Kiddo Update

We had a height/weight checkup for the kids the other day, and I was delighted to find that our boys are healthy and doing great! Praise the LORD for healthy kids. God is gracious to us - we are blessed indeed.

Evan had grown quite a bit in the last 6 months! At 2 years and a little bit, he's weighing in at 25lbs 4 oz and is 33 inches tall. He's really taking off in his speech and amazes me daily with his BUSY play, silliness and joking. I don't remember much about Aaron at this time - probably because I had a brand new baby which equaled sleep deprivation, and Aaron talked MUCH earlier so the progress wasn't as obvious at 2. Love our sweet-natured littlest boy!

Aaron weighs, at 4 years and a little bit, 36lbs 4 oz and is 41 inches tall - and is quite the kid. He cracks us up all the time with his facial expressions and "explanations" of things as well as his tall tales (we are working on making sure he remembers what he made up and what really happened!) He can count to 20 in English, and by 10's to 100 (thanks to a song tape), 10 in Spanish (with a little help) and is starting to grasp beginning reading concepts. We are looking forward to beginning K4 at our house in just a couple weeks! Aaron is really enjoying his second year of Cubbies and his 4 &5 year old class at Bible Study Fellowship.

What a privilege to have these two boys in our family. They teach me so much about myself (sinful) and my God (holy, just, loving, full of grace, ETC.). I'm so grateful!

WOW, sounds like Aaron is doing great with counting and such! Btw, what song tape are you referring to for the counting by tens? Always on the lookout for good resources!

Praise God for fun healthy kids!

Al, it's an old Discovery Toys song tape my mom gave us (she used to sell Discovery Toys) it is at least 20 years old, and probably older. :-) Dark blue label, not sure that helps. There are a ton of memorable songs on there. PLEASE NOTE: all songs are not necessarily pleasantly memorable!!!

Haha! I almost laughed out loud when you said your mom used to sell Discovery toys. My great aunt used to sell them & I used to get Discovery toys for Christmas/birthday gifts every year :-)
It sounds like your boys are thriving; what a blessing!
