Stella's birthday post is finally up...CLICK HERE for some rainbow fun.
Anyway, they remembered it, so before bed on her 4th birthday Tom got to work.
This week we finally got Stella into the doctor for her check up (yes, I miss our peds in Arkansas) but we got through it :)
Our sweet girl is...
42 pounds...95th percentile weight
44 inches tall...97th percentile height
No shocker there. Stella towers over friends her age and even older. The doctor says she's on track to be 5'9, so we'll see.

My pumpkins. Emerson LOVED the pumpkin patch...she got such a kick out of it.
I LOVE fall and look forward to the pumpkin patch every year. I hope to make this family tradition. There are several pumpkin patches around here to choose from.

Meet the Fremont Troll in Seattle. A couple weeks ago Tom mentioned there was a big Troll under one of the Seattle bridges. For some reason (I'm pretty sure it's linked to Dora) this spiked Stella's interest. She was asking pretty regularly to go see the Troll. This is NOT what I pictured at all. I had no idea it was so huge. If I'm honest I probably pictured something more like the cartoon troll from Dora :)
Anyway, after a few VERY early mornings with Emerson...Tom let me go back to bed this morning and then ventured out with the girls to see the troll. Stella was a fan.
Stella has talked about the Troll all day. I'm sure we'll go back and Ill get to see it up close and personal.

The only thing that would've made this trip better was if Tom had been there.
I should note, I'm thankful it was only $1 today. The Space Needle is amazing and I'd love to go back, but there's no way I would pay $12 for Stella (at least at this age). She loved it, but we weren't there long enough to justify 12 bucks. However, it would be an incredible date night. There's office up top and place to just sit and chat. I'm sure I'll be back. There's no doubt the Space Needle is a big tourist attraction.
She still doesn't say much with words, but her expressions always tell a story. She understands everything we say, so I'm assuming she'll be talking non stop soon in the near future. She still only weighs 22 pounds and has the longest/skinniest little legs. She adores her sister (most of the time) and thinks her daddy hung the moon, I'm pretty sure she likes me, but I'm also the first person she wants to get mad at. We love you sweet Emerson...I can't believe you're already 20 months!

To say she was excited is a major understatement. My childhood best friend, Courtney, lives nearby and we've been attached at the hip since we moved here. Thankfully Court has a little girl, Piper, and her and Stella are best friends.
I'm sure this is the first of MANY sleepovers in their future.

I know it's just hair. I'm having fun with this. Stella normally just wants a clip in it, but i would take any tips :)
FYI, if she wants to cut it we're going to go for an inverted bob. I know it'll be cute.
