A 'first' but no celebration this time

A baby's first year is usually a very overwhelming and thrilling one for his or her parents. How else should it be if had so many firsts in it: the first smile, the first roll over, the first word, first tooth, first step...and the list goes on.

And why shouldn't it be overwhelming? After all each one of these firsts is undoubtedly a milestone, something you look forward to and celebrate once it is hit.

Our two-month old son will be getting the third shot in the list of his vaccines to be had in the first year of birth. His doctor says this injection just might give him a fever -- his first fever -- if he gets it. Now that's one `first' we are not looking forward to at all. :-(
