A Walk in the Park

September 27, 2008

On September 11th we took Sophie to the doctor for her 6 month old checkup.  As many of you might recall, Sophie had a few issues with her size back in the early days.  Well now she weighs 14.5 pounds (25th percentile) and is 26.5 inches long (75th percentile!)  The doctor said everything looked great and she had no concerns.  Sophie even went to her and let her poke and prod her without crying or complaining.  So everything was good and everyone was happy – and then out came the needle!  Yes, four more shots, and four more looks of betrayal – “How could you let them do this to me!?!”  But after a few minutes Sophie calmed right down (it took Debbie a little longer) and was great the rest of the day.

To celebrate all our good news, we went for a walk down to the park.  Here’s Sophie in her cool pink velour track suit, hanging out in front of our house before our walk:

Of course we took the Bob stroller.  Here are Debbie and Sophie at the park entrance with Black Mountain in the background:

We put Sophie into the infant swing and gave her a few pushes.  She really liked it.

After that it was off to the bouncy frog (I think it was a frog?)

Then a quick trip down the slide,

followed by a climb across the monkey bars,

then a quick climb up the rock wall,

and finally another trip down the slide with Dad.

After all that working out Sophie was exhausted and went to sleep with her froggy friend, and then she slept the whole way home.
