Ella Grace - 2 years old!

We adore this darling little girl! She is such a sweet, kind, gentle girl. She loves her little brother so much, whenever he cries she goes to him and pats him and says it's ok Henry. Ella Grace loves her baby dolls. She walks around with one of them all day long. She loves to burp her baby, change it's diaper, feed it a bottle, and bathe it. Last week she had an ear infection and the only way she would take her medicine is if she got to share it with her baby. She still loves to dress up and read her books, but her favorite activity is blowing bubbles. Some of her favorite foods are pizza, pears, grapes, oatmeal, pretzels, turkey, salad, and CANDY! Ella grace is quite the talker...she now talks in sentences. She is still really shy around anyone except family. Another favorite activity is cleaning. She loves to help me unload the dishwasher, and when I give her a paper towel she runs around the house dusting everything
Here are her 2 year old stats -
height -33 1/4 inches 40%
weight - 21lbs 7 oz -2% (still a little peanut!)
head circm -47 cm - 50%

Henry - 4 months!

I can't believe our little Henry is 4 months old! He is a mover and a shaker. I can't leave him alone at all because he rolls all over the place! He loves to suck his thumb and put about anything else he can get his hands on in his mouth. Henry has the best smile and loves to laugh. He thinks my ponytail is the funniest thing ever, he laughs when it swings back and forth. He loves to check out his hands. He opens and closes his fist and loves to swing his toy keys around. Another one of Henry's favorite things is his toes. He loves to grab his socks and kick his feet. His favorite spot is still his swing, but he also enjoys spending time with Ella Grace outside in his exersaucer. Here are his 4 month stats:
weight - 13 lbs 6 oz 25th percentile
height - 24 1/2 inches - 25th percentile
head cir. - 41 1/2 cm - 25th percentile

Uncle Justin and Aunt Cathy's wedding

Last month we headed into the tundra for Uncle Justin and Aunt Cathy's wedding. our whole family was lucky enough to get to stay at Aunt Cathy's family friend's house while they were away for a vacation. Ella Grace Loved playing with the doll babies there. Brian's parents offered to keep Henry for the the weekend. We were sad to leave him, but it was soooooo cold and we know he was so warm snuggled in with Nana and Papa. The wedding was beautiful and Aunt Cathy looked stunning. We got to participate in the wedding which was a mass. Our family got to bring up the gifts. Ella Grace loved all the music and dancing, but I think her favorite part of the trip was flying FIRST class! Wow what a lucky girl! One benefit of having a husband who travels for work! I do think it's kinda ironic that my 1 year old is already flying first class while I just started and I'm 35! ahhh, signs of the times!
