We took them the the fish hatchery in Issaquah, Pike Place Market, and the University of Washington to experience some of our favorite places. It was typical Seattle weather most of their visit, meaning cold and wet, but we still had a nice time.
We are so thankful for them coming out to meet Sadie and visit with us. It won't be too long before we make Sadie's first trip to NC at the end of March.
Length: 23 in. (35%)
Weight: 13 lb 13 oz (66%)
Head Circumference: 16 cm (80%)
I looked back in Jude's baby book and he weighed 13 lb. 6 oz at 10 weeks and these were her measurements at 14 weeks, so even though she's on the bigger end, she is still smaller than brother.
Sadie has a very sweet temperament. She likes to suck on her thumb/fist. She "talks" non stop and enjoys her new toy (pictured above). She continues to smile and laugh often.
After a growth spurt at 10 weeks, she has had difficulty getting back on a good schedule and has regressed some in her sleeping at night. I am way more laid back with her though. I try to keep her on a good schedule during the day and I know night time sleep will come. She still does 6-7 hour stretches most nights. She is a great example of how you can do the exact same things with 2 different babies and get different results. At this time with Jude, he was sleeping consistently 8-9 hours per night, every night. She's not, but that's ok; it will come.
We took Jude for an early 3 year check up. He weighed 34 lb. (80%) and is 36 in tall (60%). This amazed me because when he had to go for a booster shot at 2.5, he weighed 34 lbs then and was 33 in. tall. He has grown 3 in. in 5 months but not put on an ounce. He's really shot up and is looking so much like a big boy.
Jude did not prefer the doctor's visit, inspite of the role playing and preparation I've tried. Poor guy kept screaming "I don't prefer dat!" He is so sweet.
I can't believe we will be celebrating Jude's 3rd birthday in a few weeks. We are beyond blessed to have healthy and happy children.
Thank you Lord, for your many blessings!
