I don't play with things yet, but I like to
look. I spend time every day on my play mat, where someone
invariably shakes a rattle at me.
I'm also having longer and more
frequent, earnest conversations of "ah-goo."
|Mom and Papa also insist on "tummy
time," but I don't enjoy it very much. Although I'm getting
better and better at lifting my head while I'm on my stomach, it's still hard
Seattle has had really nice weather this spring, so Mom
and Papa have been taking me for lots of walks in my stroller [right].
|However, I sleep more while strolling than I
actually enjoy the view.
|A big event in March was the visit of my Oma
and Tante Lianne from the Netherlands. They arrived March 19th and stayed
for a week. We all went shopping together, and we even attended a rijsttafel
dinner hosted by the Dutch-American Chamber of Commerce. But mostly they
held me a lot, which I really liked [left], and spoke lots of Dutch
Two-Month Doctor Visit
I visited my pediatrician at the end of March for my
two-month check-up, and we found out that in two months I grew A
LOT. When I was born, my length was at the 75th percentile; now it's
at the 90th (23 3/4"). And my weight was at the 25th percentile; now it's at
the 75th (11 lbs, 9 oz)! This would explain my ample cheeks and chins
[right]. I guess Mom has been feeding me really well.
This doctor visit I also received my first in a long
series of inoculations. I suffered four shots, two in each thigh.
(Good thing I have a lot of fat there.) That was NO FUN, but
fortunately I didn't experience any ill effects later.
