One Month Old

Baby Girl had her one month well child checkup last week as well. She is growing very well. She weighed in at 10 pounds 6.5 ounces and 22.5" long. That's 90th percentile for height!  I think she is going to be tall!  She has acid reflux, so the doc prescribed her Zantac. We have seen improvement already, though she still spits up a LOT!  But the doctor said the medicine would not help with spitting up, just help her feel better. She also has thrush, so we are taking medicine for that!  I've never had these things with any of the other kids.  It is all new!  I also asked about the mark other neck. It is a birthmark, called a stork bite. She also has ones on her eyelids called angel kisses. Those will fade, though, she told me. The stork bite won't, but will be covered with her hair.
She is such a sweet little girl. She has smiled at us a few times and it is just so precious!  We are so blessed!

Bike pro and snowman!

Last week we had several sunny days and we took full advantage of them!  Goofy took off on his bicycle!  No more training wheels (or stabilizers, for my English friends)!  He learned in two days and is doing amazing!

The weather was so nice!  We had upper 60's and low 70's a couple days!  The funny thing was that we still had snow on the ground at first!  So Goofy and I made a snowman!  I was in a short sleeved t-shirt! It was so warm, but my hands were freezing in the snow. Of course, by the second day, the snowman had melted. But it was fun while it lasted.  (The sun was shining so brightly, Goofy asked if he could close his eyes for the picture.  I agreed, knowing they would be closed anyway.  I love his big "goofy" smile with eyes closed.  Just precious to me!)

More Birthdays

We celebrated Minnie's birthday, along with her cousin's, on Saturday.  It's always good to get together with family.

Three Weeks Old

It's hard to believe my baby girl is already three weeks old.  Why is it that the last three weeks of pregnancy drag on so slowly, but once the baby is here, the weeks seem to fly by?!  I got a couple pictures of her little hands and feet.  She will grow so fast, I wanted to capture them.

Last weekend I went out with my sister-in-law and a couple friends for pedicures.  My sister-in-law put it together in celebration of her birthday.  It was a much needed treat for all of us!  Three of us have had babies in the past couple months and one is pregnant.  It was so nice to sit, relax in the massage chair, chat with friends, and end up with pretty toenails when it was all done!  Thanks to PC for watching ALL the kids! He took them to the park and Baby Girl slept the whole time. The weather was gorgeous that day too.  It was a nice day for everyone!
