London - 4 Year Stats

Our Little Princess
London turned 4 earlier this month. Unfortunately for her, she spent her actual birthday sick on the couch as she had come down with a laryngitis-like virus. Of course, that was the day they had a bounce house at her daycare to kick off the summer festivities. To top it off, her daddy was away on business. I tried to make it as special as I could with a trip to the grocery store to pick out some cupcakes and then to Papa Murphy's for a take and bake pizza. Most of the top of that pizza landed on the floor of our kitchen later that evening just as I was pulling it out of the oven, as I had failed to secure the kitchen from Sydney and was desperately trying to keep her from touching the hot pizza or oven! Thankfully, the crust was fine and we had cheese in the fridge that I could melt quickly on to the original crust. I don't think the girls knew the difference - I did. 

Any how, London went to the doctor on Tuesday this week for her check-up. Here's where she stands: 

Height: 42 1/4" (90th Percentile)
Weight: 36 lbs 4 oz (50-75th percentile)

London also had to get two shots - MMR and DTAP. I warned her she would likely get a shot or two. The girl has my pain tolerance - or lack there of. But I didn't want to hide the idea from her as well. She was a brave little girl and only fussed a little - but she was a good listener and sat still as requested. I was not expecting the finger prick for the hemoglobin test. Again she did really well at listened with just a little fuss. But she got 3 stickers out of the deal too. Only issue, the reader showed a low hemoglobin count, so we had to go to a different part of the building to have some blood drawn to make sure she wasn't anemic. That was no fun. I felt so bad for London. The 3 pricks was more than we expected and now she had to have a 4th poke. Again she did better than I could have asked for. 

We went to the Disney store after the doctor's as a reward, where she picked up a new Sophia the First backpack. And daddy took her to get ice cream before picking up Sydney from daycare. The night was capped off with London getting to try on her birthday gifts from her grandma and grandpa - a Queen Elsa dress and Tiara. She couldn't stop smiling. 

In Disney milestones, it is now easier to name and count the rides London will not be able to go on during our next trip there. She won't be able to ride a whole whopping 2 rides in both parks! California Screamin' and Indiana Jones. I doubt she'll grow 4 inches in 4 months - otherwise we could check off Indiana Jones as well! We'll be bringing along her Queen Elsa dress during our next trip as well - London may or may not be getting to visit the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique. 

And we got the results back from the hemoglobin test - she was just below normal, with no flags. We're just going to try and get her to eat a little more meat and veggies from now on.

She also couldn't stop twirling in her dress!
