Big Girl Bed

Megan’s first night was a success. Only problem was that she was up at 7am this morning knocking on her door.  Not a problem, she fell asleep with Dave in our bed.  I managed to escape and get much needed coffee around 830.  We are pretty sure she slept on her bed the entire night rather than on the floor.  She hasn’t quite grasped the concept of playing when she gets up yet so her room was still in order.  Hopefully in a few days she will play in her room as she did in her crib.

Once we get her room and closet redone we will post before and after shots for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

Accident update

Dave’s accident claim has been moving slow as molasses!!  I finally got to talk to our agent and she explained why.  Turns out the three people in the car each had injuries of their own.  I was told two broken noses and one had an intestinal laceration that required surgery.  However, they are all home and doing well now.  Our insurance company is waiting for the driver to call back with her statement.  Because the light was yellow for both parties it makes the claim more complicated.  Also Alabama has a contributory negligence law that states if both parties are found to contribute even 1% to the accident, both parties take care of their own.  Our insurance company is going to fight for the contributory negligence so we potentially won’t have to pay out for their injuries or car.  Hopefully we will hear sometime next week as to the final decision by our insurance company.

Thank You!!!

With the way Megan is growing, we are very thankful for all the clothing everyone has sent us over the months.  Whether hand me downs (which are AWESOME!!!) or new clothes.  We are finally getting to some of the super cute things we got over the last several months.

Also thankful it is shorts weather and we don’t need to worry about pant length.  Megan is in 18 month clothing for pants and 12-18 for tops.  Just got a bunch of 24/2T sleepers for her at the Tanner Outlets at Carters for a steal!!  I was so happy to find those.  Will be getting fleece sleepers once they hit Sams/Costco in October-ish.  She is pretty well set for the summer.  I am now looking into the Fall/Winter clothes that aren’t out yet.  Once they are out I will be buying 24/2T sizes.

Oh, and if anyone out there would like to loan/give their used clothing to Megan to get more use out of them, let me know!!!  I can always give them back in a few months if you want them back.  And there has not been one stain I haven’t been able to get out.  Good thing too, Megan would have a much smaller wardrobe 😀

Check up time!!

Megan had her 18 month check today and she grew 2 inches in the past 3 months!!!  She has grown faster in the past 3 months than she has in the past so it bumped her up to the 70th percentile for height.  She is still tracking steadily in the 15th percentile for weight.  Megan is also trying to mimic more and more sounds and words everyday.  Dave had french fries with dinner last night and he asked Megan if she wanted another french fry and Megan said “fra fra”!!!  No cuing or prompting from anyone, just all on her own.  And today she was trying to say a bunch of words and was getting them pretty close.  May not be too much longer before she has a varied vocabulary.  Some words would be nice!!!  The sign language is great but doesn’t work so well when I can’t see her.
