This little boy......is very proud today because he has finally hit the charts!!! We went in for a 10 month weight check and the scale said (drum roll please....) 17 pounds 2.3 ounces...that is a pound and a half gain from Sept. 30!!!! We are now, barely, on the charts in the 3rd percentile. He also grew a 1/2 inch so now he measures in at a whopping 27 inches long. That is in the 4.5 percentile. Although he is still small we are moving in the right direction and for the first time since he was 4 months old we are on the charts in both height and weight!!!
Now...since Tia Kay is here we decided to do a little bit of sightseeing today. After we finished up at the Drs. office we went to a little fruit stand called 'Robert Is Here'. They serve incredible milk shakes (or flavored ice cream because they are so thick) mixed with fruit from their stand. They have wonderful shakes with Key Lime..or you can also get Key Lime with Strawberries and many other varieties and different fruits. They also have a little farm in the back. Matthew actually enjoyed the Key Lime pie (that is what I got) and some of Seth and Tia's shakes. We were about to leave when we smelled this marvelous smell coming from this machine. When we looked over we realized that this machine was a juicer that was squeezing oranges and making orange juice. (I know, I know what else would a machine squeezing oranges make??? whiskey??? lol) Anyway, we asked if we could purchase some in the store and the guy asked us what size we wanted and we said 1/2 gallon and he proceeded to take a jug and fill it right there in front of our eyes with this freshly squeezed orange juice. Just drinking a little glass makes you feel healthier.
We came home and took a nap after all of that excitement and then got ready to go to South Beach for dinner. Tia Kay Kay loves the Kardashian sisters so we went to find their DASH store in Miami. Although we found a beautiful teal dress we didn't buy anything. I do not watch the show but Tia is obsessed with anything "dashion" and she said that the lady working in the store actually is on the reality show. The store worker kept going on and on about how Matthew is going to be trouble when he gets older. Then he sat down in the chair and started bouncing up and down to the music in the store. At one point I looked over and saw him moving his little bottom up and down to the beat of the music and it looked like he was doing some J Lo move. It was so funny!!! Tia Kay Kay was so excited to take her picture in front of the store.
