(from Ro) Well, it's been almost 12 weeks since I took my leave of absence, so it's time to get back to work. That also means that Radha is going to start child care next week. Luckily, with Terri's schedule and some help from my Mom, she will be going for only two days a week. Still, it's definitely going to be a tough transition for all of us. I'm going to miss my morning walks with Radha, and all of the unstructured time we've had together. But on the other hand, now she's almost 5 months old, and I feel really good about where she's at developmentally. Since I can't stay home until she's ready for preschool, now's a good a time as any to start her in child care. We went to our child care facility yesterday, and had a nice time visiting with the director and Radha's "teacher". And, we got to see one of Radha's friends (son of good friends of Terri and I), who will be in the same room as her.
This week, we also went to a slightly delayed 4 month check up. She's doing great, and handled the vaccinations as well as can be expected. For you statisticians out there, she's now 15lbs and 2 oz, and 26 inches tall. She's ready for the next car seat already!
