All Is Well

First Daughter had her 18 month well child visit today. She hates the doctor's office, of course, and kept asking to leave before they even called us back. By the end she seemed to realize the doctor wasn't really hurting her when she listened to her heart and looked in her ears...and that's when she got the shots. Poor girl! She's well and healthy, though, so we're happy.

The stats:
24 pounds, 1 ounce (just under 50% for her age)
33.5" (just under 95% for her age)

First Daughter seems to be getting better about going to sleep once she's in her crib. We still have to stand by her side and occasionally rub her back, but we're pretty happy when she goes to sleep after we put her down.

Kansas Dad and I watched a movie together tonight. We don't do that very often. (He's usually working at night and we tend toward TV on DVD from Netflix which require less time at once.) It was nice. Kansas Dad even got to feel baby move again. (The first time was while we were in Boston.) Baby's getting stronger. We could watch the belly for kicks!


  1. Oh my goodness! Do you guys like Stargate? I never would have guessed. I bought Chad that movie for his birthday (last weekend)- we're both big fans. (He got me hooked on sci-fi.)
    We haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but are looking forward to it.

  2. We do love Stargate! I started from the beginning with Netflix and Josh got hooked. It's just so fun and much less "moralizing" than Star Trek (which I do also like). I hope you enjoy the movie!

    Have you watched Firefly? It's excellent! Though I think it got cancelled halfway through the first season.

  3. No, I haven't seen any of Firefly. Chad said he's only seen a couple of episodes. We don't have Netflix, although we probably will at some point.
    We still watch Stargate Atlantis when we can, though since the other series ended, it hasn't been as engaging for some reason.
    I must say we also got very hooked on Terminator - The Sarah Conner Chronicles that just finished its first season not long ago. I'll admit I've never seen any of the Terminator movies all the way through, but I liked this series a lot.

  4. The new Terminator series looked interesting to me, but I haven't seen any of it. I can't watch live TV mostly because I always forget the times the shows I like are on, but also because I've become very impatient with commercials now that I've experienced TV on DVD.

    When you have the chance, you should check out Firefly. It's worth it. I also love Battlestar Gallactica.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
