More birthdays

Today was Jordon and Amy's birthday. It started off by taking Natalie and Jordon to the doctors for their well check ups. They are right on track. Jordon weighs 31 pounds, this puts him in the 10th percentile, but that is normal for him. Natalie is 13.9 pounds, she is in the 25th percentile. Jordon didn't need to get shots, that would not have been nice on his birthday! However, Natalie had to get 3. I always feel so bad when I have to hold them for shots and they look up at me with those eyes that say "why are you letting them do this to me". But I held her and fed her, then she was okay and took a nice long nap. Jordon just wanted to get out of there, he kept saying " mom, we are going to be late for my party".
After the doctors we went to Auntie Jen and Uncle Micah's house to watch the boys while we were at work. They really have a lot of fun together, and they all keep each other busy which is nice. I am so glad that we are near them.
When Micah got home we ran to the store to get some last minute things and rushed home to get everything ready. An hour later we were eating Fettuccine Alfredo, broccoli, garlic bread and salad. Jordon loves fettuccine but Amy does not. She was nice enough to give in and she had butter and garlic noodles in stead. We also had two desserts. Amy wanted yummy squares, so grandma made them. Jordon wanted a rainbow sprinkle cake and a strawberry cake. I layered them and covered it with chocolate frosting... ah the things we do for our kids! It actually was pretty good. We then watched as they opened their presents. Jordon got mostly cars, four wheelers, bikes, and money. Just what he wanted. Amy got a new bed set, a gift card to a salon, and some clothes.
It was a beautiful day and so nice to spend with each other. Hopefully someday all of our family will be here together.
