Perry's 2 Year Well Check

Today I took Perry to her 2 year check up. She has not been eating very much lately, so I was curious to see what the doctor would say about it. She is 35 inches tall--between 75-90 percentile. She only weighs 22.6 pounds--less than 5 percentile. Her doctor said just by looking at the numbers, she would be very worried about her weight. However, by looking at Perry, she is not concerned. She doesn't look malnourished or anything. She said to keep offering her food, but don't make a big deal if she doesn't eat. So here's to hoping her appetite picks back up. She really weighs about as much as a 1 year old. She definitely wasn't lacking any energy. She was bouncing off the walls & being so loud! Here she is on the procedure table doing somersaults. In the 2nd picture, she's doing one right on the edge! Luckily there was a chair right next to it because she landed in it. The last picture is where I found her later today. And yes she had the water running.

New Goal

I haven't made goals for the past few years because I never keep them. But this past year I noticed one thing that didn't happen that I am determined to change- More family pictures. Not professional ones, but your everyday group shot. As I was making my blog book for 2014, I noticed we only had 1 family picture. That is pitiful! And I can probably count on one hand how many pictures I am in with the kids. I'm always the one taking the pictures, but it's important for me to be in them as well. Heaven forbid something happens to me. The kids memories would fade and they'd have no idea what I looked like. So how am I going to fix this problem? It's such a pain trying to get someone to take your family's picture. And most of the time it doesn't turn out too good, but you don't want to make them retake it. So I'm buying a tripod. Yep. It will be a pain sometimes, but I feel it's worth it. I'll take it with me whenever we go somewhere I know we'll want a family picture. So here's to more family pictures in the new year.
