The Busy Giffs: String bean & DIY

String bean & DIY

So we had Emmalee's official 4 month check up today, the girl is a champ when it comes to her vaccines... She took the liquid rotovirus no problem, actually trying to hold it herself. It wasn't until the shot went into her leg that she looked at me with the pouty bottom lip and then the second shot was the wail but as soon as I scooped her up, she stopped. I guess I'm a good comfort for her!

She is now 14 lbs and 6 oz which is exactly 6 lbs up from when she was born. This puts her the 50th percentile for her weight. Dr says she's growing and developing just fine, just means she'll be a bit of a peanut!

She is also 26 inches long now, putting her in the 90th percentile for height! Tall and skinny... my little string bean!

He was impressed with her motor skills, commenting on how long she supports weight on her legs and the fact that she can pull her knees under her. He is still slightly concerned about the shape of her head but is impressed with the improvement it's made so we are supposed to just keep using the noggin nest (when not asleep) and propping her onto her left side when she is sleeping. We need to keep her on her belly as much as possible to reduce the stress on the back of her head on the right hand side. If it does not continue to correct itself we will have to discuss options like a helmet but he doesn't think we will need it because of the improvement she's already made. :)

Also, today marks the day I start to actually decorate our place. I have been waiting for a day off to go buy all the supplies I want. I am a closet art geek and there is no way I can afford the art I want but I'm gong to attempt to make some. Yep, my DIY skills are coming out. Here's some of my inspiration pieces:

We'll see how they come out!
