Nine (and a Half) Months Old! May 20, 2009

Filed under: Elyse — hjhadams @ 11:43 pm

I can’t believe that it’s been over two weeks since Elyse turned nine months old.  Time is going by far too fast. 

We went to see her pediatrician, Dr. Young, on her nine month birthday.  She had to get one shot and her finger pricked to test her iron, but she took it like a champ and did really great.  Her stats are as follows:

Weight:  19 lbs 3 oz  (60th percentile)

Height:  28 3/4”  (90th percentile)

Head:  44 1/2 cm  (70th percentile)

Last week we took her to JCPenney to have her nine month pictures taken, and we’re very happy with how they turned out!

Michigan Getaway

Filed under: Elyse,Vacations — hjhadams @ 11:33 pm

Jim had some time off of work before starting his new job, so two weeks ago we headed to Michigan for a few days.  We drove to Saugatuck and stayed on the Kalamazoo River. 

On Tuesday we drove to Holland, MI, to check out the Tulip Festival.

After the Tulip Festival we drove to Lake Michigan to check out the beach.  It was SO beautiful, and the water was so clear…makes me sad that the beaches on our side of the lake aren’t so nice. 

Elyse LOVED the sand.  She was so interested in it, and was covered head to toe by the time we left.

We had a really great time even though it was a quick trip.  We were able to relax for a few days before Jim had to go back to the “real world”.
