After her trip to mommies work she got to go straight to Gymboree to do a play class with some of mommies old friends. She also loved going there. It was interesting for me to go back to Gymboree after being a teacher there, and now I am going as a mother, it feels a lot different. It was wonderful to get out and play with Annalise outside of our apartment floor, and she got to play with bubbles for the first time too. She also did some tummy time (longer than usual, so maybe we will eventually learn to roll over.) For now Annalise is quite content laying on her back, and not going anywhere.
Next week Annalise and I get to take a trip accross the country with Kendy and Angel. We are going to help out and have fun while doing it (all the way to Arizona.) We will see how well she travels.
On Monday Annalise has her next appointment with Dr. Moront her surgeon. I expect it will go wonderful, she has been growing and learning right on track, and I am so grateful for that. She couldn't have done it without the wonderful people at St. Christophers. It is amazing how things work out with a little faith. Yeah for a happy health five months!

Today Annalise had her five month appointment. I love going to see how big she is getting, but I hate it when she has to get her shots. She will actually be five months next Wednesday, I can't believe it. At her appointment the Doctor weighed and measured her, she has almost doubled her birth weight, she is now 14 pounds and 13 1/2 ounces, but the best part (and the reason I married Kevin int he first place), is that she is 27 1/2 inches tall (off the charts.)
She is the cutest thing in the world (according to me), and I am loving being home with her. This morning she woke up just after 7, which is about and hour and a half earlier than she usually does, which did not make me happy. But then when I got up with her she was making the cutest baby sounds and sat on my lap and told me a whole story (I don't know what she said, but she seemed to understand), so I couldn't even be mad at her for waking up early.
