Most of you probably know by now that I have a thing for little old man clothes, so as soon as the weather started cooling down I couldn't help myself. Shawl collared oatmeal colored cardigan? Yes , please!
Luckily, it fits Milo perfectly, and he does not seem to mind wearing it. I think it is the very cutest thing ever!

when i came to pick her up, she asked me if she and a friend could have a playdate. sounded great to me - having an activity for an hour would be awesome! i headed to the playground with the girls while the other mom went to pick up her other kid. penny was so excited running on the track that she completely faceplanted at full speed. i was way behind because i had milo in the bjorn, but i got to her pretty quickly, scooped her up and carried her the rest of the way. she told me, in the most pathetic voice you can imagine "i guess i just wasn't looking where i was going". it took a minute or two, but she recovered pretty well and went off to play and climb - totally fine. about two minutes later, the fellow mom came over and gave me a heartfelt apology - her son had misbehaved in school, and she had to bring him home to show him some consequences. as a result, no playdate. penny ran over to tell me she was working on the monkey bars, and i broke the bad news to her. i suggested, as an alternative, maybe i take her for ice cream for her 4 3/4 birthday? seemed like a good plan to penny! she went over to tell the other mom, then went to say goodbye to her friend. as she was coming back to me, she got full on kicked in the face by a girl dangling from the monkey bars. not the other girl's fault at all, but she looked devastated, and penny could not believe it.
"i just don't think i'm ever going to stop getting hurt", she told me, as i did my best to comfort her. we walked slowly and carefully to the ice cream truck, and managed to make it to the stoop with an ice cream cone with no further incident. i told her that she'd better not fall out of her bed tonight.

Milo had his one month check up today, and we found out that he is 10 lbs 9.5 oz, and 22". Though this seems huge, he is right smack in the 50th percentile, so we have another totally average kid on our hands (in size, anyway). He got his first shot as well, and he did not like it at all. Penny came along on this visit, and she got to show off her big sister knowledge. We measured her on the doctors' ruler and found out that she is 41"!
On the way to the doctor, Penny asked me if they were going to weigh Milo, and I said yes. She asked if he was going to be lying down, and I said yes. She told me that this would tell the doctor that he weighed too much, because if you stand on the scale, it just weighs your feet, but if you're lying down it weighs all of your parts. I totally get why she thinks this, but could not explain it to her in the time we had, so I just said "That is an interesting theory, but I'm sure the doctors will figure it out". Total science mom fail.
