Playing Marbles

At birth, a baby's stomach is the size of a shooter marble. Well, mine sure isn't anymore as I was 14 lb 4 oz at my 2 month well visit last week. That's a 59% increase in weight over my birth weight. I've also grown over 3 inches!

Mom and Dad have been giving me this horrible tasting medicine. I hate it! My pediatrician scheduled me for something called an "upper GI" for this Friday to help find out if I really need the medicine. I don't know what an upper GI is, but I don't have a good feeling about it!

I got to met another sweet relative this weekend. Aunt Katie from Pittsburgh flew down to meet me. She enjoyed holding me, especially during our hot summer evenings in the rocking chair on the screened in porch. That's where I like to go to listen to the crickets during fussy evening time. Mom and Dad also play cricket or rain noise for me at night.

We did all kinds of fun stuff with Aunt Katie like going to our area children's museums, including one called Marbles. I am working on learning all kinds of new stuff so I can impress Aunt Katie next time she comes.

Alden isn't a doctor, but he plays one at Marbles.

Dr. Alden gives a vaccine, just like he saw Trent get.

Dr. Alden needs some help learning how to check his patient's heart.

Aunt Katie helped Trent at bath time.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.


Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.


Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
