It’s the Wednesday after Mothers Day and I’m just getting around to this post. It’s been a crazy week – poor Grady has the flu… He’s doing well, the Doctor says he can’t do anything for him, too young to give him medicine, but he is taking it like a champ! Other than that – the boys went for their 9 month checkup (even tho they are almost 10 months). Grady measures in at a measly 18lb, 12oz – 28 3/4 inches. Logan on the other hand is a whopping 20lb, 9oz and measures up 29 1/4 inches. It’s at the point where we can distinctly tell the difference holding each of them. Apparently they both have pumpkin heads – 18 1/2 inch circumference (90th percentile),
I am surprised those hats still fit them! I am kidding of course, the nurse said their head size was excellent – besides, how can I talk, they take after Dad!
Anyway – there’s the update on the boys – they are growing so fast, it seems like just yesterday we took them home from the hospital, but in reality there is only two months till their 1st birthday!
So back to the subject at hand – MOTHERS DAY! Laura’s first – and let me tell you, those boys LOVE their mother – they spoiled her! Pictured to the right is the gift they gave her, a gold heart pendant with two natural Rubies representing their birthstones. I tried to convince them that yellow gold was hard to come by, but they insisted that they love to pull on the yellow shiny things around Mom’s neck! Aside from the gift, the boys made their own mark on a card for Laura – which is contained below in the movie, which I showed Laura on Sunday after she opened the card. Let me just say this… don’t give babies markers.. just don’t! Seems like common sense, but apparently not to me. Its rather an amusing clip – check it out, you’ll see it is difficult to record, and monitor the marker usage – video quality is evident of this. We had a little picnic for Mothers day, both Grandmas and Great Grammy were honored, as well as Dana, Mya’s mom! The rest of our families showed up as well and everyone got some pictures and magnets of the boys recent photo shoot – it turned out to be beautiful weather and just a great day. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY Laura!
