I took Baylee and Owen in for well-child checkups today. Baylee had to get shots this time and Owen didn't. Baylee wasn't too excited about it, but she was super brave and hardly even cried.
Baylee is 32 lbs her weight is in the 19th percentile.
Her height is 3'3.5" in the 34th percentile.
Owen is 26 lbs his weight is in the 50th percentile.
His height is 33" in the 51st percentile.
The Doctor noticed today that both kids have heart murmurs. She doesn't think it's anything to worry about, but she wants them to both have an echo done just to make sure everything is fine.
I took a couple of pictures of the kids in their new Sunday Christmas outfits yesterday.
I may be biased, but I think they are pretty stinking cute!
Baylee 4 years
Owen 18 months
Owen has been learning new words like crazy lately! It amazes me how much he can say! He has started saying up, apple, shoes, sock, snacks, treats, I want some (sounds like "I tum").
He loves to buckle the buckles on his highchair. He will say to me "Buckle!" then when he want's to do it again "Unbuckle!" It can keep him busy for hours.
He hates to wear a bib while he eats. He always tears his bib off.
He learned how to sign and say "sorry" it is the cutest thing!
He can spit in the sink when we finish brushing his teeth. It's pretty cute!
He loves dogs and basketball hoops. At church when we sit in the overflow he points up and screams at the hoop. Yesterday at church I pulled out a book with some dog pictures in it and he started screaming "Dog! A Dog!" I had to put the book away because he wouldn't stop.
Owen is now officially in nursery. I'm his nursery leader though so he's been coming since he was about 15 months. He loves playing with the kids and they love him back! Yesterday he went up to a little boy that is his age and he gave him a big long hug! The little boy just stood there like he didn't know what to do. It was so sweet!
Baylee has been lots of fun lately. She is so smart and knows just what she wants. She's pretty stubborn about it too! A couple of weeks ago I was getting ready to go to work and the kids were playing upstairs in their room. I noticed Baylee carrying a toy out of her room and she came and set it down in my room. Owen was right behind her following the toy. When she set it down he stopped to play with it. Then Baylee hurried back to their room and hurried and shut the door behind her. I guess she wanted to play in their room by herself! She used to just push him out of the room and shut the door, so I thought it was an improvement for her to lure him out!
One day Baylee wanted some Frosted Mini-Wheats for breakfast I gave them to her then a little while later she left the table and I noticed they were still sitting there. When I looked at them closer I noticed that she had chewed the frosting off of all of them and then didn't eat anything else!
One day Baylee had a doll she was trying to keep out of Owen's reach. She set it up on a chair then she walked over to Owen and grabbed his hand and held it up in the air. Then she took her hand and measured from where Owen could reach over to the chair. Just to make sure it was really out of his reach!
A few funny things Baylee has sad lately:
One day at preschool they walked down to a playground to play. Baylee told me that she had to walk for 100 days to get to the playground.
Baylee: "Am I going to get a new mom?"
Me: "Why would you get a new mom?"
Baylee: "Cause your too old."
We had a big bag of books we checked out from the library. Mark was going to read Baylee a bed time story so she dragged the books over to him and says, "Boy-o-boy I must have drank a lot of milk!"
Baylee's favorite colors are pink, brown, black, and white.
One day I made Baylee some french toast for breakfast and she was getting pretty frustrated with it because it wouldn't stay on her fork when she tried to eat it. She said to me, "Mommy, this bread keeps falling of my fork! It isn't telling the truth!" She tried it again and it fell again, "Now this isn't telling the truth!"
Don't you just hate dishonest french toast?
Baylee can be quite the toilet paper waster. Mark started telling her to only use 3 squares of toilet paper and she's pretty particular that it is exactly 3 perfect squares of toilet paper. One day after she had gone potty I handed her her 3 squares and she says, "Mommy, I actually use 4 squares now." I guess she decided she needed 4 cause she is a 4-year-old now.
Mark's mom came over to our house the other day and Mark had made some dinner. Mark's mom asked Baylee who is the better cook out of mommy and daddy. Baylee thought for a minute then she goes, "Daddy is the best at eggs and mommy is the best at everything else!"
Mark does make a good egg!
One night Baylee was having oatmeal for a bedtime snack. Mark blew Baylee a goodnight kiss and Baylee pretended to catch it. Mark walked upstairs and Baylee goes, "I put it in my oatmeal!"
