A few quick updates

I am the worst blogger around lately. I've been keeping you all in the dark about the following important pieces of info:
  1. Caroline had her 4 month appointment and she is back on the growth curve! 23.5 inches (25th percentile), 11 lbs 6 oz (10th percentile), something-or-other for her head (50th percentile... I had the mumbly nurse and couldn't understand her). We also had a GI appointment in preparation for leaving for the summer, and they decided that even though she's back on the curve and doing well, we're going to keep her on the high-cal bottles.
  2. Latest developments: she's rolling both ways, laughing, and putting everything into her mouth. Including her feet, which makes diaper changes rather challenging. I also just put all her newborn and 3-month clothes away and got a little choked up over her teeny tiny sleepers. Here she is, with her funny patchy hair, at the pool a couple weeks ago:
  1. We're leaving in a week for North Dakota and we won't be back until mid-August. If you've been reading for awhile, you know that Tyler is a grad student in paleontology and he does his field work out there. This year Caroline and I will be accompanying him. We're renting a house down the street from where Tyler's parents live. I'm excited to spend time with my sister-in-law and my two nieces, since I have zero mommy friends here.
  2. #3 means, of course, that this summer I will be even more of a slacker blogger than I usually am. We'll have internet at the in-laws' house, but otherwise we'll have no access to technology. Cell phones don't even work out there!
I want to write a longer and more fun post about my newest obsession (cloth diapering!) but I'm too tired tonight. Hopefully I will get to it tomorrow-- just wanted to post a couple of updates and let you all know that I am still alive and kicking.

I am, of course, not at all happy that you are leaving us for the entire summer. The rave won't be the same.
