Cecilia lost her first tooth

 The tooth fairy will need to visit again! This time it's for Cecilia - this 5 year old lost her 1st tooth tonight and she left the note outside her room as she doesn't want the tooth fairy to come inside. This tooth had been loose for several days and it just fell out easily tonight. Our little girl's baby smile is all gone!

Cecilia turns 5 in Florida

We were fortunate to travel for Spring Break this year to Grandma Jan and Grandpa Steve's new house in Ft Myers, Florida. It was a great time and happened to fall over Cecilia's Birthday and Easter. Cecilia enjoyed the time as she loves being outdoors and lucky for us it was unseasonably warm so she got lots of time in the pool. She also loves the beach so we spent 2 days - 1 afternoon in Naples on Vanderbilt beach and 1 morning visiting Will, Anne, and Andrew on Sanibel Island. 

The other big change for Cecilia is that she is now wearing bifocals to hopefully continue to correct her Esotropia which she had surgery for a year and a half ago. We're hoping this works and she is doing such a great job wearing them (and is so cute too!).

Other highlights from the trip include: swimming, seeing family, ordering takeout, Mom and Dad getting away for a sunset walk on the beach, and playing with Abby and Grandma and Grandpa, and all of the Easter activities! Kyle made it through his first ear infection with tubes with some drops and an ear bandit for the pool, and Cecilia has her first wiggly tooth! The Easter Bunny also found us in Florida which was great but we had too much stuff to bring home so Grandpa and Grandma will have to bring it back with them. The plane ride was good as our kids did great - it was more stressful to be in the airport around adults that couldn't wear a mask as well as our 2 year old could. Hoping we all continue to stay healthy.

Kyle's 2 Year Check-up

 Kyle had his 2 year check up today. I guess we missed his 18 month but keeping track of 3 kids' doctor appointments and 18 months was around his pre-surgery appointment, it must've just slipped our mind. So he had to get 2 shots today but was a champ!

Here are his stats:

Height: 35.24 inches (71%)

Weight: 29.98 lbs (84%)

Head Circumference: 19.4 inches (76%)

Kyle is 2

 Today, Kyle turned 2! It's been quite a year for the world and it has been for Kyle too. We loved seeing his milestones this year like walking and talking. He is saying so many words and even a few word sentences. He is very polite and always says 'thank you' and you have to acknowledge that he heard you before he stops saying it.

Although we couldn't celebrate this year with our whole family, we did have two small gatherings with the Grandparents over the past two weeks. We tried a variety of meals like pizza, mac & cheese, ham, and fruit. He doesn't eat much meat and we're still working on baking eggs in food for him to try to get over his egg allergy but egg-free ice cream and substituting greek yogurt for eggs in cake worked well. 

He chose his favorite color for his cake at school- yellow. And he loved opening his presents! His new utensils, books, and trucks are great. The quilt that Grandma Jan made is wonderful and the nugget couch that we entered for in a lottery and Grandma Jan got selected! Now they can build forts with that instead of our living room couch.

Happy Birthday Kyle!
