! I'm sure its so hard to go through that! At least you look adorable - hey, there's always a bright side...right?

Charlotte said...

Don't worry, I would have cried too. poor baby :(

Diana said...

my pediatrician always told me to give my baby tylenol about 15-30 mins before the shots.. it makes them less painful. He said, "it is the kinder thing to do." I think it semi-worked because my daughter always took the shots pretty ok.. either that or she's got a high pain tolerance. I feel your pain mama... i think secretly those shots hurt us 'moms' more. : (

PS: you look great!

Kieren said...

Awe! I remember when my baby got the heel prick at the birth center when she was only hours old. I sobbed. I felt like my heart was being ripped out!!

CessOviedo said...

What a lovely color scheme! Perfect accessorizing!

dailydoily said...

Oh no :( Poor Everett + poor mommy! I love that outfit. I never think to wear a sweater buttoned up like that! Thanks for the idea ♥

Songbook said...

I know exactly what you mean when you said, "two needles right into my heart." Perfect way to put it. I hate those appointments too. Give that little guy an extra hug for me

The Cunninghams said...

Shots suck.

Sara said...

Those first shots are the worst. I'm a pediatric nurse and give shots everyday. One thing that I have found works is holding your baby chest to chest, tucking in their hands (very important), so they never see the nurse and they're immediately in the cuddle position. Their legs are looser in froggy-style because they can't kick so it goes faster. Get all the paperwork done and get packed up beforehand so you can just hold him afterwards. Good luck with the four month shots!

modern Suburbanites said...

you look gorgeous and i was the same way when i took my baby for his first shots. no worries. :)

Elise said...

aw! That sounds terrible! I think almost very mom on the face of the earth gets a little emotional during their baby's(ies) appointments!

Good job mom!

Beckie said...

I have to laugh at the doctor appointments to keep from crying uncrontrolably- I'm sure the nurses think I'm nutz!

Carrie said...

Funny story but not funny times. I'll be there one day, but right now I can only imagine *sad face*

this is your cutest outfit yet!

Anna said...

dang, i was hoping for a side shot of the shoes. :) Is that tri-color I see?
Sorry about the shots. AS a nurse, I would HOPE I could be tough at that appointment...but it's unlikely.

cecimadden.com said...

Oh I feel your pain! I somehow managed to miss the first several shot appointments. I finally took my daughter for her 12month shots and I really did almost cry right there in the room. It was super awkward because the nurse probably thought I would've been over it by then. Oy ve.

Emmett Katherine said...

Awww poor everett. I think every mom cries at their babies shot appointments. Not that I know first hand, just going off friends and family experiences!

I live that skirt. Colour, style, length, everything!!!

Adventures in Dressmaking said...

Ooh, super cute, love this outfit in particular! Great skirt!

Cute outfit. That's something I can put together in my own closet to wear to work. Thanks for the inspiration!

Nessa @{Casa Braaflat} said...

it is the worst feeling seeing your child poked with needles. and i'm sorry to say it doesn't get easier as they get older! darn huh?

sunnysideoflife said...

isn't it the most terrible, awful, excrutiating thing in the whole, wide, world? i hated it.
but you look splendid! i was in anthropologie yesterday and came THIS close to buying a skirt {on sale} that resembles the one you're wearing here. now i'm kicking myself for not buying it!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

after reading this post, i asked my mom, "was it the most horrible experience when we got shot as babies?" and her reply was something like, "yes, it's awful, the little baby doesn't even expect it and then they get stabbed and you want to die and then your whole day is ruined and you go home thinking the world is so cruel and i don't want to talk about it anymore".

Elle said...

Poor baby Everett! But I LOVE this outfit!!

Mrs. Baker said...

Love your outfit! I am so not looking forward to that appointment with my little man at the end of this month :(

Stephanie said...

Aw, that doctor appointment sounds really tough :( On a more positive note, just wanted to say that I really love how you rock that leopard print belt with pretty much everything! It's so neat that you're using an animal print as a neutral - very inspiring :)

astr!d said...

love that skirt!

and baby shots are horrible. the worst part is that they are usually happy slobbery things moments before the stick. then they look at you like, what is going on!!! it hurts my heart to remember! it will be ok!!!!!

Miss K said...

gorgeous girlie!

A FANCY DAY said...

I cry when I get shots haha. Hopefully husband will be able to take our baby to the doctor when that day comes.

Meagan Murtagh said...

poor mama! atleast ya looked good doing, i'm sure!

Kimberly Horne said...

I feel your pain! I went with my brother to his appointment and it was the hardest thing to watch, I got so mad at the nurse. I love that skirt! :)

Oh, and I NEED that skirt! yes, I neeeeeed it! x

I want that skirt!!

Shana said...

Sydney - I have been meaning to tell you (for quite some time) how much I'm enjoying your Momified posts. :) I have two little guys (4 and 1) and so many of your stories transport me back to those amazing/scary days as a new mom. So thank you for that.

And yes - I SOBBED when my little guy got his shots. Every time. And uh....still want to? I have gotten a little tougher...but not much. Last Thursday we were in for both little guys...4 shots for the oldest, 3 for the youngest and both of them wailing away, one on each knee. I'd be lying if I didn't admit that a few tears escaped. :)

ps. What the heck regarding comments on your Washingtonian post??? So easy to be a hater, I guess. Will leave a comment of support when I get a sec.

dxeechick said...

