How did Anika check out? Her ears, lungs, throat were all perfect. It is just her first cold. But Nathan and I feel better knowing that this weekend and will not be worrying if Anika has an ear infection. And the nurse and PA both said they gave Anika full permission to still attend our neighbor’s son’s wedding tonight which both of them will be there also. The nurse said “I’ll babysit so you can dance!” Ha, very funny…they assume that we would actually be able to stay out late enough for the dance to begin! Sleep is more important to us than dancing at this stage of our life. Actually I think the dancing stage of my life disappeared with my 20’s. I digress. Back to Anika.
Anika weighed 12 lbs. 15 oz. and was 24 1/2″ in length. At 3 months, she weighs just over a pound more than she did exactly one month ago today at her 2 month check up and was a 1/2″ longer. However measuring her length was a toss up because she was to busy kicking to actually get her legs totally straightened out to measure.
Both girls spent the day at with their Nana (Gma Carol) today. I trade with Carol…the kids for the dog during my work days from home. No it is not an even trade. Most days Anika is with Gma Carol and E is at her home daycare. But on certain occasions (those fruit basket upset daycare days) both girls get to be with Nana.
You might remember Charlie the dog child has a joint custody situation, as he is Nathan’s dog living with Nathan’s parents. Charlie comes with me now and stays at our house during my work days from home. He is
very limited on his area he can roam in the house but loves getting to run in the fields by our house a few times each day. And we have a huge new dog bed for him. Hunter asked “Mom has Charlie been on this bed yet?” With my back turned, I replied “Not yet.” Hunter had been holding Anika for me and said “Oh good!”.
All three agreed it would be a suitable resting place for the dog child.
Oh how I love these beautiful children!!! My favorite photo is the one where they are “sleeping” on the pillow. SOOO CUTE!!!
That Annika is an absolute cherub. I can not get over what a cute baby she is!!
