Louise is three!!

Louise enjoyed her third birthday. She received some wonderful presents from friends and grandparents. Louise was sometimes blunt in her assessment of a few of the gifts, but "me no like it" changed in every instance to "mine!" or "me like it!" either overnight or once her sisters showed an interest. The fun continues tomorrow: she's having a joint birthday party at day care with her good friend Katie.

Yesterday, Louise had her three year old "well child checkup" with Dr Greene. She is no longer a giant. She weighed 36.8 lbs (75th percentile), was 38.5 inches tall (75th percentile), and had a BMI of 17.4 (85th percentile - yes, we're not sure how that works either). She was very brave during her vaccination and finger stick, and she was very proud to show Mummy her battle trophies (band-aids/plasters).

Claire has learned how to wave, but she waves towards herself! (It's perhaps too soon to take her to a child psychiatrist). Charlotte has a double ear infection; we're hoping the antibiotics help her to feel better soon.
