Mercy's 15 months check-up and James's Lincoln Log Bunkhouse

This little cutie had her 15 month check-up today! It was pouring down rain and a horrible day to have her out but at least I was able to take her directly after dropping Grace off at Pre-school. I took her to Dr. Bradford at Carillion Hospital since I had been a little concerned about her not growing enough. She was only in the 5th percentile for height and weight on our last visit. This time she was in the 8th percentile for height and 5 percentile for weight. She only weighed 17 pounds, but her doctor said she is a perfectly healthy tiny girl that is built just like her mama:-). She did suggest that I start feeding her more high fat foods though. We really don't keep a lot of high calorie food in our house but I am going to start adding more real butter to her breads and get her some whole organic yogurt. She drinks organic whole milk from Krogers because I have yet to find a source of fresh farm milk! I am still looking for one though because I know the thick cream would be so good for her.

All bathed and ready for her check-up!
James and I built this tall bunkhouse last night
for his Playmobil knights to sleep in and use for their battles.
He was so excited about it!
 I love watching the way James play, He is SO cute!!!

Fun! Sy and James are so much alike! I love watching him play too, (when he doesn't know I am looking:) Glad to hear Mercy is healthy!
