Recently, at a check up, Pearl got new percentiles. If any of you remember her last percentiles these were roughly them:
Head: 30th %tile
Height: 70th %tile
Weight: 30th %tile
Tall and Skinny.
Oh how the tables turn.
At her recent appointment the numbers were these:
Head: 50th %tile
Height: 30th %tile
Short and Chunky.
This is Pearl and her cousin Brigham who is 2 months younger than her.
They are the same height but Pearl almost doubles his weight. It doesn't surprise me she's trying to eat him in this picture.
I wish they had percentiles for cheeks or bellies. I think hers would be off the charts. And that folks is why the Pearl Girl is the cutest baby ever. She has really become quite the dream baby. She sleeps between 8-11 hours every night. She is a gem! I asked her Doctor if this was a problem because she was going so long without eating. He replied, "Do you want me to show you her weight gain again?"
Pearl has grown so much. I can't believe she is 11 weeks old! These are two of her closest friends. Meet Raggedy Ann and Andy. She really already loves these two!
She is the smiliest chubbiest little marshmallow ever. We are so lucky to have her. Hope you all have a great weekend!
Pearl sat in her Bumbo for the first time. I'm not sure how she felt about it...:)
We went on our first family scooter ride!
Juuuuuust kidding. Auntie Pop Rox was a dear and babysat The Pea Train while we went on our first ride of the scootin' season.
I think Pearl realized for thefirsttime that she loathes the sun in her eyes. She definitely is my flesh and blood.
Brutus made hisfirst friend and it's a dang cat. What the...
He also went on his first scooter ride and thought the experience was just mediocre.
Millie opened her first fortune and it couldn't be truer.
Pearl Jam threw up herfirst gang sign.
Already a thug.
She also got her firstBeatle's article of clothing. Thanks Aunt Roxanne!
Pearl wore her first outfit from All-a-Dollar.
(Roman and I bought matching outfits for our babes. Pearl's is size 12 months. The bottoms are already bootie shorts and her belly is about to split through the monkey. Either she is gigantor or All-a-Dollar's sizing is 10 months off. You be the judge. Danny thinks it may be a combination of both. I have to agree.)
Pearl got her nails did for the first time.
And the biggest first, as of late, is Pearl got to meet her cousin Brigham for the first time!
He is seriously the cutest little man. He's Perfect. Yay for #3 of the fearsome foursome! Only one more to go!!!
She also looked like a St. Bernard for the first time to me.
Another first we're looking forward to is somebody's first St Patty's!!!
Today my dad walked into the family room with 18 hard boiled eggs, a garbage bag and an excited look on his face. You know these three things will make for a good time. Then he says, "Let's see how many we can eat!"
The only thing funnier than that was watching Millie slam egg after egg on Ricker's poor forehead.
In other news we tried Pearl's blessing hat on her today.
I love it. It was my great grandmother's baby hat.
Pretty cute huh?
I think if it was up to Pearl, she would get blessed in this and her diaper.
And at this rate she might have to. We had to postpone her blessing to March 25th because she was in the hospital.
I'm hoping this little chub will still fit in her dress by then!
