Minus One!

We had a little surgery today at Miami Children's Hospital to remove an extra toe that Morgan was born with. She's at the hospital tonight for observation (with Dad & Mom too) and will go home in the morning with a bright pink fiberglass cast on her foot that goes from just below her knee to her (now 5) toes on the left foot. Her doctor says she'll be able to tap dance and kick box again in a few days. Until then, it's Codeine.

One!

Morgan was happy to have a birthday party with Nana, Lee, Bob, Phyllis, plus Bill W. and Katie and Nikki also dropping by for good wishes. Michele made a yummy cake (white cake with red and blue gumdrops in it) on Sunday morning and it went well with burgers and hot dogs.

She got a new handmade outfit and a baby doll with a crib, from Nana; a monkey backpack with a safety cord plus an activity center for the car from Grandpa Bob ; a Snoopy puppy on wheels and a hip pink outfit from Phyllis; and a set of roll-around cars and a mini lawn chair from Mom and Dad. Benjamin and Jacob sent some scrumptious personalized towels that she can use for bath time.

After that, she went to have a birthday visit with Dr. Trujillo, her pediatrician. His nurse took blood, and gave her 3 vaccine shots, so Morgan had a rough day and came home sore and tired. Ouch! She did, however, earn the coveted blue and gold vaccine forms which allows her to continue at day care for another year. After August 20, she'll graduate from the infants section at Riviera Child Care Center up to the Toddlers group. We're proud of her!

The doctor also said she's growing fast. On May 31 she was 29 inches long, and now on Aug. 7 she's already 31 inches (and 24 lbs. at both visits). That puts her in the 95th percentile for her age among girls. Almost time for those 18-24m size jeans!

Morgan's saying a lot of "da-da-da-da" lately, but her most common phrase is when something falls or is dropped - she says "uh-oh." She also points at several things and calls them "bah," including flowers, books, the paddle fan and the piano.

0.980821918 years and counting

Morgan's got one week to go until she turns one so it's probably a good time for a blog update. She's growing rapidly and her personality has new sparkle to it every day.

She's just gotten over a flu and gone back to school this week; she had suffered a fever, cough and other annoyances and was sent home on Wednesday. She stayed home with Michele on Thursday and Friday with me, and today she was SO happy to be back in class with her friends Eric and Caitlin. She has been spending one day a week in the toddlers class so she acclimates to the increased activity, and next week or perhaps shortly after, she will graduate up to that group.

Around the house she's learned to crawl so fast that she can get around as fast as Michele or I can walk. So we've had to block the stairs and the kitchen entrances, and we're toddler-proofing the house. Michele had an inspired idea to convert the area under the stairs to a play room, and the results are great. She goes and plays in her area without prompting since her doggie ("doh doh") lives there now.

We took her to a pool party at Sage and Jae's house last weekend, and she loved playing in the water with Mommy and Daddy. She clearly likes the other girls and was watching them as if all the action centered around herself. She splashed around in an inflated chair as if she were in the bathtub, and almost, almost propelled herself around the shallow end. She crawled around the pool deck recklessly near the water and will definitely need swim lessons sooner rather than later.

We took Morgan on her first road trip. She didn't appreciate being in the car seat for the 2-hours each way to Naples, but she loved playing with Grandma and Grandpa, and going on a little cruise for Grandpa's birthday. We had a great time dining at a dockside restaurant for lunch - Morgan got lots of attention and fried snacks.

Torso-locomotion

This week, Morgan breezed through her first taste of the International Baccalaureate track (just kidding) at Riviera Child Care Center. Each day opened with emotional drama -- but by Friday, she had adjusted. Caregiver Millie reported that Morgan clapped her hands, smiled during a piano number, ate all her fish sticks and played with both Eric and Caitlin.

Morgan hadn't been crawling a lot, but after her first day at school she came home and was slithering all around our tiled living room. We think she's learning from her classmates. So, Saturday Mom took her up to the mall at Sawgrass and got her some long-pants outfits so she'd be better prepared for torso-locomotion.

Today (Sunday) we went to Sage and Jae's house for a pool party and BBQ, which was incredible fun for Morgan. She had a blast in the pool and loved watching the other children play with brightly colored float toys. In the pool, we also played with Jordan and Angelina and Liam and Kai. By the way Cris and Claire make great burgers and their South Miami house is awesome. Stay tuned, there may be some great photos to come from this party when pro photographer Sarah Preston e-mails them to me.

It was also incredible fun for daddy, who remembered playing in various pools with his own father by using posh hotels, the Granada Country Club, and the Venetian Pool as if they were our backyard (until we got a cool pool of our own.)
