I had an eye appointment yesterday evening...Daddy and Ayla had a little too much fun in the waiting room. If she's anything like me, she'll be needing these someday:

Strike a pose!
She likes to sit on my dad's lap and watch him play Mah-Jong on the computer.
And thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes!!! I can't believe I'm 29! Crazy. For the first time ever, I didn't wake up with that warm-fuzzy "it's my birthday" feeling...it just feels like another day. A nice day though. :)

We've also been trying Gerber Puffs...I need to get a picture of her face when she has one in her mouth. It's so funny! I think the texture bothers her at first because up until this point, everything she has eaten has been soft. She squeezes her eyes shut and wrinkles up her entire face like I just gave her the grossest thing ever but once it starts to melt, she might like them. I'm sure with time, she won't be able to get enough of them.

It was really nice to be able to spend time with both of our families. I think Ayla got a kick out of having all of her favorite people in one house! :)

When we got there, she was super happy and talkative...she couldn't get enough of all the action in the waiting room. She was flirting with everyone in the room...it was so funny!
She weighed in at 16 lbs. 9 oz (59th percentile) and she is 27 inches long (86th percentile). And are you ready for this? Her head...92nd percentile. No wonder she tips over when she tries to sit up! :) At her 9-month appointment in July, she'll be off the charts! Hehe...
She cried...no, screamed while Dr.Davey was examining her. She usually likes him, but today she just wasn't having it. I couldn't hear a thing he was telling me! After he was done and I was able to pick her up, she kept sneaking glances at him and would stick out her lip and let out a tiny whimper. :)
He said she looks great from head-to-toe...as always, I love to hear that. He also explained how her diet will become more diverse in the next few months...biscuits, crackers, Cheerios, puffs, yogurt, pudding, bread, and eventually small bits of food that we eat. It'll be fun to see her try everything! He said not to worry too much about her not liking the pureed dinners with meat in them...we can even skip them if we want to because she gets enough protein from her formula and pretty soon we can give her real meat. He also gave us props for not using her pacifier anymore...I'll take every bit of encouragement I can because we still have some tough moments here and there where I know that darn binky would temporarily solve everything. If her doctor says it's a good thing, it must be, right? :)
She actually did okay with her shots...she cried less than she did with Dr.Davey! Her little face still turned bright red, but she didn't get as upset as I expected her to. Good for her...and good for me. :) By the time we got home, she had forgotten all about it because she was all smiles. She's now taking a much-needed nap before we head to the airport to pick up my parents...finally!
