Dala's Spring Visit

We had a great visit with Dala. She arrived on Friday evening just in time to give Miss Sadie a bath.

On Saturday morning, we headed into the city early to meet 'Uelita and walk the High Line. The sun was shining bright but it was windy and slightly chillier than we anticipated. We stopped in Chelsea Market to have lunch and give a quick hello to Robin at Amy's Bread. Dinner was delicious Dominican delivery from El Castillo de Jagua....mmm.

Each night was early to bed because Sadie was often to rise. (We didn't cry it out until the following week.) Every morning, Sadie had a special wave to greet Dala. They definitely have a special connection.

Sunday was Daddy, Dala and Sadie on their own. Mommy had to work open houses. Apparently, most of the day was spent watching Sadie crawl, reading the Itsy Bitsy Spider and general baby entertainment.

Dala was on her way back to North Carolina Monday morning with an 11 hour drive in front of her. We were very sad to see her go but look forward to seeing her for Sadie's first birthday.

Worst Blogger Ever

Well, it seems that it was winter when I last posted. I thought blogging would be a good way to keep up with Sadie's milestones but, alas, I am not the diligent blogger I thought I would be.

Here's the latest and greatest of the last couple of months.

Six month check up:
Weight: 20lbs 11oz
Height: 28.5 inches

This meant she dropped from the 120th percentile to 105th percentile. My little amazon!

Seven Month innoculation:
Weight: 20lbs 11 oz

At this visit she was having only getting an innoculation so they didn't do height or all the other check up business. However, this visit was memorable because of Sadie's reaction to the shot.

Sadie was playing with a scrap of paper when the doctor stuck her with the needle and plunged it into her thigh. She stopped playing with the paper, made the grunt "Ehhhh" and then returned to playing with the scrap of paper. The doctor flipped out. Not a tear, not a scream...nada. She's a beast! I am sure the X-Men are looking for their newest recruit and Sadie is on the short list.


About two weeks, Sadie really started crawling. It was perfect timing as Sharon a.k.a. Dala, came to visit that weekend. See next post for details.

Well, that's the latest. I will try to be better about posting.
