Here's what we have been up to:
This past weekend Gramz came down and spent the weekend with us. We played A LOT, ate a lot, and slept a lot. It was pretty awesome!
On Monday we had our 15 month check up at our pediatrician's office. We got two shots this time, will get one at 18 months, and then we will be done for quite a while - whew! Si didn't come with to the visit, and he is NEVER getting out of going again! It sucks to have to be the one to hold down both screaming girls while they are getting shots! What crap! He is never not going again- PERIOD!
Other than the shots, the appointment went well. The girls are growing like little weeds! Here are their stats:
Miss Olivia - AKA Baby A
Height - 32 inches - 92nd percentile
Weight - 26 lbs 13 oz - 93rd percentile
Miss Brianna - AKA Baby B
Height - 32.5 inches - 95th percentile
Weight - 27 lbs 2 oz - 95th percentile
Both girls seem to be on target developmentally; however, due to my apparent negligence, they did not meet two of their developmental milestones. 1 - they can not color scribbles (they only want to eat the crayons...they have NO interest in coloring), and 2 - they can not build blocks on top of each other. (This is probably mostly my fault as I didn't even break out the blocks until after Christmas, and they weren't really interested in building with them - they only wanted to tear my creations down!)
Anyhow, we have since reversed both (negative) findings...the girls can color in scribbles if you
And just as a sidenote; why don't they give you the list of developmental milestones they want you to hit by your next pediatrician visit before you leave your current visit?? You know, so you KNOW what to work on with your children... or am I just an awful momma who should be scouring some source on the internet for these milestones so I can make sure that my girls actually reach them? Did you all know the milestones your kiddos were supposed to meet by each timepoint? Am I really a slacker momma?! (It's okay if the answer is yes, I just need to know that!)
Anywho...moving on....what else happened in the last week or so?
The girls finally got their new car seats...we decided on the Britax Boulevard 70 CS in Cowmooflague =). Good thing, because we had officially outgrown our old ones as of Monday - 32" and 35 lbs was the max on our snugride 35's!
The Christmas tree came down, and in its place went our little reading cocoon chairs (which we LOVE!). We are obsesesd with reading! I love that they love it so much!!!
We had a playdate with our local MoM's group at PE 101 on Tuesday. That was AWESOME! I don't know if that is a local chain or a national chain, but I have to tell you, this place rocked! It had a large foam pit (think big ball pit, except large foam blocks instead), a big trampoline built into the floor, big balls, hula hoops, a big open dance floor, a zip line, mats to tumble on, all kinds of stuff!! I wish I could post pictures, but I only took them on my phone and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get pics from my phone onto my blog. You will just have to imagine the awesomeness =). The girls haven't played that hard EVER. Their favorite thing by far was the foam pit, although Bri loved having so much space to run wild. They kept jumping into the foam pit and getting back out and jumping back in again, and just giggling! It was a perfect playdate! We will definitely be going back!
So that's what we have been up to over the last week. Have you guys been this busy too?! Sheesh!
Until next time -
