18 month and 3 year well-checks and Haircuts!

A few weeks ago, the girls had their well-checks and haircuts! It was Sophie’s first!

From October 2010

We cut Phoebe’s hair off into a cute little bob! It was tangling so much, that we ultimately decided to go short. She was behind the idea too. I think it turned out adorable! She sat like such a big girl in the chair while hers was being cut!

Her 3 year checkup went very well! It was on 10/27/10, she weighed 35.5 lb and was 39 inches tall.

The same day Phoebe got her hair cut, Sophie got her first hair cut! It was badly needed…

I didn’t get a great after shot, but you can at least tell that it’s not in her eyes anymore.

I also didn’t get any “during” shots because I was holding her during her cut. She did pretty well. I can’t believe we went so long between cuts! The haircuts were on 10/28. Sophie was right at 18 months old for her first haircut!

Sophie’s 18 month well check went very well too. She was 30 lb, 34.5 inches, head circumference was 48.75 cm. I think she’s trying to catch up to her big sister!

Stolen Moments

It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day lists of things to do before I can sit down and relax for a few minutes at night. So easy that I often forget that spending time with Phoebe and Sophie while they are awake is really the most important thing I can do. Last night Phoebe asked me to go sit in Daddy’s rocking chair with her (the recliner). I had already sat in the recliner with them for a few moments and was hoping to do the dishes real quick, so I told her no. Then Sophie toddles into the kitchen and starts pulling on my skirt and I realized that taking a longer moment to sit with them was way more important than the dishes at that time. So we all three sat in Daddy’s rocking chair for a little while. After a minute they both wanted down to do their own thing again. I tried to take in the moment as much as possible because I know soon they will not want to sit with me in a rocking chair anymore.

Snippets of my morning

In the car on the way to daycare.
Sophie: Mama
Me, while adjusting the mirror so I can see her: Sophie! I see your dimple. Dimple! Dimple!
Sophie: blank stare (who knew they could start this so early?)
Me: Do you think Mama has lost her mind?
Sophie nods.
Phoebe: I do! I think mama lost her mind!

Later, we’re listening to Ziggy Marley’s Family Time. Phoebe sings along. Even sweeter when Sophie tries to sing along too.

“I love you too, I love you too. I tell you I love you. I love you too, I love you too. I love you.”

“I’m gonna cry cry cry. Set the children free.”

I love hearing my kiddos sing along to these songs. And also I think I’m addicted to this CD! It’s a kid’s CD, so I tend to only listen to it when they’re in the car with me. Which is pretty much every morning.

So with that, I’ve had a pretty good morning so far. I hope the same is true for all of you. 🙂

A few photos

From June 2010

Phoebe sleeping in her winter hat (that thing is lined with fleece!) and mittens on a HOT Summer (almost anyway) Day. Silly girl! She was conked out too, since she didn’t move at all when I came in and took this picture!

More silliness- She likes to get shoes out of my closet and wear them around the house. Added bonus this day, she also decided to get the hand held broom and clean up. Too funny!

And of course, no post is complete without Sophie too! She was fussing here because she was ready for dinner! But she was smiling at the same time. Couldn’t make her mind up, I guess!
