I am going to work on the picture thing!!!!

Last week I was busy party planning and celebrating and then this week I was at the Dr. office with the two girls for their 3 year and 1 year well check-ups. I must first say that I am SO GRATEFUL to leave the Dr.’s office with a clean bill of health for my girls. I read more and more lately about sick babies and children that I thank God for my wonderful family and my healthy sweet girls!
Caroline’s visit was on Monday and thankfully she had a great report. She seemed to be developing well with a weight of 19 lbs and 7 oz (24%) and 29 inches tall (38%). Her ears looked clear of any fluid or infection so that was a relief considering the past month we battled double ear infections! We have successfully gotten her off of the bottle (except when Daddy gives her one in the mornings when I am teaching a fitness class!) and she is loving the whole milk. This little girl can certainly EAT. She will eat just about anything you give her and will cry/scream if she wants more. I am not sure how she gets all down without choking sometimes since she still only has her two bottom teeth. Finally this week the top front two teeth broke through and coming down . She is still working on forming more words to add to her list of vocabulary. Caroline does say “DaDa'”, “MaMa” and then babbles all the time. She has been furniture walking for several weeks now but within the last week or two she has gotten brave, stood up by herself or taken off walking without holding onto anyone or anything. Caroline is always so happy and proud of herself when she walks. She just turns to look at us with a huge smile and sometimes a sweet little laugh that makes me smile every time! When I went in today to pick Caroline up at daycare I saw her walking across the room! I was shocked and excited. Her teacher Myniah said she had been doing that all day. It is all so bitter sweet. I definitely want Taylor and Caroline to hit all of their milestones but I get sad thinking they are not babies any more. Can’t they stay like this forever? :)
Taylor had her three year well visit on Wednesday. She too left with a good report. We have a tall one on our hands….hopefully Caroline will inherit the McKay genes as well and be tall! Taylor weighed 37 lbs (85 %) and is 39 inches tall (95%). I feel like the list will go on and on if I let you know everything that Taylor is doing these days. She makes me laugh all the time. Her vocabulary is amazing and she talks all the time. She loves to sing, dance, play “pretend”, ride her bike and is really into arts and crafts. Really is she three already? I can still remember bringing her home from the hospital and wondering how I was going to take care of this life?! I think Rob and I have managed to make this all work. We Love Taylor and Caroline with all our hearts and really understand how fortunate we are to have them with us, as healthy as can be! God is good!!

Since my parents were out of town this weekend, we also watched their dog Sammy. The girls really love Sammy and enjoy chasing him around. Poor Sammy, he is getting too old for these kids to bother him but he had a good weekend over all too.
Taylor's best friend Jacob was able to come to the party too with his parents and his new baby brother Alex. Taylor and Jacob are such good friends and play so well together. I love to watch them interact with one another as they make me laugh; so darn cute! These two were on the GO the whole time. There aren't many pictures of them since they wouldn't sit still that long!

Caroline has recently started to take just about any object and put it to her ear as if she is talking on the phone. I think she gets that from seeing her Daddy :) I think it is so cute. When she does it I usually say "HELLO" and she just laughs and does it again and again. That might be a new favorite game with her?! I hope so as she still really enjoys the "Uh-Oh" game....you know where she will drop something on the floor, look for it and expect you to pick it up for her. Of course I pick it up, give it to her and then there it goes, "Uh-Oh!" She loves it and does it over and over.
This weekend we also got to visit with one of my best friends Laura and her daughter Ellie (who will be 8 months on Thursday!) The girls had a great time together. Ellie just looked around and took everything in. She was very content. Then we had Taylor and Caroline who were like wild women; they were all over the place with their toys, talking, dancing and trying to play with sweet Ellie. Hope we didn't scare them off too much and Ellie will come back for the birthday party this weekend!
