Yesterday, Elizabeth had a checkup and she’s now in the 99% for height and 97% for weight. Hehe, big girl. No wonder she’s in 2T/3T at 13 months. ^_^ I was pleased to see that her iron was at 12.5 (it’s gotta be the grits she has for breakfast every morning). She didn’t even care about the toe poke but she was livid about the bandaid, lol.
I made pumpkin bread this morning. Elizabeth loves it and so do the rest of us. Oh, and to give a little update on my convection oven, it works great. Strangely, the temperature has to be lowered by fifty degrees in order to bake properly (I’m not even going to tell you how long it took me to figure that out!) but then it’s perfect. It definitely heats our kitchen less which means the a/c doesn’t have to run for as long to cool off the house.
I bought a convertible carseat (not an affiliate link) online this morning. All of a sudden, in the last few weeks, Elizabeth has done a major growth spurt and she is laughably no longer fitting in her infant seat. So, once the new one comes in the mail on Friday, I’ll take apart the old one, wash it, and store it for her little brother/sister. ^_^
And speaking of baby #5, I am now 15 weeks along with him or her! This past week I started having a lot more contractions while breastfeeding so I’m definitely getting antsy about completing the weaning process. :/ I (or the baby, rather) seems to have gone through a growth spurt because I jumped a few pounds in a short time. I did start exercising, though, so maybe it’s some muscle, too.
Today, I have some school work to catch up on; Joshua and I are a little behind because we were especially busy on Monday and yesterday. I also have my meal plan and grocery list to get done for tomorrow. And laundry…always laundry… ;)
