- We had Sophie's one year doctor's appointment yesterday. She has now officially fallen off of the chart. She is 16 lbs 13 oz and 27 3/4 inches. I had to go back and read my 9 month post and all of the super supportive comments so I don't fall into a funk about it. After the appointment I immediately went to the grocery store to buy all of the things the doctor recommended we try feeding her as we begin Operation Fatten Baby. We fed her a smoothie/oatmeal concoction that has about twice the calories she is used to eating in one setting and she acted like I do when confronted with a pile of french fries, which is to say, she chowed down. We have to go back for a follow up appointment in a month to reevaluate her weight. If she's not gaining a little more rapidly, then the doctor wants to run tests to make sure it's not a thyroid problem or some other ominous sounding issue.
- I filled up my gas tank yesterday and it cost less than $50. I felt like I won the lottery. I also had to check my owner's manual because I filled up 17.8 gallons. I have never gone over 17 gallons before and I was just sure the gas station was padding the numbers. Turns out I have an 18 gallon tank, I've just never let it get that low. Who knew. Conspiracy theory much?
- My husband, who made fun of me when I started the whole facebook thing, has now become an addict himself. He asked me how many "friends" I had yesterday (he already knew the answer), just so that he could gloat because he had two more than me. If anyone wants to be my friend so I can beat him, let me know.
- I have a miserable cold. Head hurt. Throat hurt. Body hurt. Things are so bad that Neil had to sleep in the guest room last night because I was coughing so much. That's a lie, I was snoring. Like a freight train, evidently. I was coughing, too, but I guess that wasn't what was preventing his sleep. He said he left because he didn't want to keep waking me up to get me to stop snoring but I have a sneaking suspicion it was just as much about him not being woken up. I missed him.
