Emily's Three Year Stats

Emily is perfect.  She is small and light, despite the size of her belly and just perfect.  
Height: 37.25 inches (54%)
Weight: 28 lbs, 2 ounces (22%)
BMI: 9%  (well, ok she's little)

She is doing just fine.  Big news, she didn't cry at the doctors office.  This is big news.  She even announced that morning that she would only cry when the doctor checked her ears... but she didn't!

Happy Birthday Emily!

Emily is 3!  Wow, that's so exciting.  We celebrated by going to Magic Wings, the butterfly conservatory.  Emily wore her butterfly clothes which is cute, right?  Butterfly pants and a butterfly shirt.  Adorable.  It's funny, this place just sucks the life out of you.  It hot, humid and there is gentle music playing and you are supposed to move slowly and be quiet...  
Once Emily got over being terrified of the butterflies she was curious.  We had a great time, we did a scavenger hunt and looked for pink and purple butterflies (there is one that has a bit of purple on it).  
 We had lunch at a restaurant.  EVERYONE took a nap and we had pizza and ice cream.  

 Oh and there were presents!  If she's seen you in the past few days she has told you that she got a bike for her birthday. She's asked to ride it every day.  She's quite good at riding it.  It's fair to say she loves her new bike.
 She's also a huge fan of her Elsa and Anna watch.

Eat My Words

There is loads of gross illness going around our town.  Kids are out of school for a week, fever, chills, strep.  And what did I do last week and the week before?  Boast about how my kids haven't been sick all winter.  Yep, I did this.  Damn it.

So this kid comes home from school this week and gets his two blankets and lays down in the living room and falls the heck to sleep.  WHAT?  Who is this kid?  I thought it was funny.  Until I woke him up and told him to go watch tv and after 2 shows called them up for dinner when he fell apart.  Sobbing and crying about how his day was 'too full'... oh crap...
 So, as you would suspect, he's sick.  And I've never seen him like this before.  He's always been a kid who powers through his colds.  Who doesn't lay around watching tv.  He is simply too tired to argue and too tired to fight... it's been quite lovely actually.
So while he's been falling asleep every day around 4 at random spots in our house (here he is sleeping in our bed...) and he's laying around, in bed, on couches etc, he's obviously feeling sick because he's not arguing with me about much.  Though I think he's starting to feel a little better because he was yelling at Emily at lunchtime...  Poor thing
