Well, one week ago today my babies turned 1 year old!! Yes - TIME FLIES. They are doing great. We had our one year old check-up and they are growing like weeds. Allie was 21 lbs 10z, Jasmine was 23lbs 4oz, and Tanner was 24 lbs 13oz. Our birthday party went very well, but it was a hard day for us. The Friday before that we found out that my brother in law passed away in a tragic accident. He flies for UPS and his plane crashed in Dubai. It's been a rough few weeks, but we are taking it one day at a time. He was a wonderful man and we will all miss him very much. We will be heading up to WI next week to say our final goodbyes at the funeral.
However, the party did go well all things considering. I didn't have as much food as I wanted, didn't plan all the activities, but that was to be expected considering the circumstances, I think everyone forgave me :-) However, we did manage to make a pinata for the kids which they LOVED and we also had "Little Pig Hunt" which is like an Easter egg hunt but with paper pigs. The kids loved it. We also were blessed to have my niece Ava stay at our house with us for 4 nights while Mom was in Dubai taking care of some things. She enjoyed the party, especially the pinata, and had a great time with Mason when she was staying with us. She did great and is a sweet little girl!!
We also had our 1 year old checkup last week and shots :( Tanner did the best with shots, he is super tough, barely cried. The girls on the other hand made it known that they were NOT pleased with the shots. They are meeting all milestones for a one year old but walking, but we are getting close! Allie weighed 21lbs 10oz, Jasmine 23lbs 4oz, and Tanner 24lbs 13oz, yes he is a moose!!
Okay as for our new adventures and milestones.
#1) My girls can finally wear very small ponytails on top of their heads, we are working on getting more hair.
#2) Girls know how to stand and are cruising around the furniture. Allie will stand alone for a few seconds, thinking she will be our first walker.
#3) Tanner pulls up to stand when he feels like it, but normally is just on his knees. Except when he's in bed or wants to play with Oscar.
#4) We do not like baby food, we would rather feed ourselves and make large messes.
#5) We all still have 6 teeth a piece, 4 on top two on bottom
Mason is doing great as well, he really enjoys going to preschool and his new friends. He talks about Avante, Keaton, Emma, MaKayla, & Logan. He is always excited to be dropped off and has lots of fun stories at the end of the day. He is working on his vowels right now along with tracing and cutting :-)
Well that's about it for now - I will follow up with pictures from the birthday party in a separate post. Take care and will probably see some of you next week in Wisconsin.
