yesterday i decided to change the norm a little, but i know some of you (1 of you?) out there care about the goings on of the past week.
our dr.’s visit was last thursday and she is a complete porker! when i said she weighs more than The Mr.’s bowling ball, i wasn’t joking. my friend laughed and said she weighs as much as a t’giving turkey!! yes. she’s over the 14lb hump. ummmmmmm i asked the dr if i need to change anything & she is not in the least big concerned that she gained about 3lbs in one month!!! (but she doesn’t have to hold her all day!)
during this visit, she got some of her vaccinations. i was really worried she’d have some side effects. especially w/ the rotovirus vaccine; but it doesn’t appear that she did. we go again next month to finish the round. hope those will go well, too. the shot (just one) didn’t appear to faze her; but then she was crying at that point anyway. i didn’t enjoy it too much, but it wasn’t as bad for me as people would say.
on saturday, we got 1/2 of the visitors that were planned. unfortunately, aunt jo-jo & michaela weren’t able to make it. we were all pretty disappointed. but yay- g’ma & g’pa came!!! they hadn’t seen her in WEEKS. we dressed her all pretty for their arrival.
when they came in, she was finishing eating & was very happy. we watched her smile & talk for a little while. of course, that’s very new to them, so they were thrilled!
then, g’ma & g’pa insisted The Mr. & i go to dinner to celebrate our 6th anniversary. so we did. and it was very nice. we went to a shmancy place that luckily was being paid for by The Mr.’s work. (ain’t that great??) i don’t think jovie minded 1/2 glass of wine. i know i didn’t.
hmmmm, she’s quite aware still. & gives us more smiles & laughs. we came home from the groc store & g’ma & g’pa watched her. we thought we’d come in to some screams, but she was enthralled with the little toy g’pa had dangling while she was in his lap.
she has consistently found her hand to put in her mouth. the right one, specifically. she hasn’t “found them” yet in the way of knowing they belong to her /watching them and all that, but i guess this is a start.
yesterday she was quite interested in the song “5 little monkeys”. she stopped eating to watch me sing it. got lotsa smiles from that.
hopefully there will be more discoveries & activities to report next week. thanks for stoppin’ by.
and before you barrage the comments section demanding some pix, here’s 2 g’ma took for us!
