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.
