We had to cancel Margaret's one-year well check in December so it became more like a 13-and-a-half-month check up. She's short and pleasantly plump. 29-and-a-quarter inches (30th percentile) and 22lbs 9ozs (70th percentile).
She greatly disliked getting her shots - four total. And unlike any of my children's vaccinations before, she had a nasty reaction. Fortunately, her reaction, although bad, was considered within the range of "normal." But that didn't make it an easier for her (or us) to suffer through. We were all thrilled when her fever broke and she went back to one of her favorite pastimes, eating.
Not knowing how sick she was going to be, we had already left for our annual West Virginia ski trip. So another year of no skiing for me, but that turned out to be okay because Nate was a little too young for ski school so he needed to stay in the house too. The house is right on the slope, so the three of us had a fun time watching skiers and looking for people we know. And Nate looked forward to his cousins coming back at the end of the day so he could sled and then they could visit the hot tub.
We do have some great videos of sledding but they live on Aaron's phone which means I might never see them again.
We were without one cousin - poor RJ had a school commitment that meant he couldn't join the trip. Although that really bummed Nate out, he and Tommy managed to have fun and get into trouble all on their own.
