Gracie had her first US doctor check up today. Our pediatrician said that Grace looks great! She weighs 30 pounds (50% percentile in her age range) and is 36 inches tall (50-75 percentile in her age range). She is actually shorter than the measurements we previously got which was 39 inches. All of Gracie's parts look great and she even has her 2 year molars. A few more tests have to be run...I have to get a stool sample (yuck)! This will test for any parasites that may be hiding in her body.

An update on us...
Today, the kids went to school and Ryan went to work. Grace and I ran some errands after her doc appointment. I put her down for her nap. Ryan has done this every day since we have had Grace (have I mentioned she loves her Papa). I was hoping today's nap would be magically perfect. Unfortunately, she cried for her Papa for 25 minutes then decided to crash. Other than that little bit of sadness, she and I have had fun today. She is talking so much and is really starting to mimic us.

We are so glad that we are home and Grace is too :)
