Parties and Shots

We had an awesome time this past weekend. As you know Staci and the family visited with us which was great fun. And then we celebrated Kieras(Kit Kats bff) First birthday. She looked so big and grown up. Kate was not in the greatest of moods due to the lack of a nap. But she participated some what and celebrated her BFFs accomplishment of making it to the big 1. They shared many stories and Kate gave her much advice on being 1 and the responsibility that comes with that. Happy birthday Kiera!!
Today was another fun filled day. We started off with an awesome bible study and pedicures. Then the kids and I came home ate lunch and headed off to see doctor Garza. Jakob was so excited. He loves Dr. Garza and is such a great little patient. Kate was about 3 visits behind on her shots since we were in Insurance Limbo. Jakob was only 1 visit behind. Jakob is a whopping 35lbs and is 39 1/2 inches tall. In the 75th Percentile. Doc said he would most likely be over 6ft according to the chart. Well we kinda figured that much since is daddy is 6'1 and all of his grandpa was 6'2 and his uncle Dunk is 6'3 not to mention cousin Adam and Ryan who are over 6'5. It was inevitable.
Jakob was thrilled to see Dr. Garza. He listened to everything Doc said. And he couldn't stop talking. Doc said that he spoke especially well for his age.
Next was Katharine. She was not as excited to see the Doc but she did what she needed to do. She weighs a 21.5 lbs and is 30" tall. In the 40th percentile for her. But her Head circumference is 18.5 inches and in the 75th percentile. Which is great, big head = Big brain ;)

Both kids got caught up on their shots. Jakob was so brave. He got one shot in the leg. Kate got 4 shots, 2 in one leg, 1 in the other and 1 in her arm. She was not a happy camper. But surprisingly she only cried for a minute.
So that was our day. I will put pics from Kieras party on a new post. Its easier that way.
Have a great night!!
