And we shall call her "Weed"

We are back to our normal routine this week. For those of you that know how particular we can be, you know that we like our routines. We like living with a schedule even if we don't follow it to the letter - it just seems to make life a little easier.

Emily met with the nutritionist this week. So she was weighed and measured. After the appointment, Mike came back to tell me how it went. His exact words were "We are going to have to change her middle name from Rose to Weed!".

Emily now weighs 22 pounds 2 ounces. That is about 1/2 pound more than last month (she is still in the 50th percentile for weight). She also grew ANOTHER inch this month! She is now 31 1/2 inches long. That moves her from 75th to the 90th percentile for height.

When we were in Rhode Island, just about everyone said "I cannot believe how big she is". I was starting to think that we had the most giant child that ever lived! Just one more reason to change that middle name...
