The fair, the doctor

Dear Maya and Emi,

Mommy might be kicking herself tomorrow morning for starting this blog post so late in the evening. It's been a rough couple of days with Emi's sleep schedule and I should be getting some z's myself right now, but here I am sorting through photos of our week. Well, I'll keep the narrative short, at least.

We went to the fair last weekend. We spent lots of time in the animal area and Maya, I think you touched almost every goat there--not to mention the goat you milked! How cool is that?!? We also went on a few rides and you were so brave, even braver than mommy on one we rode together. Then you asked to go in the plastic-blow-up-hamster-wheel-on-water thingy, and we worried you might be scared or confused by it, but you had a blast. Next year you're really going to take that fair by storm!

Emi, you had your one-month checkup this week. Mommy was worried that you might have reflux since you've been spitting up a lot lately and have been pretty fussy. The doctor said we'll give it a few weeks before treating it as such, though, because you gained 2.5 pounds since your last appointment! That's more than an ounce a day! You're now 10 pounds, 2 ounces and 22 inches long. Go, Emi! Everything else is looking good, too, so hopefully your mood and your belly settle down soon!

Well, fingers crossed for a good night of sleep for us all. Love you two!
