Dr. Dr. - Give Me the News

I know you are all concerned about the health and well-being of my children...so I will update you.

Lauren had her 4 month check-up today and comes in at a whopping 90th percentile for height, 85th percentile for head size (big headed kids=big brains=$$$ jobs=someone to pay for my retirement condo in an oceanfront community where Dr. Hottie is on staff and weekly pedicures are offered) and 47th percentile for weight (13 pounds!!!) Which is surprising since I call her legs drumsticks they are so cute and chubby. Graham came along with my mom and was SO cute to come back to her patient room mid-visit to "see if Lauren was doing ok and does she need me?" Love that little sweet boy.

Her "I'm Sorry Mommy Made You Get Shots" outfit.
Gymboree is a very bad place if you have a girl!

Four shots and a comforting trip to Nordstrom later....I finally bought her some swimsuits (1/2 off Children's Place, love that) and got some shorts for Greg. We stopped by Williams-Sonoma to buy an overpriced can opener that is so deluxe I had to ask the saleswoman how to use it, to which she replied "I don't remember, let me read those instructions again." Yeah...from that sentence knew Dan would love it so it came home with me.

All in all she did well, Graham was a-may-zing (no, really and I do know how amazing is spelled too) and I somehow am now on Gymboree's mailing and call list. I told the lady if she calls my house and my husband answers the phone to pretend it's the Ob/Gyn's office instead.

Had a great movie night tonight with some book club friends where the stupid DVD died 15 minutes to the end. Grrr...I was pretty pro-NetFlix prior to that experience.

What a big girl!! I hate those shots appointments. I know it's for the best, but I want to cry every time we go.

She is precious by the way. I love that giant smile!!

Kate was 13 lbs at her two month!!! Maybe Kate will loan Lauren some of her hand-me-downs, haha.

Cute. Cute. Cute.
Lauren is the cutest thing ever. I love that you guys go out shopping after big moments (like shots) already. The yellow sweater is adorable.

That sucks about the DVD, especially since you were in the middle of a special night with your girlfriends. I'm sure it was fun regardless. Girl nights are the best.

I am going to pick up the movie at the library today so when I finish the last part I'll bring it around to anyone who wants it.

Hi, Your little girl is so cute and what a great big brother graham is. I agree with you gymboree is a very dangerous place.

LOVE the outfit! (Lauren will look adorable in the yellow!) I hate the whole shots thing, but it sounds like you know how to comfort Lauren (I mean, yourself!)

Sorry about the DVD. It could've been the DVD players fault. What are the odds?

She is one of the cutest baby's I ever did see! Hope she does well with her shots tonight. Mine always got a little cranky. Susie H

Sounds like she is doing great...I really should be writing down my kids stats like that, I am so forgetful and will not remember them.

I love the outfit, she definetly needed that, the shots are such a bugger. You know I never go in Gymboree because I am not too keen on their boy clothes selection, they are a little too wild for me, but I need to check it out now that I have a sweet little girl to dress.

I missed the book club night out, I heard about the movie, what a bummer. Alright this novel is done now, talk to you later!

Melinda said...

Thanks for inviting me to book club! That was fun! I want to get that salad recipe from you. It was so yummy. When I got home, John cheated and downloaded the movie online so that I could see the end. That's one of the pros of having a computer geek husband.
