6 Months & 4 Years!

Annie turned 6 months old last week.  I took her for her 6 month check-up & Jack for his 4 year check-up on Monday.  Annie weighed in at just over 16 pounds & is in the 50th percentile for weight & 75th for height.  Her noggin remains in the massive 92nd percentile.  

Jack is a lightweight at 32 pounds & 40 inches tall.  He's in the 20th percentile for weight & 50th for height.  

They are both hitting all of their milestones & healthy.  4 shots later, here are some pics for you!

Annie eating sweet potatoes.  
We started solids a few days ago.  She isn't loving it yet.  
I'm already ready to move on to food she can pick up & eat herself.  
She's much more interested in the sandwich on my plate 
than the sweet potatoes than on her spoon.


Our dear, dear friends Kevin & Laura (aka Kbo & Lola) came to visit this week from Jersey City.  Their son, Linus, was born 11 days before Annie (and due 4 weeks AFTER her...) & we had yet to meet him & they had yet to meet Annie.  We had a fun filled visit & it made us miss then even more than we usually do.  The babies loved each other.  The were full of smiles & touches & coos for each other.  It was very sweet.  We've already decided that Annie & Linus are getting married one day.

Tired babes & mamas.

Jack & Lola
Jack had a serious crush on Lola & in this photo he is soaking wet, trying to get her all wet.

Summer Fun

We've gone to the Tower Grove wading pools a few times this summer & it's turned into one of our favorite places.  Extra bonus is that I don't have to wear a swimsuit...

Happy Father's Day John!

I am so thankful to have married a man that's not only a wonderful husband, but also a wonderful father.

Some questions I asked Jack this morning (ripped directly off my friend Melanie's blog...)

What's your favorite thing to do with daddy?  (I asked this several times & got different answers.)
-Playing Candyland.
-Playing Spiderman.
-Playing the racing game.
-Having piggyback rides.

What don't you like about daddy?
-When he hits me.  To which I replied- "Daddy doesn't hit you!"  and Jack said, "Sometimes he does when we play!"  Whew.
-When he does crazy faces & scares me.

What do you call daddy?
-Stinky head.

How does daddy make you happy?
-He hugs me & kisses me & tickles me & does his chores.

Puddle Walk

Jack, enjoying the aftermath of a torrential downpour.

And, what was Annie doing, you ask?  Just hanging out.

Dan Zanes!

We went to Chicago this past weekend to visit our friends Brad & Amy & to see Dan Zanes.  We all love Dan in our house.  His music is fun & thoughtful & not really kids' music at all.  Most of our dance parties, of which there are a lot, are to Dan Zanes tunes.  The show was amazing, as expected & our trip was so much fun.  Even the car ride was great- very little crying & Jack got to test out the DVD system.

Waiting for Dan to come out!

Jack wanted to go down to the front right away to dance.  
Very different from last year when he cowered in my arms for the first half of the concert.

Dan & his crazy hair.
