Nine short months. She caught her first cold... just when we were getting accustomed to sleeping through the night. It is probably from collecting signatures in the cold for "residents against rising HOA fees" or it is from HER COUSINS. It's got to be her cousins. For her nine month checkup, she didn't even flinch when the doctor stole blood from her heel. I attribute that to all the rough housing she does with her Dad. Her official weight 21 lbs 4 ounces and 29 inches long. I thought my arm muscles would keep up with her growth... not true.
