We went for Lil's 9 months checkup and she's a grand total of 18 pounds and 6 ounces and she's still a shortie... less than 10th percentile but it's OK! She had a grand time shredding the paper on Dr. Simmon's examination table. She then had to go for her finger stick and blood test. I was totally prepared for wails and tears but she was content to watch the lady and to play with her bracelet with nary a tear shed. OK needless to say, she did not get this from her Mommy, I get woozy at the first sight of a needle! Ususally Noah is game for accompanying us on our errands but couldn't bear the thought of seeing "Sis" get her blood drawn so he opted to stay with Nana. He's growing up so fast... I can't believe I"ll have a five year old in a few months.
Noah Thomas has also been in "casting" lessons with Papa. I'm ashamed to report that he is much better at casting a fishing pole than I am. He also then attempted to help me out and instructed me to "just take your time Mama..."
