Micah and...gross!

Well, Micah had a re-certification appointment for WIC today. They measured him and asked questions about his diet and so forth. I asked them about the Parents As Teachers program where they provide info on how your child should be developing mentally, emotionally, and socially depending on the child's age. They also teach parents how they can help their child develop in those areas. They offer to come to your home to "assess" your child or (as I am doing) you can go to their office (which is right by the WIC offices). It sounds like a good, helpful program. So, here are his stats:

Weight: 28 lbs.
Height: 35 1/4 in.
Other comments: The WIC nurse says he is growing normally. I told her I didn't feel like I was giving him enough veggies, so she gave me some ideas about that. The Parents As Teachers consultant said that Micah is doing very well in his vocabulary and in matching. She suggested giving Micah some easy puzzles to work on and to not be afraid to challenge him. She looked at Paige, too, and said that she is developing well also. She can roll over both ways, and she is absolutely fascinated with her hands. I'm pretty darn sure she is teething, because one second she is her normal happy self and the next second she is screaming. She is still sleeping well through the night, though. I'm grateful for that!

Oh, now the gross part. Micah threw up his dinner and his lunch...all over Chris yesterday. Later, we were watching the preview for "Four Christmases" where the baby pukes on Witherspoon's character. We laughed as Chris said, "Yep, they never stop throwing up on you." It was quite the mess, but we got it cleaned up, so no worries...unless he throws up again. :) We'll just hope he doesn't.
