A Busy Day


Well, yesterday was a busy day to say the least. I went to work, as usual, after getting all 3 children up extra early to bathe and fix hair and get dressed for SCHOOL PICTURES!!!! I know normally school pictures aren't really a big deal, but b/c I have yet to have any "professional"p portraits made of my children (besides school and church pictures) I am always hoping they will turn out great! So I dressed them all in light blue and off they went. I had a meeting, so I couldn't be there like I wanted to be, to make sure everything went just right (I am kind of a picture snob - I don't like any props or waterfalls or any of the like in my pictures - just a traditional background and my child!!!) There teachers said they did great, when it was time for all 3 to be in a picture together, they said that Henderson was really flirting with the camera - he wouldn't stop smiling, but Wilson (being 2) was being stubborn and they could hardly get the little man to smile, but finally he did (so they say), and Emma Claire had her fake, cheesy smile plastered on her face! Emma Claire did mention at some point that she was a pretty bride!!??? And I said you were what????? "It was my wedding" Apparently she was holding some kind of umbrella and standing by some sort of "column" in some of the pictures - Lord help us, We'll just have to see when they get back, if they're terrible, I'll order the minimum amount, if they're great, I'll order alot - maybe the one with all 3 children will be good enough for a Christmas card!!!

A good example of EC's cheesy smile and Wilson "zoning out"



After school I took Emma Claire to her ballet class, then the fun began. Wilson and Emma Claire had their 2 year and 4 year old check ups. I took Wilson and Henderson and then Will's mom, Di Anna brought EC after her dance class was over. It was a busy day at the Ped. office and the doctor didn't come in for like an hour. Then he finally came and spent a whole hour with us! Here are the stats:



Emma Claire:



Height: 40 1/2" (55%)



Weight: 36# (55%)



So she's pretty average!!!!



Wilson:



Height: can't remember, but 20%



Weight: 22# (minus 5%)



Head: can't remember, but 10%



So he's improving on height and head, but still at his own rate with the weight! But the good news was our Pediatrician, who like I have said before, I LOVE and IS AWESOME and THE BEST did not freak out like I thought he would! We are just to continue trying hard, offering Pedia Sure, giving vitamins - he didn't even seem to mind that Wilson still takes a bottle twice a day - that's the only way to ensure he gets ALL his whole milk in!!!!



Wilson does have fluid behind one ear (we have tubes still {the good news} one is working, one is not) and he is on an antibiotic. Also, the VSD heart murmur that he had as a newborn, that we saw a cardiologist for (that said it had closed by the way) is still there, so we have to follow up with our cardiologist at UAB soon. Wilson got 2 shots (hep. A and flu) and Emma Claire got 5!!!!!!



5 shots ????- I don't want 5 shots and I'm not afraid of needles!!! Bless her heart she was pretty sore last night and this morning. She has a field trip to the hospital today, so on one hand - lots of walking on sore legs, but on the other hand, she'll have a great time telling everyone about her doctor's visit and her shots and what a BIG GIRL she was - she didn't cry unitil the 4th shot - she was trying soooo hard! It was actually quite humorous - the sweet nurse told her to blow out when the needle was going in and you would have thought she was having a baby - she was blowing out so hard!!!! =)

Henderson was a jewel, he even fell asleep in his grandmother's arms! Thank you Di Anna for all your help - I couldn't have handled it without you and (m&m's of course)!!!



Well, 2 1/2 hours later we left the office and went home for the night (thank goodness we had no more activities for that day!!!)

Kellie, Yesterday was picture day for us too! :) We dolled up too.. just in case. I asked her if she smiled and she said "no" which is really a good thing because her fake smile is not so cute! :) I can't wait to see yours... we'll have to compare!

Kellie, I am glad I'm not the only one that gives a bottle to ensure their child gets enough whole milk. Gotta do what'cha gotta do right! We go for our 15 month today. I will post stats on my blog later. Have a good day!

Tyson (my dog) weighs more than Wilson. And he's 4 months old. That's scary. :) I hope I get to see you this weekend! Love you lots!!!
