A 26lb update

Sitting
Mina is sitting by herself with out support now. She is enjoying being able to look around her better. She really likes people/baby watching at the park and yoga.

Crawling
She isn’t crawling forward yet but is can go backwards when she wants to. She can definitely get around when she trys. She no longer stays where I put her when I set her down. She is wanting to get into everything. She is gearing up for being quite the little terror when she get how to go forward.

New Activities
We picked out some new toys for her, a big ball, some little balls and a piano. They are quickly becoming favourites. We also picked out a floating ring with a canopy and built in seat for use in the pool. Yes, we have been in the outdoor pool already (mom’s got the sunburn to prove it.) The was water a little chilly but Mina didn’t seem mind. We have also had our first play time in Campbell Park and Mina has hit the swings a few times now. We are looking at getting a PeaPod to use in the park, at the pool, generaly when we are out and about as well as when we come home for a visit. It will be nice to have a portable safe place for her to sleep/play.

Doctors
Mina had her first visit to the paediatrician today (family doctors won’t typicaly see small children here.)
She is developing well, she is right where she should be. She has grown to 27″ tall. When the nurse first weighted her she was 26lb 6oz(?!)
I asked her if she was sure and she was, I asked her if it was normal for a child to gain 10lbs in 3 months she told me “that was a question for the doctor”. The doctor on the other hand told me if she weighed that much (at her hight) she’d have a big round body with a itty bitty head on top. He had her re-weighed. (16lbs 8oz)
The doctor is really nice with a great sense of humour and is easy going. Mina liked his toy covered stethoscope.
