Well Checks

I took Jake and Nathan to see the doctor for their birthday checkups. They both did a great job, and I was extremely proud of Jacob for being so brave about his shots. (I was also glad to have Joshua there to witness Jake being so brave about his shots...maybe it will rub off on him come August!)

Here are Nene's 1-year-old stats:WEIGHT: 22 lbs. 4 oz. (65th percentile)
HEIGHT: 30 inches (75th percentile)
HEAD: 47 cm (75th percentile)
CUTENESS: 10 (100th percentile)

Nathan is "real" crawling but not walking yet. He likes to pull himself up (and often tumbles over) and can cruise while holding onto things. Nathan can say "ball" (his favorite thing), "bird", "baby" (when he sees himself), "Mama", "Dada", and "more" (He's always hungry). He has eight teeth and more on the way. He thinks his big brothers are very funny and likes to play in/eat dirt.

Here are Jake's 5-year-old stats:WEIGHT: 47 lbs.(95th percentile)
HEIGHT: 44 inches (75th percentile)
INDEPENDENCE: 10 (100th percentile)

It's amazing the transformation that has taken place in Jacob now that he's FIVE. After the nurse told him he won't need shots again until he's 12, he exclaimed, "Oh my HECK!" He can't wait to start Kindergarten and thinks that once they've learned about the letter Z in preschool he'll be completely ready. He's suddenly become completely independent with his new slogan phrase being, "I want to do...what I want to do."

I should be in bed because I just got off the phone with you and I am soooo tired! Your boys are growing too fast. You tell Jacob to stop that. He is turning into such a handsome boy. Little Nathan is going to be crusing before long. I can't wait to love on those little boys next week. Hi Josh!

Your boys are so dang cute! They say the funniest things. I am glad you write them all down. I think I need to start a log too!
