Sleepover with Grandma and Grandpa Snodgrass
I know this is a couple of days late, but Daniel had a great visit with Dr. Norby on Tuesday. Of course, we were the only knuckleheads who went to the Dr. in the middle of a snowstorm, not the brightest idea, but we are only about a mile away, so it wasn't too bad. So here are his stats: Weight: 19.5 lbs (25th percentile)
Height: 28.5 "(50th percentile)
Head Circumference: 18"
He is doing great, had no shots thank goodness! Dr. Norby was greatly impressed by how Daniel is progressing. He is doing things that many babies don't do till they reach 1 yr to 15 months. He has a ton of teeth, which we are now brushing twice a day, we are also adding lunch to his daily routine and "quiet" time. This is an hour each day set aside for Daniel to play in his crib, or nap, or even scream while mommy takes a short break as well. I know some parents don't agree with letting a baby cry, but sometimes even mommy needs a little bit of a break. With Daniel's sleep schedule ever changing and my boy wanting to stay up between 6 and 7 am, it makes for a long day, and mommy needs a little time to regroup after several hours of play, music, dancing, feeding and even a bit of crying from time to time (sometimes from both of us). Motherhood is such a wonderful experience, but even I get a little overwhelmed with it all from time to time. Daniel is having a wonderful week, and we have enjoyed a week snowbound in the house. We are ready for a fun time at Great grandma and grandpas tomorrow night for dinner.
