7 year old checkup

Height 47.75″, 45th%

Ella only has a quarter of an inch to go! She really wants to be 48″ to ride the Jack Rabbit at Seabreeze this summer. Ella is doing great, she talked the doctor’s ear off at her appointment.

At the age of 7 Ella has surpassed her dad in both flappy bird and jump roping. They did a jump rope unit at school and raised money for the american heart association. Ella kept talking about it so we bought a jump rope so she could practice at home. She jumped rope all weekend. Hopefully the weather will get nicer soon so she can do it outside!

4 year old checkup

Height: 41.5″ and 82% – Probably going to end up taller than Ella. (Just looked it up Ella’s stats, she was more than an inch shorter and 7 pounds lighter at her 4 year check up.)

Abby had her 4 year old checkup last week. The best news for her was NO SHOTS! But she will need two next year before school, so it is a case of just delaying the pain. She is doing great. The doctor was impressed with all that she could do. Some of the items on the checklist were knowing 4 colors and jumping, she could do that a year ago. Having an older sibling really helps with that sort of thing, Ella has Abby doing math and working on site words while playing school. Abby does get to be the dance teacher when they play school.

Abby has definitely gotten to the emotional age, as an example on the way home from the doctors Abby started crying in the car. I asked what was wrong and she sobbed “I’m sorry, I can’t tell you … I don’t know”.

New Photo Gallery

I am finally getting around to using the photo station on our server and getting the photos off of our SDcard. In my defense Mia had hidden the card reader and I just found it a week ago. I added a link on our blog’s menu to the new photo gallery and added pictures from Christmas and Ella/Abby Birthday party. Just a few months late. 😉
