Soccer star!

For the past couple of months I've been part of a soccer league that plays on Saturday mornings.  My team is the Cheetahs!

My grandma & grandpa took me to my game this weekend since my mom & dad were out boating.  I did awesome & played like a champ!

My sissy and Auntie Lauren sat on the sidelines cheering me on!

I had to take some time to show my appreciation!

Oops, I guess I didn't see my teammate standing here!

I'm such a goofball!

Luckily I have a very patient coach who occasionally needs to bring me back into the game when I get distracted!

Some weeks I just don't feel like playing, but this week I was focused.

With all of that focus, I earned myself the medal for the week!

I was very proud of myself & even though Mommy & Daddy weren't there to see me, they called & told me how proud they were too!

This Saturday is the playoffs so I have to bring my A game & beat the Cougars!  Go Cheetahs, go!

A visit to the doc-tah!

As I slowly woke from my nap at school today, I thought I was dreaming when I noticed my mom standing next to my mat!  She's never had the pleasure of seeing me nap at school and honestly questioned if the whole thing was a farce.  I mean, how can 2 teachers get 27 four year olds to sleep?!  We left & headed to Reese's class since we both had a doctor visit scheduled.  Mommy was not exactly excited to be taking both of us for shots by herself!  It was funny to see her holding a diaper bag as well as my hefty, screaming sister while trying to answer the nurse's questions & fill out paperwork.  The second we walked through the doorway of the exam room, Reese lost it... guess she has negative associations with it!

I had to undergo a hearing test & an eye exam & pee in a little cup!!  When the nurse handed it to my mom as she was holding Reese, she said, "Seriously?  How is this happening?!" as she laughed hysterically.  Mom handed a BALLISTIC Reese off to the nurse & headed to the little boy's room with me & I did a fine job of providing a specimen if I do say so myself.  And I do.  And I did.  We each got shots; Reese 2 and me 1.  Mommy did not know what to expect from my shot since I hadn't had one since I was two years old & much less aware of what's going on.  I did awesome & didn't shed a single tear!  I'll have to get two more shots for Kindergarten next year, but it'll be a piece of cake.

So here are my 4 year & 7 month stats:

Height: 43.25" (76%)
Weight: 46.50# (91%)
BMI: 17.54 (93%)
BP: 88/46

Here are Reese's 18 month stats:

Head Circumference: 19.09" (93%)
Height: 31.5" (43%)
Weight: 28.75# (94%)

The doctor was a little surprised to see the sharp jump in Reese's weight between this appointment & her 15 month since she gained just about five pounds in three months!!!  That belly does not lie!  Coincidence that it goes along with her increase in fussiness?  Not likely.  It seems when all else fails, Mommy or Daddy throw some food her way, especially cheese.  Yes, yes, I realize my mom is a dietitian but people get desperate, ya know?  But, they'll cut back on the snacks & all will be well again with my short & stout lil sis!

Little fishies!

When I found out we were going to Grandma & Grandpa's to celebrate Mother's Day, I literally counted down the days as I typically do.  Wednesday morning, when I wake up three more times we're going?  My parents think I'm pretty cute & sweet!  For good reason too!

We were swimming fools this weekend!

When Reese woke up from her nap & saw us swimming, she wanted to put her feet in.

Which quickly progressed to her hands...

Well, you can see that she eventually ended up in the pool!  Mom slapped on a swimmy diaper & she was good to go; bathing suits are so overrated!  As you can see from this picture, Daddy thought the water was rather cold!

Reese thought the water was just right!

I was back together with my partner in crime, Mikayla!

And we were able to celebrate Maddy's 10th birthday.

Maddy was pretty excited about her new kicks & wore them the rest of the weekend!

Speaking of birthdays, today is my Grandma's birthday!  I pretty much made her day when I called & sang to her!  Happy birthday, Grandma, we love you lots!  Mother's Day was so much fun, playing with my cousin's & celebrating the wonderful Mommy's of the family!  You can head over to Mommy's blog to see more pictures from the weekend.
