Stats and Flowers

Cael had his 2-month check-up with the nurse practitioner on Wednesday.

He is now 11 lbs, 12 oz and 23" long which puts him in the 50th percentile for height and weight and having gained nearly 5 lbs in 6 weeks! Everything else checked out fine. He's met all his milestones for 2-months and is even showing an emerging responsive smile and coo. It's adorable. :) I'm trying to get a picture of it, but it's hard to capture. :) He got his DTaP immunization for diptheria, tetanus and pertussis which are most common in our area. I'll be taking him back in 2 weeks, along with Teagan, to get his next shot (either HiB or Prevnar) and the rest of her shots needed for preschool. Then before Hawaii he'll get the other immunization and possibly a second DTaP since we are travelling during cold & flu season on an airplane. He did fine with the shot. Actually recovered quickly in the office, but was fussy off and on the rest of the day.

Speaking of Teagan's shots for public school, we got the letter in the mail today about her preschool schedule. We have a parent meeting on Aug 25. On Aug 26, she gets to go to school for an hour with some of her classmates to get acquainted and then she starts Tues Sept 2. :) Her first monthly tuition is due August 15th! How much does preschool in Berea, OH cost?, you might ask. $120/month for 3-days a week, 3 hours/day.

Meanwhile, last night we got a call from Auntie Liz requesting our presence at David's Bridal as Jami and her bridesmaids were dress shopping and the wedding dress & coordinating flowergirl dress were discontinued, but in the shop. Time to buy! I've included pictures. Teagan was a riot! She wanted to know what her boyfriend (Jon, Jami's son) would say and then she wanted a purse and hat. :) Such a cutie!

On with the pictures....

Cael June 12, 2008 vs. Cael Aug 5, 2008

Princess, I mean, Flowergirl Teagan. Just FYI, the bow will be black to match the
bridesmaids dresses. This is almost an exact replica of Jami's dress, btw. The bridesmaids
will have red (maid of honor) and black (bridesmaids) dresses in a similar style, matte sateen fabric with the same sort of pick-up style skirt. :) Gorgeous!!

And while I'm here....

Happy 1st Birthday, Gavin!!!

Keith and Liz hosted a fabulous 1st birthday party for Gavin at Oak Grove Picnic Area in the Brecksville Metroparks. The weather was great. They cooked up hamburgers and hotdogs, made homemade potato salad, had grapes and watermelon, and a delicious almost-casada cake. (sans custard basically white cake with whipped cream and strawberry layers) So yummy! They had gift bags for each of the kids (including Cael), a frisbee and kite (until it got stuck in a tree), bubbles, swings nearby and most importantly lots of close friends and family. It was a pretty awesome party for a very awesome kid! (and awesome mama and daddy!) Congrats on surviving your first year as parents, Keith and Liz! Love you! The adventure continues!! :)
