Kiddo update

Oh, I get so behind on blogging!

An update on the girls...
They are both doing good. Taylor had a cold about a week and a half ago, and then we all had it! It went from Tay to me and we quickly got better, but Ella and Scott are still fighting it. As much as we begged Tay to "keep your hands off your sister!!", it just didn't work! Tay just loves her too much! :)

Ella went in for her 4 month check up a couple of weeks ago & Tay had her 3 year check up. Tay is so funny because she loves to go to the doctor. She's always telling her baby dolls they have to go to the doctor. And, if she gets the tiniest guessed it, she "needs to go to the doctor"!

So, the funniest part of the doctor visit was the weigh-in...generally, not a "funny" part of my doctor visits! But, Taylor weighed in a 26 lb. 6 oz. and my sweet Ella...15 lb. 13 oz.! Taylor is in the 5th percentile for weight and less than 5th percentile for height. Ella, on the other hand, is in the 90th percentile for height AND weight! What a contrast these two are! I get a kick out of Scott folding clothes and holding a shirt up and saying "Is this Taylor's or Ella's?!?". Truly, it's hard to tell sometimes! :) I took Ella to the doctor again last Friday because of her stuffy nose & she was already up to 16 lb. 3 or 6 oz....the girl gains fast! It had just been 9 days since she was weighed in previously.

We've gotten down the exersaucer from the attic for Ella and she LOVES playing in it. I'll have to post a picture this week. She sits up really well, with assistance of course, but she still hasn't rolled over! She's just not happy laying on her play mat for more than a few minutes.

I took Taylor to Cottage Hill Baptist last week to sign up for Mom's Day Out. I think she'll enjoy it, but it will take her going a few times before she feels comfortable. She enjoyed playing in the play area while I filled out paperwork and then we went to see her "classroom". The 2 teachers seemed great, but the kids in the class were so much bigger than Taylor. Really, they were a lot bigger & the teacher even mentioned something about Taylor being so petite! She'll be going to MDO on Thursdays from 10-2 and Meredith will be taking her there & I'll pick her up after work. Another concern of mine is that Tay typically goes down for a nap between 12-1...I'm just hoping Tay can hang out 'til 2 and then take a nap when we get home.

That's about it, for now. I think about blogging all the time, but just don't get around to doing it. But, some of the things that come out of Taylor's mouth just crack me up and I think "I need to put that in the blog!". But, now as I sit here typing, I just can't think of anything in particular! One thing she did do last week...She's always saying, "Watch, Mama. WATCH!" So, I look up and she's dancing (shaking her behind!) and I ask "Where did you learn those moves?!?" and she quickly replies, "I learned it in SUNDAY SCHOOL!!" Hmm...I don't think so!

Have a great week y'all!!

Graham goes to MDO on Thursdays too at Cottage Hill! He does fine waiting on a nap until 2. He could never make it at home that long, but he seems to be happy at school.

Maybe we can get together sometime soon!
