Sandy's 6-Month Appointment

We went to see Dr. Baar today for Sandy's 6-month appointment. Sandy is in the 95th percentile for length (27.5 inches) and the 32nd percentile (15 pounds 4 ounces) for weight. Dr. Baar said she looked fine and there was nothing to worry about. The weight seems low to me, but she did have the stomach flu this weekend so I am hopeful her weight is really higher. Sandy got several shots this time.

Christmas Travels

After spending a quiet Christmas at home with our little family (I loved that!!), we got in the car the next morning and drove to Island Park to meet my family. It was a fun idea to rent a cabin with the extended family (my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. were all there). Bill loved the snowmobiling. Unfortunately, we all had the stomach flu, so we didn't get to play as much as we'd hoped.

I was so happy to see my family! My parents came from South Dakota, two of my sisters came from Idaho, and another sister came from Ohio. Molly, James, and Lexie came from Ohio and stayed with us for a couple of days before Christmas. We always love to see them!

Because of the stomach flu, we didn't take any pictures at Island Park. Luckily, my dad did. Here are a few that he took. He also took some breathtaking scenic pictures that are at his website:

Here is Sandy with her Aunt Kelsie.

And one of just Sandy.

Merry Christmas!

I took an Excedrin Migraine before I went to bed on Christmas Eve. That led to me waking up wired about 4 a.m. Sandy woke up around 5:30 to eat and when Bill heard us both up he decided it must be time to get up and open presents. So we opened all our presents very early this morning...

Sandy Claus is Coming Tonight

Tonight we went to Grandma Krantz's annual Christmas Eve party. Sandy was dressed in her santa suit for the occasion. Sandy also turned 6 months old today!!

Here she is sharing a cup with her Grandma Buhler.

It got too warm for the santa suit, so she spent part of the party in just a diaper.

Everyone chipped in for a digital camera for Grandma. She started using it right away, I hope she likes it!

After the party, we drove to Christmas Street to look at the lights. Each house on the street is decorated. Large signs along the street have scriptures on them so you can read the Christmas story as you drive.

Merry Christmas!!

A Girl and Her Dog

Sandy loves Sage (the dog)! She gets excited when she sees her and loves to be down on the ground near her. Here is a video of the two of them playing.

Rice Cereal

Sandy tried rice cereal for the first time today.
Who wants rice cereal?

That looks yummy!

First bite. We're not so sure about the cereal.

She likes the spoon, though.

We ended up with 1 tsp or less of cereal in her tummy and six baby spoons on the floor.
