Our Baby Girl's Growing Up

 Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker

Weighing In...

Maggie is in the 50th percentile for height (22 1/2 inches), the 75th percentile for head circumference, and the 90th percentile for weight at 12lbs 10oz.  Today was Maggie's 2 month check-up, where I think the shots hurt me more than they hurt her.  Jared was the brave one who stood by her, while I coward in the corner with tears in my eyes.  Doc says she's a perfectly healthy little lady.

If only Maggie's weight gain could coincide with mommy's weight loss.  Yesterday morning KC was showered in thunder storms so I decided to break out the Wii Fit.  First Wii reminded me it'd been 280 plus days since I last turned her on...so I decided to delete and start over. Then it told me I was overweight. How rude! I yelled back, "hellooo...I just had a baby 8 weeks ago!"  But it didn't care and proceeded to remind me to workout every morning. We have a love-hate relationship now. Luckily the sky cleared in the afternoon to reveal a gorgeous fall day.  Maggie, Truxton, and I took a long walk through the neighborhood and was pleasantly showered in falling leaves of gold, auburn, and burnt orange. Have I mentioned yet how much I love this time of year?

We're going to Weston's pumpkin patches and apple orchards this weekend, so hopefully we'll get some good photos to share. 

In other family news...
  • My sister, Sondra, and niece, Sadie, were in town over the weekend, where Sondra ran the KC Marathon in 3hr 34mins and qualified for Boston
  • We're praying for my Uncle Steve who fell off a 20ft ladder on to his head and had to undergo major surgery on his back and spine. We're all praying for him to heal and gain feeling in his legs.
  • We're looking forward to a visit from Grandma Linda soon! We miss her.

  1. I'm glad Maggie (and you) survived the 2 month check up! Weezy's is today, anxious to see how big she is, but dreading the shots!
