Vivi's 3rd Dr.'s Appointment

Vivi met with the Dr. again today and all indications are that she will quickly follow her brother into the realm of brilliance. She has gained more weight, now weighing in at 7 lbs. 6 ounces. She's also got a "really strong neck." She's otherwise very healthy. Of course, they gave Vivi a shot today and she about lost it. Saddest thing you'll ever see is a little baby cry like that.

We had a return visit from the Lollipop fairy, as the magic beans sprouted new lollipops. The lollipops barely made it however, because in the middle of the night -- after Jackson had "watered" the magic jelly beans -- the neighbors in whose garden the beans had been planted came home. Mr. Allen thought that Aida had planted the lollipops for him and so he swooped them up and took them inside, so when Aida and Max awoke there were no lollipops. Later that day, when Ms. Joanne, Mr. Allen's wife, was on her daily trip to Panera with Jackson, she told him about the cute little lollipops Aida had planted for Mr. Allen. Boy was Jackson upset. Ms. Joanne went straight home and replanted the lollipops. What a great neighborhood we live in.

Watching my baby get a shot used to be the saddest thing I had ever seen. Until this morning when he pulled himself up on the rungs of the barstool and subsequently pulled the barstool over and on top of himself. Not at all delightful.
