5 Year Appointment

Michael had his 5 year appointment today. Here's the report:
Height: 45 inches
Weight: 49 pounds
BMI: 17
About 85th percentile overall. She said he is in the "at-risk" category for weight, but we already knew that. He is NOT in the "overweight" category, and that made me feel more at ease. He certainly doesn't look it to me, but he is mine.
BP: 90/62
Both eyes: 20/20
Ears: passed all levels
Tubes: working their way out
no concerns for him at all
To quote the doctor, "This is the best handwriting I have ever seen from a 5 year old . . . really." We'll see if that continues in his life! Neither Mom or Dad have super handwriting! He was very talkative, open, curious, and fun. We had a great time. NO SHOTS TODAY! That was super exciting!

Just for Courtney

Michael is 5 today! I just can't believe it has been that long . . . certainly has flown by. He is currently taking swimming lessons, which are a hoot to watch. We registered him for Kindergarten. It is all happening so fast! But, he is ready. He is a total sponge, just loves to learn and do. I have high hopes for next year. I think he is going to completely love school.

Cayden is 2.5! It is amazing how different these two boys are. Cayden is FIERCELY independent. With Michael we were never sure when he was ready to do something, like dress himself. With Cayden, he wants to do it all himself. And if he can't---oh the temper! He thinks he is the same age as Michael and wants to do exactly as his brother. We are pretty certain we will be able to say goodbye to diapers this summer. He is the only child in his class trying underwear so he is spending time in the class above his age. Oh how we look forward to that day!

Us . . . we celebrated our 7th anniversary in April. While the stress of the two houses has been crazy, we are blessed to be very happy with one another, very in love.

Please keep the prayers for the house coming!
