It's been a busy weekend in our household!
Friday - Kendra had her 9 month well baby check up. She weighs 15 lbs, 13oz - exactly 12 pounds more than the day she was born! She is 26 1/2 inches long. Those stats put her squarely in the 5-10% range on the growth chart. Her head, however, is still 75-90%. :)
No shots this time, although she did have to have blood drawn for an iron test. It's completely routine, and we don't expect any problems since she still drinks formula a few times a day. It was interesting to see that Kendra has clued in to the fact that people in white coats don't bode well for her. As soon as the lab tech walked in, Kendra started screaming. Real tears and everything - she was really upset. When we left, a different lab tech walked up to say hi to her. Same reaction. He walked away, took off his coat and came back. She was all smiles then. Smart little girl we have :)
Saturday - The weather here is gorgeous, so after Gymboree class we worked in the yard. Kendra hung out in the sun tent I bought her off craigslist. Dan worked on building my garden, and I finished ripping the boards off our fence. (The framework is still standing - that's another weekend). We're both a little sore today, but it's another beautiful day here so we'll be back at it after church.
Hopefully Dan will finish walling off the garden and I can plant my seedlings. I started them a month ago in the house, and they are going to town. We'd also like to take some time today for fun - a bike ride around the area with Kendra in her new bike trailer (I love craigslist).
All the tulips we planted are also blooming!!
