Laila and Isaac

Today I had to take Laila and Isaac into the doctor for their check-ups. Isaac was so funny. He was so talkative and kept saying funny, random things. Today he chose to stay home with me while Will and Eli went to their friend's house down the street. I was so happy to have him stay with me. I got him markers and paper and let him draw. He drew cute little pictures--turtle resting under some shade, me and him on the beach, an alien space ship landing, diamond, and some flowers. Such a cute boy. He got measured and weighed today. He is in the 50th percentile for height and the 1oth percentile for weight--such a skinny boy. He was 43 inches tall and 35 lbs.

Laila also got weighed and measured. She was 10 lbs 14 oz and 24 and 3/4 inches tall. That puts her at 50th percentile for weight and 97th percentile for height! It must be from my tall brothers. Everyone comments on how long she looks. She is such a sweet baby. She is loving her baths lately. She is also finally getting to be a little happier when I put her down and will stare at her mobile on the swing. It's nice. Her medicine for the reflux seems to be helping quite a bit--I'm so thankful for it!

I'm really happy with my kiddos right now. Each of them make me so thankful to be a mother.

He is such a sweet boy. All of your kids are so special.

I'm so glad to hear that the reflux medicine seems to be helping. To me babies are so hard in the first 3 months, at least Daniel, Jared and Brenden were, they just wouldn't sleep well and were fussy babies. I hope she continues to be calm when you lay her down and that she continues to feel better over time.

It was great to recently get to see your kids both in Colorado and here at home in Utah. I am glad you love them and are their mother. You do great and they love you. They act like kids, but are obviously great kids. I am glad they are my grandkids.
