Our Lil Guy Can Take It Like a Man - The First Time

We took Ruben this afternoon to have some lab work done. We prepared him for the needle prodding that was going to take place and we were afraid of how he would react to being stuck by a needle to draw blood. Well, the nurse inserted the needle and he did not even flinch. The nurse got two viles of blood and he was taking it in stride.

They were so impressed by him. They said he did better than some adults. Me included. Well, second time around they didn't hit the vein right and he cried that time. What do you expect? He's only 2 and 1/2. :-)

YAY for Ruben!!!

I'm so glad that it went better than we've expected!!! I still hate that he had to have it done, but I'm very glad it's over!!!

I take Jared tomorrow to get his 4 yr shot, and I'm pretty sure it's not going to go as well as you described here. :)
