Week Wrap Up

Addison had her one year check-up at the pediatrician this week and took her very first steps today. I think four wobbly steps is the record and she is still pretty cautious but it is so cute and exciting to witness this latest milestone. She is 19 lbs 10.5 oz and 45cm long placing her in about the 25% for weight and 75% for height. She had to get three shots but was so well behaved through the entire exam and the Dr. thought she looked just great.
Jameson had his 4Th Grade musical this past week-a production of Frog and Toad. Despite only having a small role in the "Lizard Chorus" he loved being part of the Drama Club. He thought he he was a star and was honored to receive a special "solo" as he interpreted it, where he walked across the stage holding a sign introducing the next scene. It was so cute and even if drama won't be his thing, I'm glad he gave it his best and had fun along the way. The celebratory icecream after the show made it even more worthwile for him! Both grandmothers were able to make the show on different night while both grandfathers watched the girls at home. Aren't we lucky to have such helpful and involved grandparents?
Today both boys had soccer games, the girls had a birthday party, then we all did some yard work trying to beautify the place before the rain moved in this afternoon. After naps we all went to visit my grandmother to wish her a "Happy (early) Mother's Day" then we went out for Mexican food. Despite an hour wait the kids where really well behaved and all enjoyed the spicy salsa.
