Guess Who's a Month Old . . .!
Actually, it's more like 5 weeks now.
But look, I know I'm delinquent in posting here. You know I'm delinquent in posting here. The baby knows, too (and she's disappointed, if I interpret her behavior at 3 this morning correctly). So let's leave it at that.
Either way you cut it, it's been a month or so since Gracie Wieland made her first appearance, so I'm bringing you this pic (above), which shows the girl right after a particularly good feed.
For those out there who haven't totally abandoned the blog yet, what a month (and a week) it's been. In the last 36 days or so, our Gracie has dealt with --
1) A particularly nasty double ear infection;
2) Two trips to the E/R and an emergency gall bladder surgery for Our Woman in LA (aka, Mommy);
3) Visits from assorted friends, relatives, and well-wishers (pictures coming soon).
. . . And so much more.
But here's the skinny: L.A. BABY (like it? It's her official nom de plume!) is doing great. She's about 10 pounds now, and 22 1/2 inches long, which puts her in the 95th percentile for length and the 75th percentile for weight.
She's lifting her head, focusing on faces and objects, and starting to grab things with both hands (like her bottle, her pacifier, Nana Flo's glasses, Daddy's shirt, etc.)
Good times. So good that I can't resist a second picture.
