Three year well check

Weight -- 33 lbs (75%)
Height -- 38 1/4 (50-75%)
(thought I am dubious about these numbers since I think she was slouching on the height measurement, and Caroline was recorded as 75% at her three-year-well-check at 37 lbs.)

She got one poke -- for Hep A -- since she's going to MDO. No tears (though she did tell me it hurt and whined a bit after the nurse left the room.)

She slipped in the shower this morning and scraped her foot pretty badly. That has bothered her all day. We also showed him the molloscum contagiousum we've been battling for a year now, and he thought it didn't look too bad. We're to just keep doing what we've been doing while we wait for her immune system to attack it.


When Elizabeth heard me say Caroline can only have soft foods right now, she asked, "Why can't she have loud foods?"

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

Posted by PicasaWe had Elizabeth's Super Why birthday party Saturday, the 7th. She invited three friends (but one was sick) and had her cousins and sister there, too, along with Uncle Tony, Aunt Mary, and Poppy. We decorated castles and cottages, had a super letter hunt outside, played on Elizabeth's new glider swing, ate cake and ice cream. Just had some fun on a spring-like day.

Posted by PicasaWe're just calling this a color mat since it's not a true rainbow (upside down colors), but I saw it in the Dollar Spot at Target and thought it'd be fun for different activities. This morning, we used it for color matching. Elizabeth gathered characters from the nativity set (and the dino flashlight) and matched them to their color on the mat. Later, I saw her do it on her own with some stacking pegs she was playing with.

Happy Epiphany!

Christmas Fun

Posted by PicasaOur tradition is to have as much family fun as we can the first days of Christmas before school and work are back in full swing.  We enjoyed a trip to Six Flags, a trip to the Austin Children's Museum's new Dinosaur: Land of Fire and Ice exhibit, and a trip to the zoo. We also had library trips and play time with the neighbors and a full day at home in pjs.