Pretty soon the baby will start recognizing the nurse and break out into tears before she even touches him with that blasted needle! :(

stephanie said...

Love that outfit, you look awesome!

Jessica said...

baby shots=worst.experience.EVER!!

Along Abbey Road said...

Yeah, I agree with Shana about the hater comments on the Washingtonian. I just put everyone in line too, don't you worry. We've got your back!

You look fabulous! And I am dreading the day when we have to get little Luke's shots. It just meant more cuddle time for you and the little one that day, right?

Camille said...

...brrrr.. my baby and I have a similar appointment with two needles this thursday! I'm scared now..
very cute story :)

Shannon Bezold said...

As I'm sure you can probably tell from the comments, you are not alone in crying at shot appointments!! I started crying as soon as the nurse walked in the room with the needles! My husband looked at me like I was a freak but when she actually gave the shots and Hunter started crying, hubby scooped him up so fast I barely had time to process the whole thing!! It gets better but it will always break your heart when he cries from pain.
P.s. I am totally in love with your blog! Im a stay at home momma and get stuck in the sweatpants and tshirt ruts but your blog has definitely helped pull me out of them :)

Andrea Grace said...

I hate watching my baby get shots! It's just the worst! Just remember its better than dealing with sick baby in long run!
www.Alwayssaygrace.com

Susanna N. said...

Totally understand this! I was the same way. When my daughter was only 7 days old and have to have her heel pricked, I walked out of there cursing that nurse!! One thing that really helped with shots is immediately nursing after they get the shot. It obviously calms them down and works for you too! My daughter's doctor's office was always really good about letting us sit there and nurse when they left for as long as we needed.

Stephanie said...

Girl, please. I think that is completely normal. If it makes you feel better, I cried when they trimmed my dog's nail too short and she whined when it started bleeding.

Yea, I'm that crazy dog-mom.

I've got no hope when it comes to my flesh and blood babies crying.

nzkiwigirl said...

What a lovely skirt!

Britney said...

Oh that skirt is so lovely and feminine. I must have one of these for summer time! And i'm with you on the shots girl--I was in BYU-Idaho's nursing program and had to give little newborns their hep B shots in the hospital and I was totally fine with it. But when those nurses come at my little guy with those things I can't help but get choked up. It's for the best tho!--at least that's what I tell myself :)

Michelle said...

Okay, so this has to be my favorite outfit I have seen on you Syd! The skirt is fabulous!!!!!! You Look Gawgeous!

JessicaLynn said...

Shots are the worst, I always cry with them. My doctors office always encouraged me to nurse the boys after their shots to calm them down. It always did the trick.

Brandi LeAnn said...

Poor baby. :( Such a sad day for everyone. We do tylenol 30 min before the appt and it makes a difference. Also, ask your pediatrician for some lidocaine to rub on his leg to help reduce the pain! :)

adventures of a spouse said...

adorable as usual, love the skirt! I just went through the same thing last week at my little one's two month checkup. As the doctor left the room he told me I would probably cry more than baby and that she would be fine, but somehow that didn't make it any better. :( Baby tylenol is the best!

Janell said...

Syd, I'm pretty sure most EVERY new mama finds herself having a sob-fest over the evil shots appointment. It is so funny that you posted this today because just yesterday my sister called me to tell me about my niece's shots appointment and the SAME thing happened to her. I can't believe how big Everett is getting. Also, LOVED your V-day looks! So fresh and just gaww-geous :)

Cate said...

My little guy didn't cry his first shot appointment...nope he left the big crying scene up to me! Now he is 19 months and just walking into the doctors office he crumbles to the ground and out come the biggest saddest alligator tears!! I like to give him Tylenol before and take a hot shower after.....now that he is little older a litter ice cream (for both of us) works magic!!

a girl with a smile said...

hoorah! She is wearing skirts again

theolivetree said...

oh that is the worst...just wait until they are a little older and they look at you for help...yikes.

p.s. you look fantastic!

Bon Bon said...

Definitely just experienced the baby-shot action this past week, for the 1st time. We're spacing them out, so little man only got one shot. He did great...until about 5 hours later. Then it hit him hard. So so so sad. Hooray hooray for baby pain relief! xoxo

Kendall said...

Okay, first let me tell you that you are not alone. I cried my eyes out- and if you know me, you'll know that I have what they call an "ugly cry" where it.. well.. it isn't pretty. My son had Jaundice when he was first born and it lasted 2 months after he was born, so we had to take him into the hospital to get his little heels pricked every week. They would poke his little heel and then squeeze blood out- I cried every time and it was terrible. The best thing you can do is just be there for your little E, which it sounds like you already are. You're a wonderful momma just keep being awesome!

When my son had his first baby shots I had to leavethe room, so there...

Elephants & Owls said...

I'm the same way with my DOG! I bawled my eyes out when we had to take him to the ER and hear him in the back yelping when they put thermometer in him ... And it tears me up to take him in for shots! Haha. But it's all in the best interest for your babe!

PS - Love the V-Day looks, I may have to go shopping for some of those pieces!

I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this, but if you give him Motrin or Tylenol about an hour before the appointment, it helps little one with the pain. The medicine is already in his system and he will sleep better afterwards.

Oh sweetie - my heart would be breaking for him too!!

Thanks for the tips!
