See this cake? It's the first time I've used props, butterflies from the dollar store. Normally I just make a two layer cake and call it a day. But Chris said I've set the bar really high for myself now, and I have to admit the cake did look so stinkin' cute!
These dolls are currently at Walmart for $4.97. They don't have too much make-up, come in two shades of black, plus a Latino colored (and white, obviously) and are dressed fairly appropriately. Which is more than I can say about the current crop of Barbies. Run to get one if your little likes dolls!
At her three year checkup the doctor said that while tiny, 20% for weight, and 3% for height, she thinks she will make it to 5 feet. But gave a disclaimer that you never know with kids who come home severely malnourished like Kembia was.
July 18, 2011- Two years ago today. Picking them up from the airport. She looks a tad shell-shocked.
Here's her stats: At the first doctor visit, one week after she came home she weighed 14 lbs. 7 oz. At 12 months old. I almost cry thinking about it. She was 2 feet and 2 inches tall. Her hands were the same size as her newborn brothers (born three weeks after she got home), and she wore 3 month sized clothes.
This week she was 27 pounds, and 2 feet 10 inches. Doesn't sound like a whole lot of growth in 2 years, but we are so proud of her.
We love you baby girl! (To which she'd reply "I'm not a baby!")
