Birthdays, Doctors and Band-Aids

Lucas is five months old!

Lauren is FINALLY 30 pounds!

My beautiful cake...thanks kids and Steve

Friday was a day to honor my 33rd birthday, Lucas' five month birthday, and immunizations for Lauren and Lucas...BOO!

Lauren finally hit the 30 pound mark.  She is still in the 5th% for her height and weight.  She will just be our little brown mighty one.  She was due for four immunizations.  She wasn't too happy about it, but she was brave and only shed a few tears.  Her four band-aids were the highlight of the day. Hello Kitty graced her left leg, while pink camouflage graced the right.  Dr. Gaddis' final advice to us for Lauren...replace her whole milk with half and half. Fatten that child up!

It was time for Lucas to be looked over.  What a tiny boy he is too!!  He only gained a pound in two months (which puts him at a 0% for weight) and is in the 3rd% for his height.  Bring on the cereal and veggies for this little man.  Lucas' time for the immunizations went really well.  He cried, screamed rather, but was quickly consoled when Daddy picked him up. 

Overall the two kiddos are healthy...wee ones, but healthy.   :)

Later in the evening, I was surprised by a beautiful bouquet of flowers, wonderfully written birthday cards and a cake to die for. (Literally, it put me into a sugar coma.) 

As another year passes, I look forward to everybody else having birthdays, no longer me.  I think I'll remain 33 for a few more years.
