Happy Birthday TWO you!

No…this isn’t a post on the awesome party we had for the kids last weekend.  The kids have all been sick this week with nasty coughs, colds, and fever – and Sloan has tonsillitis – which makes for a week with a lot of loving but not a whole lot getting done.  I still need to sort through all the pictures and put a post together and will try to do that this weekend…promise.  But here is one of my favorites from the weekend.

We did take them to the our favorite pediatrician for their 2 year “well” visit – even though they weren’t really well.  I thought I would share their weights and measurements and some things they are doing at two.  

IMG_8742Sloan Olivia
27 pounds 7 ounces
34 inches tall
Things you love: books, kitty-cats (really all creatures small and furry),  shoes, brushes, baby dolls, pink blanket, coloring 
Favorite foods: cookies, crackers (pretty much all carbs – just like all women!)
Things you say and do:  You love to be clean and tidy up – I hope that sticks!  Your Aunt KeKe says that you have a laugh just like the pillsbury doughboy – we just love it!  You are very tough. Your new favorite saying  is “Oh gosh!” You love to sing and I’ve caught you singing the whole alphabet song, but you won’t do it for me when I ask!  You are the best sleeper.  You haven’t quite learned your brothers yet…everyone is Jagger to you athough you know there is a Rocco and a Madden!  You love to say “no, no Jagger!” to each of them.  We love you SO much and are so proud of you.

IMG_8743Rocco Dean
28 pounds 13 ounces
34 inches tall
Things you love: books, dogs, bubbles, playing outside, wrestling with your brothers, blocks, baths 
Favorite foods: meats, milk & juice
Things you say and do:  You are a big helper when its time to clean up toys.  You love to cuddle.  Your voice is a little deeper than your brothers.  You can also sing most of your ABC’s.  You are almost always the first one awake in the mornings.  You are a very happy boy with a sweet spirit.  Grandaddy calls you Mr. Independent.  You like to say “Yeah Baby!” – one of Big Pop’s sayings!  You can count to ten. We love you SO much and are so proud of you.

IMG_8744 Madden Jax
25 pounds
33 inches tall
Things you love: books, bubbles, playing outside, wrestling with your brothers, puzzles, coloring, dancing, baths 
Favorite foods: You may be the smallest, but you are probably our most consistent eater.  You eat most anything, but your favorite is probably pizza.
Things you say and do:  To you, everything red is “Madden’s”, everything blue is “Rocco’s”, everything green is “Jagger’s”, and everything pink is “Sloanie’s.”  You know your colors the best.  You are very curious and you like to get into cabinets or things you are not supposed to.  You get scared of big live animals (like horses.)  You have a smile that will melt anyone’s heart.  You are silly. Your favorite word is probably “No.”   You can also sing your ABC’s and count to ten pretty well.  We love you SO much and are so proud of you.

IMG_8746Jagger Cole
27 pounds 8 ounces
33 1/2 inches tall
Things you love: BALLS, books, bubbles, playing outside, wrestling with your brothers, puzzles, coloring, baths 
Favorite foods: Breakfast is your favorite meal.  You can put away some breakfast foods – just like daddy! 
Things you say and do:  You are a leader.  If I am correcting your brothers or sister, you also like to chime in and say “Sit down!” “No, No Madden!”, etc.  You make us laugh all the time and you feed off of our laughs!  You are fearless and are a climber.  You love to play with the big kids.  One of your favorite words is “again!” You can sing some ABC’s and count to ten as well.  We love you SO much and are so proud of you.

I am sure this year of the two’s will bring lots of changes and challenges.  But thinking back at how awesome I thought they were just a year ago and how much MORE awesome I think they are now…I am excited! 

Love,
Kami
