Mother's Day was last weekend and what a wonderful Mother's Day it was indeed! I spent the first part of the beautiful 80 degree day, on a date with my amazing little girl. My wonderful sister bought tickets for Kaydence and I to go see Elmo Live, as a Mother's Day gift. Although we do not allow Kaydence to watch television, she has come to learn of Elmo and the gang through a few of her toys and stickers that we buy her. She has definitely come to love Elmo, and I knew she would have a blast at the show.
We then preceded to dinner at a yummy Japanese restaurant with all of our close family and friends. This was a multipurpose dinner because not only was it Mother's Day but it was also my sisters 23rd birthday, as well as a farewell to a dear friend of ours who has recently embarked on a trip to everywhere and nowhere in particular. Sushi was my food of choice and great sushi it was!
Kameron had his four month check up on Monday and is growing and thriving very well! He is a giant big boy weighing in at 18lbs 2oz (>95th percentile) and 26in long (90th percentile). In the last two years of getting to know our pediatrician, we have have built a strong relationship and truly adore her! She talks to us about our kids as freely as one of our family members. She loved Kameron's "man-boobs," as she called them and told me I should take pictures of them before they go away so I can use as them as blackmail later. My sweet boy is starting to look more and more like his daddy each day. His blonde hair, blue eyes, and pale white skin have led many people, who see him and I together, to believe that he is adopted! Sometimes I can't even believe that he is mine:-)
Sister is of course still her petite self, coming in only 4lbs heavier than her baby brother. Each day she gets smarter and smarter, and although I know I am biased I can't help but believe that she is an absolute genius! At only 22 months of age she is able to count to 11, recited her alphabet, distinguish between her left and right, recognize and state almost half of the letters in the alphabet, distinguish and recite her shapes, put together simple puzzles, and understand the basic colors; in addition to her impeccable ability to communicate both verbally and with sign language. Each day she impresses me more and more.
