Meet The Robinsons

Kennedy & I went to see "Meet The Robinsons tonight and had a total blast. She really enjoyed it - I don't think she picked up on all the little parts of the plot but it was really funny. Graeme was away for work, otherwise he would've been there with us and he would've really enjoyed it - all that science and inventing - that's right up his alley!

Have a great rest-of-weekend everyone!

Yep, she may not eat much orally, but she DOES have her favourites! Marshmallows are right up there on the list along with Goldfish crackers (well, not eating so much as licking all the salt off), yogurt tubes, and ice cream.

Today we had an appointment with the pediatrician - she's up to 64 lbs and 48 inches, so her weight is staying right in the 50th percentile but her height is really low at only about the 5th percentile. She had some blood work done through endocrinology about a month ago, but we haven't got the results back yet. Those results will tell us whether or not she needs to go for further growth hormone testing. She just may be short. The endo is just concerned because Graeme and I are both in the 90th percentile for height and children are usually similar to their parents. That's not throwing "CHARGE" into the mix, however. Time will tell, I guess. Anyway, other than that, she's good 'n' healthy otherwise, she got a clean bill of health from good ol' Dr. Todd.

School is so-so at the moment - I'll save that for another post. Big meeting at the school next week.

Picture of the Day

Our little sweetheart had a birthday party today - she was all dolled up in her fancy red blouse and she looked so adorable I had to take a photo of her. I was wondering how she would make out at the party because this party was for a girl she knows only from her bowling team (it was the coach's daughter's party). When we got to the restaurant, I said, "do you want mom to stay or leave?" - without any hesitation whatsoever she said, "leave!" So leave I did. I took a beautiful walk down to the City Market and shopped/walked around the uptown area until she was finished.
Here's the girl:

Sleepover at Nana & Papa's

Kennedy went last night for a sleepover at Nana & Papa's house as Graeme & I were going curling with a group of students from the university. We aren't "avid curlers" by any means of the imagination - Graeme didn't even curl last night as he is sporting a sore elbow and I've only done it a couple times before. It's not a sport we watch a lot at home, either, so Kennedy hasn't been exposed to it all that much.

Kennedy has watched curling on television with my father before, however, and as we were leaving she said, "will I see you on T.V., mama?" I stifled a giggle and replied, "no baby, not tonight." I think because she was out there with Papa again, she just assumed that if we were curling, she would be watching us on T.V. Ah, the innocence of youth. Nope, no cameras at our little event; the only camera crews that would've captured last night's curling shenanigans would be those of a blooper-type show.

Suffice to say, there weren't too many incidences of any "houses" looking like this photo at the curling rink we were at last night. It was some ugly curling at times, but it was also great fun, which is the main point!

Hey everyone - I started this blog to journal our family escapades and keep everyone updated on us. It's a little easier for me to use this method for ongoing updates. I hope you'll check back often for lots of pictures, videos and news!
