Caley girl turned 2 on Monday! We can't believe it's already been 2 years, the time has gone by so fast. She is so smart and nice (most of the time), and such a joy in our lives. Her language is especially taking off. Lately she's started saying, "Ready, set, go" and "I see blue car" and "Blue doggie night-night." She's also using a lot of describing words in new situations like "slippy" (slippery) when we're outside and it's icy, and "heavy" when she carrying something big.
For her birthday we had a little party with the Gerlach side on Sunday. I made a bee hive cake and the living room was decked out in black and yellow streamers. We all ate chili and cornbread as well. She had lots of fun playing with her many cousins. The guys went to a Sonics game afterward while Bill's sisters, mom, and I stayed home with the kids, ate popcorn and played Scattergories. It was really fun. We love being able to host people at our house, and it shows again how blessed we are to live here! Thanks Mom and Dad Bales!
Caley went to her 2-year well-child appointment and she weighed in at 24 pounds, and overall is in the 20% for her height and weight. So she's starting to level out more against her peers. She got a flu shot and a Hepatitis A immunization (just as a precaution, she's not necessarily at risk for it) and the doctor said she was beautiful and just great! We don't have to go back for another year (although we will visit again when Gerlach #2 arrives).
Speaking of whom, we're almost done with the first trimester and the baby is now about 1.5 inches long and the size of a fig. I can't feel him/her move yet, but my belly is starting to get more round (probably not just from the baby, haha). Next week we get to have another ultrasound so stay tuned.
