I also wanted to record this for myself:
Last week I took him for his 4 year old well child check-up and he did amazingly well. He weighed 40.5 lbs and was 42 inches tall. He's in the 75% for both height and weight. I guess they do BMI checks now and his was about 20% which is good for his age. (I still need to look into that more for the kids.) He had to get his blood pressure checked and the cuff was sooo small. He thought he was big stuff and was making the doctor laugh with all of his observations. He is a pretty funny kid even at 4 years old! Our doctor asked him to identify colors and he knew them all(he even knows turquoise thanks to big sis!), he was able to spell his first and last name. He can write it too! He was talking our doctor's ear off and showing off! He loves to "read" his books. He doesn't love to color pictures so much(my boy is SO different from my girl) but he is all about building with his legos. So I know those fine motor skills are in tip top shape. He has been bringing home his work from VPK and is doing a great job in school. His teacher tells me that he is really good at following directions and often uses him as an example for the other children. When I called her to say he would be missing school because he's sick she said that he's doing a wonderful job and won't get too far behind but she would still put a packet of work together for him to work on. I'm so proud of my big boy!
I just have to write this down too. I know this post is entirely too long and boring but if I don't write it down I'll forget it! I've pretty much forgotten what happened on Monday of this week!
While my mom was watching him yesterday she went out to the garage to help my dad with something. She said Max was playing with his legos and when she came back into the house, Max said "Gwam, what are you doing?" When she told him she was helping Papaw in the garage. He said very seriously, "Don't worry Gwam, I was in charge!" She told him that he was in charge in the house and that he was watching Lola(their dog) too!
He makes me smile and laugh out loud every single day.
Here's my sweet, smiling freckled boy with his little cousin Noah a couple of weekends ago. He loves him so much and even busts out with the silliest baby talk whenever Noah is around. Oh, the cuteness!!
I asked Emma what this was all about. In her sweet and innocent six year old way, she said her friend Brandon gave it to her. Oh my, her first little love note. Apparently, Brandon has been listening to a little too much Justin Bieber. Damian just about died when I told him about it! I guess Brandon is trying to earn points with Emma's mommy because it was his day on Friday to bring snacks for their class and he made sure to come by my classroom to see if I wanted an orange muffin and a juice box. It was a sweet gesture. But, oh dear, I am not ready for these growing up years!
Today is my "baby" sister's 30th Birthday!! Happy Birthday to the best sister, aunt, godmother, and friend! We love you "Aunt" Brooke! There will be many pics to come of her big birthday celebration with the entire family. Today is also my Father in-law's and nephew Aaron's 24th birthday. What a very special day!!
Also, last week I was a little MIA, but I totally missed posting pics from my awesome hubby's 34th birthday on the 14th! I might get around to doing that soon!

Make sure you have a cute six year old assistant who loves to help!! :)
Here is one of our first family photos at home. Boy do we look tired! Welcome to new parenthood! We thought we were exhausted then but having two kids, working full time, driving here, there, and everywhere to take the kids to their many activities is so much more exhausting than those first few months. Although I am so thankful I have kids who have always been such good sleepers!
It's so much fun to take a walk down memory lane!
I'm linking up with Cheryl at Twinfatuation this week!

She is pretty excited about a sleepover with her cousins this weekend. She also has a loose top front tooth that she is both excited and nervous about falling out!
