Great News All Around

I forget how hard it is to get 4 people smiling at once, especially when 2 of them are under 3~
Sharon took this picture of us at Darla's wedding. Speaking of....

We had a great time at Darla's wedding. I have nothing good to say about the Americinn in Wisconsin Rapids or the hotel situation in general in that town, however that is neither here nor there and will perhaps be a post for a different day. Darla was radiant in her dress - and a good time was had by all.

Now, on to the news of the week. Drumroll please............ Lily now weighs 19 lbs, 9 oz! Yes, she put on over a pound in the last 3 weeks. Thank goodness for calorie supplements! She's now in the 7% and her doctor isn't worried about her anymore. Her height was questionable, but I think that was a measuring inaccuracy more than anything. If she can continue gaining weight, even a slow weight gain, I will be happy.

Next drumroll....... Addie has gone all day in big girl underwear for 3 days now! She is doing incredibly well. I was really concerned yesterday when we had to leave the bookstore because she needed to pee and absolutely refused to use a "big potty." Only the training potty will do for this girl. However, Addie made it all the way home without an accident. I went back to the bookstore today and got a book for her as a reward. The Kiss That Missed
I also had to appologize to the clerk because we left the kids section a little messy when we literally ran from the store. I also picked up Magyk and Flyte ~ Book 1 and 2 of the Septimus Heap series. We listened to Magyk on our roadtrip and I think it will be a good bedtime story to read to the girls when they are a little bigger. I'll wait to get Book 3 when it comes out in paperback.

We have big excitement this weekend, Mona and Boppa Dude, Auntie Reen, and Auntie Em & her family are all coming to our house. Hopefully I'll have good pictures to show from the zoo.

Septimus Heap series. That sounds like an affliction I dont want to have, something a doctor would tell you "You have a septimus heap series. Its fairly serious."
You will have to tell us how it is.
