Lovin' the growth...

Nothing says I love you like a doctor's visit, a shot and a blood draw right?

Of course, I am THAT mom who scheduled Dariya's 4 year check up for Valentine's Day (without realizing it).  The same mom who scheduled her son's orthodontist AND dentist appointment this same week AND Dariya's ENT follow up, tube and hearing check.  Seriously, what was I thinking?

Dariya did really well at her appointment (not a tear for her shot but oh the screaming and crying for being held down for the blood draw) and has grown by leaps and bounds.
She is now 35 pounds and 36 inches.
That is a gain of 6 pounds and 3 inches since coming home 7 months ago.

Nothing says love like a happy, healthy preschooler!  She continues to excel and show us just how smart she is each day.  Our pediatrician was so entranced with the girls she didn't want to move on to her next patient.  She is so happy that we brought Dariya home, she has seen first hand the amazing transformation that can happen when orphans are given a chance.

We showered the kids with hugs and smooches and hopefully enough chocolate to make up for the error of my ways.

Happy Valentine's Day to all!
