If You Guessed 13 Pounds, 2 Ounces...

you win! Isla had her 4 month appointment today. Besides the 13 pounds 2 ounces she weighed, she measured 25" long and her head came in at 15.5 cm. Dr. Benuck was very pleased with her progress and gave us the green light to start feeding her baby food. Here she is on the exam table (before the shots):

Had she known she was about to get a shot in each thigh, I doubt she would have been this excited before. Putting her feet up in the air and rolling around on her back is her new favorite move.
On Sunday, we met the Murphy's over in Lincoln Square for Mayfest. Back before we had kids, this was an annual outing that included the celebration of our not-so German heritage with quite a few German beers. Times have changed, so our trip to Mayfest this year was a quick walk through the festival and deciding it was too crowded for the six of us. We opted for a few appetizers and a beer at a neighboring bar's patio. We didn't take a picture at Mayfest or at the bar, but we did get a few commemorating Isla's first trip on the "L." She seemed to like the train and was really enjoying looking out of the windows.
