Exploring the City

This last weekend we took Myrna on a "hike" up Schlossberg. Ok, it wasn't really a hike, more like a nice walk. Sadly we didn't go to the very top, since that involved lots of steep stairs, and when you have a baby attached to you, you're a little more hesitant. But we did get some great views of the Altstadt.

We are slowly acquainting ourselves with our new city. One of the first things we had to do was find a Kinderartz for Myrna. She had her first appointment this week. For the first time since March, she got weighed, and she now clocks in at a very respectable 6025 gms (or 13 lbs 4.5 oz) - that's way bigger than a newborn, and getting close to three times her birth weight. She's 64 cm (25.2 in) long, which actually puts her on the growth chart. She had lots of fun smiling at the doctor and nurse. The shots even weren't that bad; by the time we picked her up she had stopped crying. This was a much better reaction than last time in Bellevue. Perhaps German shots are more gentle than those in the US (a study I will not be a subject in). She's now out of her newborn onesies (into 3 month) and rocking some 6 month clothes. If you look real closely you might see a chubby leg on the girl.

More pics are (as usual) on this month's picassa page.
