Giants, Visits, and Eats

This week was a full one in the life of Rhianwen Joy who is 4months and 3 weeks old! First was a new doctor who was very friendly and interactive with all of us and who labled our babe as very healthy! She weighed in at 16lbs 10oz - 97th percentile (giant), but also was very proportional in height at 25 and 3/4 in - 95th percentile. The shots left her zonked!

Mommy had to pull out a whole set of new clothes and couldn't resist trying all of the new hats on Rhianwen too.

"Tea anyone?"

Next was a visit from Grandma Nanny Kim and Grandpa who were the gift bearers (npi) of a treasured Valentine Koala bear from Great Grandma.

The introduction of rice cereal did not phase Rhianwen one bit although it seemed she was wondering what this mushy stuff in her mouth was.

By the second day, she was opening wide for more!

Daddy's Home!!

Daddy missed Valentine's Day because he had to go back to Pittsburgh for his company's annual meetings. (Who schedules out-of-town meetings for Valentine's Day?!?!)

Anyway, he drove his truck home Friday night and Mommy and I had Valentine's dinner ready when he got here. On Saturday, we went out shopping for a washer and dryer so we can finally wash my diapers again. (I've been wearing disposables for 2 weeks!)

Gone to Carolina

"What? I'm gonna be a GRITS??? What's that?"

"Preparing for departure... "

"Arrival on time and no lost luggage on the way. Whew! What a trip...temps in the negatives, an overnight stay in a hotel, riding with the kitty cat in the car, but here I am..."

"Hmmm, maybe I should have stayed in Pittsburgh; who is this guy anyway? Is he making fun of me?? "

It was one stressful move on the Pittsburgh end of things, but we are in NC. The truck is unloaded thanks to the help of Wally's parents and cousin and friends, and Christopher helped spend an afternoon taking things out of boxes although he refused to touch the crystal. Smart move on his part I suppose. He used to have a nasty habit of taking my stuff apart with the aggravating effect of it never working again. So far, we haven't found anything lying around in pieces. Rhianwen did wonderfully through it all. As long as she has her food, a place to sleep, some toys, and a little attention, she is one happy baby!

She can now stay in a sitting position for quite a few seconds. She puts most things in her mouth, is making lots of bubbles and tongue convolutions, and has perfected her baby language. We also discovered that she looooves the Windows Media Player moving displays. She was TRANSFIXED!

Oh, and the cat has aquired the habit of carrying the baby monitor away.
