/ The RE's Muse: A peek at the new girl on the block

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

A peek at the new girl on the block

Forgot to post this a few weeks back...she's kinda cute, no? And note the creative use of my placenta as a headrest. Glad to see she's made herself comfy in there.

As for the 'first' girl on the block, she had her 18-month appt. yesterday. Call her a late bloomer but after months of being in the 25th to 50th percentiles, she's sprouted into the 75th percentile for height (mind you, me and the mister aren't the tallest of people), 70th for weight. Per the ped, she has another molar breaking through her gums (top and the lowers are close to coming through), and a strong vocabulary of 25+ words. Ped was very happy at that and at J's two word 'sentences' ("off shoes" and "up please"). Overall, she got a clean bill of health. She also got a flu shot and a hep A shot and sent on her merry way. Barring any unforeseen illnesses (knock wood), we don't go back for 6 months. Something tells me I may need the break as there may soon be another small person that I take to a slew of ped visits on a regular basis (knocking more wood on that one).

Dee, she is beautiful!! I can't believe what an amazing picture that is! Oh, I am so jealous. I don't think they even do those anywhere around here. As for Miss J -- such a big girl now, and a smart cookie, too. You go, girl!

And what a tall little sprout that Miss J! Big girl!

Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!

Oh Dee she is amazing! How utterly beautiful!

As for Ms. Beautiful #1, sounds like you had a great well-visit. Like you say, you're probably going to need the break as you'll have your hands full over the next few months... :-)!
