Keslie went in for her 18 month check up yesterday! She is 23 lbs 7 oz and is 32 1/2 inches long. She got two shots (or pinches as Anika would say) and a finger prick. She's low on iron but the good news is that she did NOT have an ear infection! Happy day - no tubes for this girl! That was her appt. in a nutshell. She was so cute sitting on the table in her diaper! She's thinned out a lot but still has just enough pudge to make you wanna squeeze her! She is growing up way to fast - the past year and a half has flown by! I love this picture of her looking at Nana W.- she was always so alert and smiley. Probably because she was the size of a 3 month old when she was born! =)
So - today I was making some cookies for a baby shower tonight and I put the egg shells in a cake mix box to throw away. About an hour later I looked over at the table and saw Keslie holding an eggshell like a cup and drinking from it! NICE! I know I caught her pretty early - but sheesh! I hope she doesn't get sick!
Anika has had a blast today because she had friends over. They played like crazy! Her new word that she uses all the time is SPECIAL. This morning she was telling me that I shouldn't get mad at her because she is my very special girl. Then the other day she was playing with her fruit snacks and I asked her if I could have one and she said "You can't have this one because it is already special to me, but you can have this one because it's not special to me yet". She's definitely a keeper. =)
Nathan's been pretty stoked about school today because it was VENDOR day! That is when they get all sorts of free samples - toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss - you name it! It couldn't have come at a better time because we just ran out of toothpaste. =) Nathan's second year is almost over! He has one more big test and then in July he will take the boards. I know he will do great - he works so hard and it always pays off. He's BRILLIANT! He's pretty excited to start his 3rd year and get to work on real people! Up to now he's been doing the different procedures on a fake set of teeth. He just did his first root canal last week! He really liked doing it but I don't think he will decide to become an endodontist. =) I don't know how he does it! He's an above average student and an above average dad and an above average husband. You'd think he'd be falling behind in at least one of those areas but he's not! I'm just really lucky and felt like he deserved a minute of bragging. He will be embarrassed! Oh well!
