Well as much as I loved having my Christmas decorations up, I was so ready to take them down and put up Valentine's decorations. Now that I have kids I like to decorate for EVERYTHING. I don't go all out and actually try to make most of my decorations. So here are a few pics of what we have out for V-Day. I couldn't put out our candy bowl yet because all of us would eat it up so the candy will not be bought until the week of (more like the day before).
I took Caroline to the doctor on Monday (the day she turned 19 months old) for her 18 month check up. She is doing wonderfully and growing up right before our eyes!
Weight: 26 lbs 14 oz - 75-90%
Length: 34 3/4" - Above 97% (did anyone expect anything less?!?)
Head: 18 3/4" - 75%
She is like a little parrot now and can say SO MANY words and truly loves to copy whatever Luke is doing. They are playing together better and better although Luke still tries to get attention good or bad if they are together. We rejoined our playgroup we used to be in so that we can make Caroline her own little friends and Luke can reconnect with some old friends and make new one's as well.
Luke is doing great and really LOVES school now. We have decided to put him in preschool 3 days a week next year and Caroline 2 days a week in MDO. I have been taking the kids to a nature outing on Wednesday mornings where the topics vary - todays was nature sounds and they get a little tutorial on the topic, story time, we sing a couple of songs, make a craft and then go on a nature walk. The place is incredible!!! It takes place at a log cabin that was built in 1932 and once you are there you do not feel like you are even in Houston anymore.
Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile... we are all doing great, but staying really busy.
