Some of them will depend on how soon I can find a job and what day care situation we go with.

Truth be told, if there's a way we can vaccinate the people around her rather than her, I'd go with that every time (like pertussis). We aren't exactly get out and do stuff kind of people, but she won't be staying with anyone else while we're out grocery shopping etc. I'd rather risk germs than the people in our lives.

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy
