about a dream: tuesday....

Wednesday, October 21, 2009


wow i'm really on a roll here! my fingers are getting tired!

tuesday was perhaps our busiest day of all. nina had her 4 year checkup at 9 am, so we had to be out of the house at 8:30 (we dropped mom's car off to be inspected on the way). she's a picture of health, of course! the best news is that she is 37 lbs (65th %ile) and 42.5 inches (91st %ile), which puts her BMI at the 35th %ile! YAY! she's almost never over 10th %ile in BMI, and now she's 35th! i couldn't believe it, i had to test out their scale myself, but it's right! this has to be the grandma effect.

nina was her usual adorable self. the dr asked her a bunch of questions, including asking about her eating habits. when he asked if she drank much milk she said "no, i'm not really much of a milk kind of kid." he laughed!

she got the H1N1 vaccine, it was the nasal spray and she didn't mind it at all.

straight from there, we went to a la leche meeting at nina's friend nora's house. nora also has a sister maggie's age, so it's a perfect match (nora also has 3 older brothers, this is the family we went apple picking with a few weeks back). la leche was a lot of fun with a lot of kids running wild.

after that it was home, a quick nap for maggie, and off again to dance class.

finally, we played outside for a few hours, because the weather has been so wonderful!
