There's good news and bad news. The good news is that we squirted a tube of teething gel into Amelie's mouth last night, and she slept like a baby. Well, a baby who's not teething and is off her head on Bonjela. The bad news is she had her second round of vaccinations this afternoon.

It's surprising what a difference a couple of injections can make. I took a photo of her at lunchtime, twenty minutes before she left for the surgery, with her smiles lighting up the room so effectively that I didn't even need a flash. By the time I got home from work, Little Miss Sunshine had turned into the Princess of Darkness...

She's well and truly needled.

And it also seems to have swollen her head. I don't suppose it would be appropriate to suggest sticking a pin it in to release the pressure?

Only in Slovakia.  
I can just smell a good nights sleep.

Oi, Lisa, I told you that anecdote about Slovakian nursing practices in strictest confidence. And anyway, I'm sure they don't kneel on babies and stick needles into their heads any more. They're all too busy freezing to death with no gas. :+:

Save some bonjela for me, won't you. I'm quite partial to the stuff.

I wish to repeat what I said yesterday.

You're really not impressed, are you Dave?!

I'm reserving judgement until she's 18.

She'll still be too young for you, Dave.

And Amelie's dressed as if she was part of the cast of "Cell Block H" (otherwise known as "Prisoner"). Perhaps that's what turned her into the princess of darkness. 
But she's lovely really!

The person who takes these photos is like a war correspondent - too busy filming to do anything to help!

If you think she looks like a 'Cell Block H' cast member now, brace yourself for the dungarees.   
And when is Ozzy Osbourne coming to take her away?

Poor little thing! I blame the local butcher she went to for her jabs who probably injects elephants at the zoo in her spare time!

Has she stopped crying yet?

I don't know - I'm wearing earplugs.
