Shawn just came home for lunch and brough in the mail and we got a letter from our agency with Clarissa's five month well baby checkup report. Sometimes when they send the well baby reports they send an updated photo, so I got really excited hoping that we were going to see an updated photo, but there wasn't one. :(
It was basically just two pages of info of regular well baby checkup stuff. Seriously, we have the biggest baby in the world! She weighed 7 pounds at birth, 18 pounds at 4 months and according to todays info she now weights 19.5 pounds!! The clothes I bought her the other day to put in her care package aren't going to fit. Darn.
Everything else looked good. It almost made me a little sad to hear that she's laughing and cooing and smiling. Happy for HER of course, because she sounds happy, but sad for me because I'm missing it.
I didn't realize that it was going to be so hard to get updated info on her! I'm happy that I have something new to hold on to, something that further proves to me that she's real, but it's hard to hear about her and not be able to touch her and kiss her sweet chubby cheeks! I'm also dissapointed that there wasn't an updated photo. I need to learn not to get my hopes up about things like that. Sometimes they send a photo and sometimes they don't.
Anyway, that's the update from our house today. Now I'm going back to working on the picture book!
