Fire Station Fun


This past Saturday we got to take a tour of our local Coralville fire station with the Iowa City Moms Blog group! This event was a family one so Tim came along too. When I told Kate we were going to the fire station she quickly ran to her room and grabbed her Clifford Fire Station book... she has such a good memory! She insisted on bringing it in the car and "read" it on the way there! We had a lot of fun and learned a lot too. Kate totally loved climbing on and in each fire engine! Only down side...they wouldn't let her "drive" aka sit in the drivers seat...she was pretty sad about that :)







Oh and I just had to include these two pictures of Millie because they are just too.dang.cute!

Amelia- 2 months


This little lady is growing up! We are sure enjoying her sweet smiles and pleasant demeanor! We received a glowing report at her 2 month appointment. Amelia is gaining weight as expected and looks fantastic. She loves watching her mobile on her swing and loves watching the lights in her floor gym. She is eating well and only gets up once in the middle of the night...how did I get so lucky?!

She didn't love her 2 month shots...you forget how hard they can cry! Kate never had much of a reaction to her immunizations other than being a bit more sleepy...but poor Millie was pretty fussy afterwards and was inconsolable for about an hour that afternoon but otherwise did great. Thanks goodness for Tylenol, it seemed to do the trick. Here are her 2 months stats:

Weight:  9 lbs 10 oz (14th%itle)
Height:  20 inches (still not on the chart!! Below the 3rd%itle but following her own curve quite nicely)
