I only planned on playing the music with the player out of sight, but as soon as Sadie heard it she started to smile and frantically looked around to try and find where the music was coming from. I finally caved and let her have it (it took all of five seconds). She was delighted. She played with it for a while and then held it up to her ear and fell asleep. The best part of the player is that it is designed so it can't go up too loud and be harmful to little ears. It entertained her for the rest of the trip when she was awake, and she held it when she was in the doctor's office (where there were lots of tears).
Sadie weighed in yesterday at just under 21 lbs (which puts her around the 60th percentile for weight) and at 33 inches (which puts her in the 99th percentile for height). I can't believe how tall she's getting. I had noticed that her pants were getting shorter, but I really thought that the growth spurts had slowed down.
When we got to the hotel we had just enough time to run down and take a quick swim in the pool and this time Sadie loved it (last time she wasn't totally sure about it, although I did get a few giggles). This time she laughed hysterically for the entire ten minutes, and kept pointing at the pool when we had to get out to go to a family function. Hopefully it will warm up enough to go again today!
