Poppy at Month four:
This month has been quite productive. She has been growing by leaps and bounds, like
normal. She’s now reaching for everything and
putting it all in her mouth and dropping it on the floor. Nothing is safe within a foot and a half of her. She is sitting up well, if you help her
out. She’s standing well, if you help her out. I think she is just
starting to change from blue to hazel eyes, though that’s only in certain lighting. Of course she’s
still chubby. We think she is about 17 pounds and 25 and a half
inches. She’s still gloriously, generously, thankfully, happy and easy going. We are so lucky.
The flight to Colorado was fantastic. Penelope slept through the
accent and decent and a little bit in between. She was so good. We
actually had to sit in between other people, the middle seats, on in
front of each other. We passed her back and forth a little bit over the
top which was kind of entertaining. We got a shuttle from the airport to
Keystone, again she slept through a lot of pressure changes and did
remarkably well. We got into our hotel room and had the gorgeous view
over a little lake. And every thing’s amazingly picturesque.
The meetings are going fine and it’s great to meet the families of other employees. Poppy is like kryptonite, melting the hearts of all around her.
I wasn’t there, but Poppy wet swimming today and had an inflatable boat… apparently she loved it – and was squeeling at the water, while anita swam around – using the boat as a kickboard. too cute.
