2 weeks and 2 years

Photobucket

I am a bit behind on this, but both of my kids had their doctor's appointments lately and for my own records, I like to remember their stats...

 Emmerich's 2 week appointment
(It was acutally 3 weeks because of our lake powell trip)


Photobucket
Weight: 7 lbs 12 oz (14 %)
Length: 20.5 inches (29 %)
Head: 14 inches (25 %)

He is growing right on track and has gained more than an oz a day according to the doc!

Agnes' 2 year appointment

Photobucket
Weight: 24 lbs (20%)
Length: 33 inches (28%)

She absolutely hated the doctor.  She wouldn't even stand on the scale... she was screaming bloody murder! We had talked for weeks about the doctor, and she was so excited to go.  I had to stand on the scale with her and then subtract my weight. nice. She was also kicking the doctor and screaming during her exam.  He said she was a little firecracker (Evan says that was a nice way of saying brat... haha) I think she will get better after watching her brother do it every two months...

Anyway, I love these kids.  Life can be crazy but we are getting used to it. Why did I ever think I was busy with only one???

Lake Powell 2012

When we heard that the date for Lake Powell this year would be mid July, we knew we would have to miss out on it. But as the week approached, I was feeling pretty good after my c section two weeks before, and we decided we would try to go. After all, if it was too hard for either me or the two week old babe, we woud turn around and go straight home. Luckily it was pure bliss!

I never swam because of my still healing open wound... (jk not really open, but you know) and we decided Emmerich and I would just stay on the comfortably air conditioned house boat all week. (We were actually bundled up the A/C worked so well... crazy right?) Well, we got a little more gutsy as the week went on and we actually went on the speed boat a bit. It was a nice week to still have lots of help with Agnes before Evan went back to work. She had a blast and would hardly come to me all week. She is such a daddy's girl and it doesn't help that it feels like I am constantly feeding her brother...

 Here is an overload of pics from the trip! Please don't mind that I am still totally fat from just having a baby... but it's history right?
