Addison's 2 Month Check Up...

We had Addison's 2 month old check up this morning.  Well to quote the Dr "she is an over achiever!"  She is now 14 lbs 10 oz and 23 1/2 inches long.  She is in the 90% for her age!  She looked good over all and got 3 shots!  She didn't think that was very much fun and cried for a little while.  She is sleeping soundly now, Nathan or Emeri didn't have any problems with their Vaccines so I hope and pray that she doesn't as well.  It was funny, Nathan had to leave the room while our own Jr. doctor had to watch the whole time!  Yes, I think Emeri definitely has a future in medicine.  Any way the kids have enjoyed spring break although we haven't done much.  Brent has tomorrow off so maybe with the long weekend we will do something fun!  One thing I have learned from this week off with all 3 home... it is going to be a long summer!

Lil' Rustlers Rodeo

For those of you who know the Houston Rodeo is a big deal here in Texas.  It runs almost the whole month of March.  Some of the biggest names in rodeo come to compete they have famous performers do concerts every night and they have a large carnival that runs as well.  It is a lot of fun.  So when the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society asked if Emeri would like to participate in the Lil' Rustlers Rodeo of course we said yes.  Not really knowing what to expect we headed down on Wed.  But before of course Emeri and Nathan had to look the part.  I went and got them some authentic cowboy boots and hat!  Oh they looked so cute!  Any way it was a rodeo for children who face or have faced special circumstances.  They pair them up with a Cowboy or Cowgirl either on the committee or that participates in the rodeo.  Then they headed to the floor to have a mini rodeo.  Emeri had a blast, she was so cute and very brave.   They had bucking bronco's, bucking bulls, a petting zoo, real horses you could ride.  She even got her picture up on the jumbo screen!  After we got to stay and watch the real rodeo.  It was a lot of fun and both kids passed out on our way home!
