This morning began with a bit of a jolt. The children had their two year and five year doctor's appointment at 8:40. At 8:05 I woke up...not typical to say the least. Carver was watching cartoons and Springer was still asleep. It never occurred to me that I should set an alarm; what are the odds? I didn't sleep past 8:00 the whole time we were on vacation-why today?!
So needless to say, we hit the ground running-and made it dressed and reasonably pulled together on time (albeit a bit hungry).
Both of them grew so much since their last check up. Carver is just over 47" tall and weighs 60 pounds. Miss Springer was 31 pounds and 36 1/4" tall. I believe she grew 3 1/2 inches since February! No wonder all the clothes around here seem a bit shorter. The biggest blessing of all though is that they are healthy. I have been so aware of what a gift that is and it's something I try daily to remember and thank God. They can see and hear and laugh and run and jump...I pray nightly that the same may be true for many, many years.
