Brrrr.....Cold and Grey.....

I know most of you are laughing....but today it has been cold...lovely high of 46 degrees with a wind chill in the 30ths.....nothing like the temps that most of you are use to......but for here it is cold.....I suppose I am slowly getting use to wearing Tanks and Jeans all the time......I actually had to put on a jacket and a scarf today....I know POOR ME!

Lila appt.....Yes, Lila finally had her appt. It went really well. I got a really good feeling that the new Doctor is going to do great with my kids. (I will miss our old Doctor, she was really great too!) I do believe in first impressions for some situations and this is one of them. Even though her clinic is really busy she does take the time to get to know you and your child. It does help a little that she was selected as one of "Americas Top Pediatricians of 2007" who knows how they choose them and I am sure there are a ton of them but its still nice to know how good she is and how much she cares about the welfare and well being of her patients. She also spent her pediatric residency at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, one of the largest children's hospital in the United States. Yes, I did my research.....you gotta this day and age.....With that here are Lila's numbers she was 18lbs 10oz in the 35% for 10 month olds.....28 1/4 inches long in the 55% for 10 month olds....and of course her head was perfect in the 50%.....the doctor was surprised to know and hear that Lila can say more then a few sounds....I actually think it is pretty amazing too, considering the girls were not as talk-a-tive as Lila, who will mimic just about anything you say, from Lila, Daddy, Momma, DB....the best is when you are on a roll and she is repeating them and then all of a sudden I will say Kiara or Mikiah and Lila will look at me look at them (if they are in the room) and then say something else...I suppose those are a bit hard. Anyway, so the appointment went well, I like the new Dr and now I just need to get the twins in for an appointment too.....They were really bummed that they didn't have a check up today. Strange kids I have.....

After the appointment we were off to the gym, to finally get our membership cards and pictures taken....The girls and I got a tour (Dad was there too, but he has been there before).....it is a really nice place.....the twins went into the Kids Zone and of course stuck to each other like glue....But they said they will like going there while mommy and daddy work out....Although I am thinking that I will be going in the early AM most days and then picking 1-2 night a week and maybe 1 day on the weekends for us to go as a family.....I think one of the nights we will go as a family will be Tuesdays or Thursdays, ,they have a kids program about cooking, food and nutrition and they make a tasty snack....so cool.....

So that's about all we did today....finished the night with some grilled pork chops, rice and corn...and now I am having a glass of wine to toast this fine Thursday in Texas......

Glad Lila did so well at the Doctor. It is cool about the gym. I think going as a family is great. Do they do swimming lessons or maybe I should ask if they have a pool. Anyway, glad to hear you are starting to work out again.Not that taking care of three girls isn't a workout.. Ha Ha
