15 month check ups and life.

So the girls went for their 15 month check ups yesterday. (3 weeks late, but whose counting) They weighed exactly the same (21.8 lbs.) and she measured them as Paige was a 1/4 inch taller but I don't know about that as they were pretty squirmy. (Rachael at 32 1/4 inches and Paige a quarter inch taller) I'll have to try to measure them here. Man the time goes so fast. Their not babies anymore. They are toddlers now, with opinions!! They have also decided that they do not like to share a lap. They try to push the other off when they are having to share a lap. I try to give them plenty of alone lap time, but it doesn't seem to matter!! Oh well, this too shall pass.

Starting to work with Tyson a little on his letters. He can say the alphabet, but doesn't know his letters by sight yet. I'm not pushing it by any means, just trying ways to make it fun and a game to help a little. He doesn't have as much interest as Blake did when he was this age in art and letters and numbers and such. Learning more about my children everyday and how different they are. Let's celebrate that.

Blake has 3 more days left of SK. Where has the year gone. He seems to be excited to start grade 1. We will see when the time comes. He really doesn't like new things and change. Don't get me wrong he is getting better but it takes him some time getting settled into a new routine. Looking forward to having the summer to spend together!!

What to do with all that art? (again)

Well it looks like I accidentally erased my last post so here goes again. Blake is now 5 so you can imagine all the art we have collected over the years. I don't have the heart to get rid of most of it. So I have come across an idea that I think I am going to try. It was to scan in or take pictures of the art then make a slide show out of it. I think I will try this and take pictures of Blake with some of the art. Kind of a documentation of him as well. I'm going to hopefully try this soon as the end of his school year is coming up and then try to do this yearly after this. I will try to do this for Tyson, Rachael and Paige as well. I'm going to invest in a good slide show software as I also like to do a yearly photo slide show as well for Father's day. We'll see how this all turns out.

On another note Rachael was giving good night kisses out to everyone last night. It was so cute to watch her go back and forth between the boys sticking her little bum out as she leaned in for a kiss. The boys also thought it was so cute and kept calling her back to them.
