Danilyn had a check up today and she weighed in at almost 16 lbs at 3 months old (4 months on the 12th). She is just over 23 inches long. Her weight is in the 97th percentile! Her head is in the 75th to 95th percentile. Her length is the 50th the 75th. At least I think that is what the doctor said...she spewed out so many facts so fast I am having a hard time remembering everything she said. But she did say she is a big girl with a big head. To compare, Carlee wasn't 16 lbs until she was about 8 months old. Wowzers.
Dani at 1 week old.
Danilyn at 15 weeks. Double the weight!
If you all haven't seen the movie "Jump" or the movie "Flipped" you ought to because they were both good.
For those of you with restless youngsters stuck inside because of the cold, try making some salt dough to entertain them for a while. It kinda makes a mess when they play with it but it dries and sweeps/wipes up easy and is just as easy to make really quickly. Here is the recipe (I cut it in half):
2 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
Slowly add 3/4 cup water and 1/2 T. oil
Mix and knead for five minutes.
Add food coloring if desired.
Store in an airtight container.
