12 Month Well Baby Check

I took Lenna to see the doctor today for her 12 month well baby check.  She got FIVE shots!  Yuck!  She also got her finger pricked for a hemoglobin/lead test.  Besides some minor crying, she survived both events.  She had a minor ear infection that we need to treat once again.  Dr. Sunberg says she is quite the 'go-getter'.

Here are her stats:
Height:  29 3/4 inches long (75th %-tile)
Weight:  20 lbs 8 oz (40th %-tile)
Head Circumference:  46.5 cm (87th %-tile)

The next checkup will be her 15 month visit some time in April.   She should only need to have 3 more shots and be done with infant immunizations.  Hooray!

We can't believe she is a year already.  Here are some pictures from Lenna playing before we went to daycare this morning mixed in with few from last January-a little trip down memory lane:

Happy Birthday baby James

It would have been baby James' our guardian angel's 2 year birthday today.  Just a little shout out to keep his memory alive.  We wish we could be celebrating Lenna & James' birthday's together today.

Mommy & Daddy have a website too~

We created a website for our wedding and would like to share with our blog readers:

Quick update:
Lenna is feeling better this week and has her normal appetite and chipper attitude back.  Mom and Dad are feeling better too.  Lenna is so curious and into everything.  This evening she was helping us do trim work.  Lenna helped shop vac up some dirt behing the washing machine as Daddy put trim up back there.  Then she pushed the shop vac all the way into dining room where it was sitting for me.  Our little girl turns one on Tuesday.  We are excited and a little nervous that she is growing so fast.  Next Saturday, January 15th, we are having a Winter ONEderland Party for Lenna's first birthday. 

Tony is doing a wonderful job getting our trim up in the house (oh I and I am busy putting putty in nail holes).  We are getting sooo close!

Happy New Year

Well, it hasn't been the most pleasant start to a new year for Lenna, Tony and myself.  Last Wednesday I got a call from our daycare provider that Lenna was sick.  It was the first time I had to leave work early because our baby was sick, so it was good that we have had such a healthy baby so far.  Anyhow, she had some type of stomach flu (and I won't go into details).  She gave the stomach flu to me which gave it to Tony. So we have sat around in the house most of the weekend.

Lenna is feeling a little better today (although not herself), but now, those darn teeth are out to get her.  I think she has 4-6 teeth coming in.  Poor gal.  So, her happy, chipper mood quickly diminishes at times and she you can tell those teeth are bugging our little gal.

Lets hope by starting out 2011 by being sick, we avoid it the rest of the year!
Happy 1 minute and playful
Sad the next - those darn teeth, this picture was taken in the same minute as the previous pic!
