Ashtyn at Four Months

I took Ashtyn for her four month check up last week. She weighed 15 lbs 5 oz. That puts her in the 84th percentile for weight. The doctor said to her, "you like to eat!" We've started her on baby cereal now. She isn't great at eating yet. She only gets 3/4 of it down each time. Maybe once she eats food better it'll help slim her down a bit. She's gone to the 76th percentile in height so that's better. If she has anything to say about it, she'll crawl soon. She rolls to her tummy within seconds of being placed in her gym. Then she propels herself forward with her legs. It can be rough on her face since she doesn't really use her arms yet. She doesn't seem to mind. She just wants to get moving. I think she's just the cutest. She's always happy and has a way of melting my heart with her big slobbery, toothless grin. She's awesome.

First Week of Kindergarten

Our little RyRy is now in school. She is an official kindergarten student at my school. It's a little strange for me as my worlds collide. She seems to like it.

After the first day, she explained to us that she has manners now, follows rules, and can spell the word "red." I guess we should've sent her to kindergarten a long time ago. :0)

The only problem is her comfort level at my school. She acts like she's at home sometimes. She's been spending time there with me since she was born. Today her teacher wanted to talk to me after school about her running around and being loud in class at the end of the day. She was apparently off the wall. It sounds like a typical day at home to me. We need to work on separating home and school. I guess keeping her there 12 hours some days doesn't help. :0(

I guess we'll figure it all out. We've never been kindergarten parents before. I did attend my first PTO meeting as a teacher/parent this week. Weird!
