MMR-tastic

Two weeks ago we woke up early to get out of the door by 8:30 (that's a push for us) to get Myrna to the doctor. We had another immunization scheduled, but little Myrna thwarted that plan by waking up with a fever. We were pretty sure she got that fever on purpose, just to avoid a needle. She spent that weekend sleeping a bit more, eating a bit less and very warm - but other than that she still was full of energy. Little did she know that she couldn't put off the inevitable, so yesterday we took a second stab at it. She was so excited about our morning adventure (she must have seen us setting alarms) that she woke up at 4:45 and was rearing to go. At the doctor's office, she immediately started in on the toys and slide. All was well until she saw the needle come into the room and she knew something was up. Thankfully it was all done in just one go, and we celebrated by going to the park and playing in the wading pool.

Here she is showing off her band-aid (something she likes to remind us that she has).
More photos are in her new August Picasa Album.
