Presidents Day

     We hope that everyone, who were lucky enough to have one, enjoyed their three day weekend!  We certainly did, and Monday, we did some SHOPPING... yay!!!  No, not any for Gwen, let's be honest, her closet is still ready to explode!  This trip was for Mommy and Daddy... and it was way over due.  It was nice to spend the day out and about as a little family, with no plan or scheduled things to do.  Well, that's a bit of a fib, we did have Gwen's doctor appointment in the afternoon, but we were definitely done by then.

     After our excursion, we showed up at Dr. A's office, where we were greeted with packed-to-the-brim waiting rooms.  I mean there were more people than I have ever seen in there... maybe bc all of the kids were off from school???  Anyway, our appointment was for 2:45pm, we got there about 5-10 minutes early, and plopped ourselves in the only 2 available seats in the "Well Room" (thank goodness bc I think Jason would have freaked if we had to sit in the "Sick Room" lol).  We have become pretty accustomed to waiting when we see Dr. A, but we had a feeling that this was going to be long one.  At about 3:15pm, we realized that our prediction was probably right, bc the woman sitting next to us told us that her appointment was for 2:00pm... ahhhh!  So we waited, and waited, and waited, and at 4:15pm we were called in to the exam room.  Grr. 

     So, Gwen is now 26 1/2 inches long and 17 lbs 6 oz.  Dr. A said that everything is perfect and that in the next few weeks we can start giving her foods (even though we were going to start anyway)... he said Oranges (Carrots, Squash, Sweet Potatoes), then Greens, then Meats, then Fruits.... all in due time.  But, how exciting!!!  We go back in another month... maybe we should show up a day early!

Hope you had a fun and relaxing holiday weekend!


P.S.  Did I mention that I am soooo over snow and cold?  26 days and counting...
