I was holding Gavin during Macie's snack. All of a sudden, he started squealing and laughing hysterically at Macie. It was the cutest thing! I still don't know exactly what he was laughing at. I guess Macie is just that funny! I grabbed the camera and got two short videos. How can you not smile when you hear this??
Disclamer: The video quality is very poor. It is very difficult to hold Gavin and video tape at the same time. I also forgot to turn the camera the correct way. The second video is the best!!!

Here are the stats from the appointment: Weight 19 pounds even (80th percentile), Height 27 1/4 inches (75th percentile), Head (she didn't give me the exact measurement but it is in the 95th percentile!!!!)
Dr. Voyles said he is right on track with everything. He said that he was happy that I nursed him until 6 months because that is the most crucial time. He did very well at the appointment. He got four shots again, one orally and three in his leg. He always has to get all of them in his left leg bless his heart. He screamed of course and I didn't have a pap with me (guess it was left at daycare as we left in a hurry). Overall, he is a happy, healthy little boy!!!
Macie went with us to the appointment. She is such a mess! She did very well considering we were there for over an hour. She helped the nurses with Gavin and ate her cheerios. She kept saying, "Me turn" for everything....even the shots!!! I assured her that she didn't want her turn on that!

In other news...Macie no longer calls us "Mama" and "Dada". We are now "Mommy" and "Daddy". When she says it in her sweet little voice our hearts melt!

God made you art
Macie wanted to help cook and had a hard time accepting the fact that Mommy was busy. I had the trash can pulled over by me so that I could put all of the tomato waste in it. Macie loves to play in the trash can and we are constantly trying to keep her away from it. When we weren't looking, she knocked over the can. Needless to say, it was a big mess and she was put in time out. When, Brian was cleaning up, she kept asking to help. He got an adorable video of her cleaning the floor. She wanted to help so I guess we didn't violate any child labor laws!

Brian and I went grocery shopping last Thursday night when the kids were in Sturgis. We bought a gallon of milk among other things. Saturday night I was dumping out the rest of an old gallon and rinsing out the milk jug when I realize that the gallon we bought wasn't in the fridge. Hmmmm....did we leave it at the store? Oh no...it was in the back of the Escape. You got it....it had been the car with temps reaching over a hundred degrees for 2 WHOLE DAYS!! The carton was all disfigured and let's just say it wasn't a pretty sight. That thing would have exploded before long! The next morning, Brian had to go and get more milk!
Yesterday after school, I laid on the floor and did my usual. I asked Gavin about his day. He kicks and squeals and smiles. Macie wanted to join in on the fun and she said "Me turn". I said, "Macie, how was your day?" She responded very matter of factly, "I played Melindas" (or a version of that I could plainly understand). I said, "What else did you do?" She said, "Eat". "Did you do anything else?" "No"
Did I really just have a conversation with my 22 month old about her day? Holy cow she is growing up fast!
A Few Words From Macie

We've made some pretty big changes in the kid's schedules lately. Macie is officially down to one main nap a day. At daycare she is sleeping for 2 1/2 to 3 hours each afternoon. Every now and then she needs a late afternoon nap, but not as often as before.
Gavin has started going to bed at 7 when Macie goes to bed. We realized that we were pretty much shoving that last bottle down his throat. We thought we would give it a try last weekend and it was a success! We had to wake him up this morning to give him his bottle. It is both weird and nice to have both kids in bed by 7. Brian and I don't know what to do with ourselves. We are able to spend so much more time together and get a lot done! I'm loving it!! The only negative is that we have to split our time when the kids are awake even more and can't spend as much quality alone time with Gavin once Macie goes to bed.
Gavin is rolling over more often, although still not consistently. He even rolled over from his belly to his back on Sunday with all of us watching! It won't be long and my little man will be on the move!
On the way home today, I said, "Macie I love you". She said, "Missed you". Simple moments like that make me smile! That girl is talking nonstop! One of my absolute favorite things she says all of the time right now is, "Hi Dadin" (Gavin). She loves that little guy just as much as we do!

*Allie forgot to watermark the pictures so please don't steal them:)
Macie is doing better with drop off at the new daycare. Wednesday was the first day that she didn't cry when I left. I was so happy. Of course, she hasn't been there since so we shall see how Monday morning goes.
A grandparent found a paper that a former student had written about me. The student is currently in third grade and I taught her in first grade. She wrote it sometime last year. It was the sweetest thing and reminded me why I do my job!
