Emmalynn's Accomplishment

At Emmalynn's preschool, Kiddie Kollege, they have a "Wall of Fame". When the kids learn to write their names REALLY well, they get to write it on the wall of fame. It's a big accomplishment when you can write your name perfectly, especially when you are four! Emmalynn was struggling to write her "y" just right and sometimes her "a" was backwards. The teachers are strict on her using the lines and making her letters a certain size. She usually made some too small. She has been practicing at home a lot. Yesterday she came home from school with a little certificate (and a treat) that she got to write her name on the wall of fame. She was so excited.
It's an exciting time in our house all around. Cassidee is nearly completely potty trained and Adam is getting close to walking. All we need is to get Dan a job and Leesa to repaint the kitchen and life will be complete. (for a while anyway!!)

Poor Adam

The birthday boy had a fabulous weekend with lots of attention, cake, frosting and new presents, but Monday morning wasn't so fabulous. At 9:30 in the morning Adam had his 1 year well baby visit to the doctor. The doctor said he had 2 very bad ear infections that we are guessing he's had since about Christmas. (I've just attributed his crankiness to the teething that's been going on.) He also weighed in at 17 lbs. 4 oz. which is exactly what he weighed at his 9 month visit. The doctor wasn't too happy about that either. "Feed him more, feed him more!" says the doctor. "Well," says I, "he's just like Emmalynn!" Then of course, to top it off, he got 5 shots in his poor little legs. It's so tough to be 1.
