Madeleine is in the 95th percentile for height, and 50th percentiles for weight and head circumference. I need to get her a new car seat. The infant seat that she has is only rated up to 29 inches and she is very close, if not surpassing, that number (she gets her height measured every week and it always varies a little because they aren't too exact about it -- for instance, today at the pediatrician she was over 30 inches, and at clinic half an hour later she was 28 inches). I've been avoiding getting her a new seat because they are very expensive and because when she falls asleep in the car in her infant seat I can usually lug it inside while she stays asleep. I won't be able to do that with the next seat.

Her counts are very low, her ANC is at 140. She'll be back up to normal by next Tuesday though and then she will be all recovered from this round. Clinic took awhile today because we were waiting for her to pee. They were about to send me home with two handfuls of cotton balls, but she finally went. I'm glad because we've done the cotton ball thing before and it seems like we can never get enough for the specific test that they need it for.

New dump truck!

But she really just likes to eat the "dirt" it came with
