I’m so ready for the Fall season to kick in already…Is it terrible to say I’m so over Summer this year. Something about those cozy Autumn days and nights I feel like I’m really craving. I think I’m also going to try to bake a little more this season, I absolutely adore acorn squash and think I’ll try to make some soon. The house smells so delicious and I love when there is something baking in the oven. I’m also thinking that it would make really good baby food for Angelina who seems to have taken a step back in eating solids.

Today she had the second part of her 2 part flu vaccine and now she’s taking a little nap. You can’t help but second guess yourself when the doctor asks you if you want to give your baby a flu shot. For some reason the word SHOT has this bad stigma to it. Now, with this whole autism epidemic you ask yourself, do the risks out way the benefits? Should I be partaking in somewhat “elective” shots for my child? Where do you draw the line to what is recommended vs what is necessary…I guess you never can truly predict the outcome of any given scenario. It sort of feels like when you play the goalie in soccer. You never get credit for when the team wins and you protect the goal but then if you let a shot through and the team loses it’s all your fault. I guess it sounds so cliche but the best thing to do is just to follow your instinct. We have a pediatrician that came highly recommended from a friend of ours, and as I always say when the doctor is asking if I’d like something or not, ” What do you recommend?” Because at the end of the day, even though I am a concerned parent, I’m not a medical expert. This is why we have doctors so we can go to them for their opinions and recommendations. Unfortunately, we can’t do everything on our own, we can’t be experts in every single aspect of our lives, and when it comes to our kiddos, the stakes are higher than ever. With a combination of being informed, interested, hiring a professional with direct experience and trusting my gut, I hope we can navigate the seasons ahead with as little bumps in the road as possible. 

What do you think of trusting the doctor’s suggestions? Shots? Hope you have a wonderful day!!
