I had to post this pic! What silly kids...they truly look crazy in this particular photo. Okay, so let's not forget to update you on Miss Nadia as well. I have decided to pull her from Mom's Day Out. Last Wednesday I didn't even take her. We were on our way when Nadia began asking about her playgroup buddies...I then explained that she would be playing with her friends Pete and Maya at class and she just began sobbing and saying, "home, doctor, Amy's, Nana and Papaw's, shopping..." She clearly wanted to be anywhere but at Mom's Day Out. In addition to this, Nadia has shown some regression in leaving her in the daycare while I attend my Moms Club meetings when we were finally doing so well and she even cried a little when I left her with Amy a few days ago. Whenever we're out now she seems to have this fear that I'm leaving and clings to me. I'll never know if this is just a phase or something I created my pushing too hard but either way, she's clearly too young for Mom's Day Out. Jose and I figure it's a lot of money to spend when she doesn't even look forward to it. Also, I don't see a point in pushing something on her so young when it's not required. In a couple of years she'll have to go to preschool and she may cry then too but at least she'll be old enough to understand that Mami is coming back.

6 Month Well Visit
Sonia had her 6 month well visit last Tuesday. She weighed in at 15 pounds and 9 ounces with a length of 26 1/2 inches. (This is a whole 2 pounds more than Nadia at 6 months and she's just a half of inch longer.) Anyway, the doctor says she's average on weight and just above average in height. Sonia has also been prepping for crawling by rocking on all fours and has learned to get around, slowly, by crawling her legs up under her and then flopping down on her belly. Today, we took Sonia to the neurologist and she will be having an EEG on September 30 to further research her upper body tremors. The doctor doesn't believe that it's epilepsy, rather an infant "shudder" that looks like a seizure and that is outgrown but there will be an EEG to be certain. In the photo above, Nadia decided that Sonia couldn't have enough toys and just kept piling them up.
