Rainy Weather

The weather has been quite rainy lately, which is never good for a little girl who loves to be outside.  Today there was some bad weather in Minneapolis, but thankfully it missed us.  Thoughts go out to those affected.  We had a break in the weather this evening and went outside to feed the horses.  I got some cute pictures of Lenna chasing the dandelions, kitty, and Sargie boy.

Since it was so rainy yesterday we decided to take Lenna to the Mall of America to see the Sea Life exhibit. We forgot our camera so we had to buy the tourist photo.  Lenna LOVED seeing all the fishies.  It was a great age to bring her.  She also enjoyed Lego Land as well.
Lenna's personality shines now most of the time.  Yesterday morning I said to Lenna "Let's get dressed and get your diaper changed."  She proceeded to run from me as she always does.  This time she ran and hid in Sarge's dog kennel.  Another example is yesterday while Lenna was at the mall she was throwing her snacks out of the stroller.  I gave her the "don't mess with Mom" look.  She then gave the same look back to me.  Nice huh?  Oh and just as I was typing this she figured out how to take her diaper off!

Grandma Sue got Lenna a spring rocking horse.  She loves it but gets frustrated because she can't get up by herself.  She is getting better and better at her attempts every day though

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Peterson

I know this is Lenna's blog, but she is in the video quite a bit because she was a large part of our big day. Here is a link to our wedding slideshow for those interested. Courtesy of Precise Images by Tabitha. It is 14 minutes long so make sure you have plenty of time to watch.

Mother's Day!

Lenna made Mommy a cute little craft item for Mother's day at daycare on Friday.  Then this morning while Mommy was in her bedroom getting ready for the day, little Lenna snuck in and gave me a card!  It was very cute, Daddy helped her fill it out.  Then while Mommy went on the computer Lenna took the envelope for my card.  She shredded it to pieces, then threw it in the garbage.  What a big helper.

We hope all of our blog reader's, if it applies had a wonderful Mother's Day as well.

15 Month Well Baby Check

Lenna went to see Dr. Sunberg on Friday to get her well baby, err should I say toddler check.  She was a good girl for her checkup.  Mommy expressed concerns about Lenna being 'pigeon toed' and that she trips over her feet.  Dr. says that Lenna is 'intoed', but there is nothing to be concerned about.  All of her joints are lining up correctly and her hips are fine.  Dr. did say a large amount of fast runners are intoed so we better look out.  Well, maybe it runs in the family for Lenna to be a runner like her Grandpa Pete, Aunt Shannon, Aunt Denise and Uncle Greg?  Maybe, but all I know is that Mommy needs to start training now so she will be able to keep up with this girl!

Here are her stats:
Height: 31 1/2 inches long (76th %-tile)
Weight: 21 lbs 13 oz (28th %-tile)
Head Circumference: 47 cm (76th %-tile)
