My baby boy turned SIX on January 14, 2018. SIX. What a super fast ride, this game of life.
John is 3’9″ tall, which is in the 52nd percentile. And weighs 47 pounds, which is in the 57th percentile. Right in the middle!
He is the sweetest, kindest, caring little boy there is. Well behaved, smart, happy and a true pleasure to be around. Always. Oh, and so handsome. He loves playing flag football and trading Pokemon cards. His favorite TV show is Spongebob and he likes Ed Sheeran music.
I like to look back at Julia’s growth and it looks like at the same age, she was 3’11” and 71 pounds. Julia’s always had a very athletic build, and John’s a bit more lanky. 🙂
My posting has really slowed down these days ’cause life. We’re very busy with activities and work. However, all is going very well. Kids are super happy and we’re having a good time.
Julia turned 9 last month and we had her annual check-in with the doctor today. She’s 4’6″ tall and about 87 pounds.
Julia is doing great in school. She loves it. She’s very smart and an avid reader. She swims, plays soccer and softball, and is involved with theater and Girl Scouts.
Quick funny story from this week – Julia was going to enter a Jack Skellington painted pumpkin in to a contest. She was running out of time to make it, but was able to get her white coat of paint done a day before the submissions. Well, the next day she comes in to a normal looking but sparkling shiny orange pumpkin. The white paint was modge podge! No time to re-paint, so she’s got a simple glistening pumpkin entered in to the contest display LOL!
That’s it for now.
“Mom, is it bad if I tell someone they are a shit person”? – John
Also, John is upset because all of his friends just care about their friendship and not his jokes.
He’s the best.
Hi. I don’t do the best job updating this blog these days, but I’ll continue to try to note big milestones. I figure this website is our “baby book” that the kids can enjoy reading some day.
Julia at 8 years old is 4’4″ and 90 pounds. She’s solid as a rock. Strong and athletic like her mom. 😉
She plays soccer and softball seasonally. She swims every weekend, and has recently participated in the Lion King Jr theater production at the YMCA.
I’ve been so busy I don’t have much time to post updates to my blog these days, but I had to make an effort to post for Julia’s 8th birthday! In a blink, she’s EIGHT.
Julia is smart, athletic, thoughtful, opinionated, caring and curious. She’s very confident and loves life.
Julia swims, plays soccer, softball, and basketball. She participates in Girl Scouts and is currently performing in a play at our local YMCA.
This weekend she asked me about the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as Puberty. OH MY!
Here’s a photo of my girl (in pink) on her 8th birthday, and another photo of her and some of her BFFs at her party over the weekend.
Time flies!! Crazy fast. A blink.
