April came and went in a minute it felt like. I have a feeling that May is going to be the same way. Here's what we have been up to-
We had Jack's two year check up last week and sister tagged along for a follow-up hearing test. I was by myself so they greatly outnumbered me but we survived. Jack had a great check-up, he is growing and developing right on schedule. His height was 35.25 inches so if you double that as they say you can to determine their adult height he will be over six foot tall. He continues to be in the 95th percentile for height, 25th percentile for weight.
We rechecked Georgia's hearing because she did not pass her hearing screening at her four year checkup. She didn't pass this time either which was disappointing for us, I was really hoping she was having an off day and that there was nothing to worry about. She did have an ear infection with a ruptured ear drum about a month ago so she could still be healing. And she has had lots of ear problems since she was eight months old so it's possible her hearing could just be delayed. In her right ear she could not hear below 25 decibels. Her pediatrician wants to wait another six months and then if she is still struggling we will go see an audiologist. I'm praying her hearing is just delayed and she will catch up in the next five months.
Just a storm rolling in over some farmland on our way to town. I feel like I take for granted what a beautiful area we live in.
We went to my grandparent's house Wednesday evening and they had just got their garden tilled and planted. Of course these two had to go squish their toes in it!
And then he wanted to do some shirtless fishing with the big boys.
My biggest challenge every day is getting this boy inside when it gets dark. I love how full of life he is!
Last Friday Rachel and I headed to the Country Living Fair in Nashville. We started this tradition last year and hopefully we can do it for many years to come because it's such a fun day. We go to the fair in the morning and then after lunch we head to the outlet mall in Lebanon. This year we noticed the crowds had greatly increased! The word has gotten out I guess. We didn't find a whole lot because we're both cheap but we did find a few things :)
Some of the siblings took me out for a belated birthday dinner at Steamer. I just decided to celebrate the whole month of April.
So we got a little nervous that he had a broken nose after a rough fall outside but it looks like much better now and he was hardly phased by it. This boy will give me gray hair.
Georgia had the privilege of attending the school play with Daddy of Beauty and the Beast and then had her picture made with Belle herself after the show! She loved it and couldn't stop talking about Gaston and the Prince HA!
She went back to Daddy's classroom and colored a picture of Belle for Belle :)
Since Jack has officially started Aunt Kay's, we have had (still having) an adjustment period. He's had some behavior issues that we are still working on and his hardest thing is naptime because he doesn't understand why he's not in a crib by himself and he just wants to talk the whole time. Anyway, Friday he didn't have any trips to timeout so we rewarded ourselves with Sno Shack. I am a mom that is not above bribery with food.
This weekend we spent as much time as we could outside. Georgia's new fascination is worms. She was kissing this one. She loves them and packs them around all over the yard.
Our neighbor's grandson Carson is Jack's new buddy. Jack prayed for five people the other night with four being family members and the other was Carson. He thinks he hung the moon!
I am a proud mom and a proud plant mom. I received this knockout rose bush two years ago for Mother's Day and it's basically taken over the side of our house. I love this time of year when everything is in bloom.
There's a little catch up of the last few weeks for us. Time please slow down!
