5 Months and Peguy's Visit

Little Miss Kylie is already 5 months old, and growing growing growing!  She's growing and changing so fast, I can hardly keep up.  She went for a check up on Monday, and is as healthy as can be.  She's up to 16 lbs 11oz, and is 26.5" tall.  That puts her in the 90th+ percentile for both weight and height.  (In other words, she's heavier and taller than more than 90% of other babies her age.)  She's still exclusively breast fed, but we'll be starting her on solid foods next month.  She cut her first 2 teeth only a few days apart in the past week or two.  She's getting more stable when sitting up every day, she's started scooting herself backward when on her tummy, and she can roll almost all the way over--she just gets her arm stuck underneath her.

Peguy came down to see us again last week, and we had a really great visit. Neil stayed home this time, but Tyler came with her, and she brought along her cousin, who is visiting from London.  It was a very lazy couple of days, in that we didn't really go anywhere or do anything.  But, sine we had a 2 year old, a 12 month old, and a 5 month old to look after, I'm not sure that "lazy" is the right word.  We spent a lot of our time refereeing between Tyler and Elora.  If the experience taught me anything, it's that we need to wait at last until Elora is in kindergarten before having any more children.  :)

We went for a walk late in the day on Friday, and ended up at the little neighborhood play ground.  All three of the kids got to swing, but we had to cut our play time short when it was discovered that Tyler needed a clean diaper.  (It wasn't until we got back that we realized that Elora needed one too.)

It's crazy...when we met 4 years ago, we were both newly arrived in Germany.  Neither of us had children. I'd already been bitten by the baby-bug, and Peguy was telling me that I was crazy to want a baby so young.  Now she's in Maryland, I'm in Virginia, and we both have kids.  Where will we be 4 years from now??


  1. The kids are getting big so quickly! Glad you guys had such a great visit. Peguy's son is such a cutie!
