The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

This was a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn't resist posting these pictures.  She just was not having a good day.  I think it was one of the days she woke up at an ungodly hour and she was a complete grump... all day long.

We all have days like this, don't we?

Be sure and click on the pictures to enlarge them, so you can see her expressions!


My personal favorite






And on a totally NOT terrible, horrible, no good, very bad note...

I took Marissa to her Pediatrician yesterday for her 2 yr appt (only 2 1/2 months late... don't judge!  :)  She is 27.5 lbs and 34 inches.  This puts her in the 50th percentile for both her weight and height!!  She is right where she needs to be!!!  

This time last year, she wasn't even on the charts for either weight or height.  In fact, she had never been on the charts.  Not even for a minute.  It wasn't until July of last year that she finally made it onto the growth charts.  And even then, she was hanging onto the chart by her little fingernails, in the 5th percentile.

This is huge!   Way to grow Baby Girl!    :)

Woohoo for the 50th %!! That is awesome. I love how you say she was hanging on by her fingernails.lol.
I have to agree, my fav is the one you like too. She just looks like she can't take anymore...lol. I'm sure I shouldn't be giggling, but it does tickle me. How can they have such drama at such an early age???

LOL....the pictures are SO expressive...you can almost hear her crying and being upset at you and the whole world! It's like she's saying..."Not only am I having a bad day...but now you have to take pictures of me having a bad day! Well fine!! May the bird of Paradise fly overhead and POOP on you Mommy!!!! LOL...she is really so precious! And SO expressive....love you guys...and the pitures..lol

Great pictures! She shows her moods so well! Wouldn't it be nice to be able to show how you feel like that? Adults have horrible days too, but we have been taught to keep it under control! That's no fun! Marissa has the right idea...get it out and show everyone how terrible you feel!

Great news on her height and weight! Yay! I love great news!
