Baby G #4

The doctor officially moved out due date back 9 days (a bit of a bummer for me) so instead of November 10 it is now November 19th. We also have a schedules c-section on November 12, Friday at noon. We will see if I make it that long this time : )

Alison- 15 months update

At Dr. weighed in at 25 lbs. and was 31 3/4 inches tall. She was in the 70th and 85th percentile respectively. Since learning to walk she really slimmed down a TON, so sad to see only ONE roll on her thighs. She is obviously walking, and running all over the place trying to keep up with her brother and sister. She is also talking...about 10 words or so. Mama, Dada, thank you, birdie, dog, puppy.....
