March 27, 2011

We've had a great couple of weeks and weekends since the last post!

Charlotte got her first pony tail. It didn't stay in long, but it sure was adorable.

Patrick and I both had the Friday after St. Patrick's Day off of work, and with 40-50 degree weather we acted like it was summer! We found the pictured bike trailer at Capital Deals in St. Paul. We got the trailer and a bike helmet for Charlotte at less than half the cost of a new trailer (I love a good deal!). While Patrick ran I biked and pulled Charlotte along. It was fun to do something together as a family, and Charlotte did great for her first trip out! Hopefully we'll take lots of trips this summer.

Last weekend was a big race weekend. Patrick ran the Lake Johanna 4 miler on Saturday and the Human Race 8k on Sunday. He did great, and I only wish the weather had been better. Charlotte was snuggled in tight, but it was rainy and cold. She didn't quite get to see Grandpa Russell finish because she got too cold and we had to go home early. Maybe next time!

Today was very relaxing. Pat's parents came over to watch Charlotte, so we could go out for dinner to celebrate his upcoming birthday. It was pretty awesome to be able to enjoy a meal at a real restaurant and not have to worry about keeping Charlotte entertained and happy. We even took in a movie, Paul, and enjoyed it very much. Charlotte had a great time too playing with Grandma and Grandpa.

Charlotte received her last Synagis shot for the season and was evaluated by Minnesota's birth to three program. We're very happy with the results. She was average on all scales for her corrected age and not too far behind for actual age. She's a bit behind (12 months) for gross motor skills but way ahead (21 months) for fine motor skills. A surgeon perhaps? Concert pianist? No pressure, baby girl. :)

Her weight has been fluctuating. Last weekend she weighed 20 lbs 2 oz but then today she was back down to 19 lbs 13 oz. Her vomiting has decreased in frequency but increased in volume. She now vomits about 2-3 times/day, but it's unbelievable sometimes how much comes out of her little body. We have calls into her GI Doctor hoping for some guidance. She was on vacation last week, so hopefully we'll connect with her early this week. Luckily the ear infection seems to be gone. Charlotte's sleeping a bit better, and that's great for all of us!

Hard to believe April is just around the corner! April showers bring May flowers. Please.

It was great to see you both this weekend! It's hard to believe sometimes that she once was so little... Angie took a really cute picture of Charlotte this weekend - I'll be sure to post it when I get back on fb :)

Wish Pat a Happy Birthday from us!!!

Love, Marissa & Adam
