My loves

Today we made our way over to the doctor. It was a pretty breezy visit though, no shots for Arland and Porter got a booster shot. So minimal tears were present. 

ARLAND: 28 lbs (15%) and (60%) for height! This is fantastic because he never even makes the chart in his weight but the doc said that is just the way he is built tall and skinny! (Lucky him) 

PORTER: 15.10 lbs (2% birth) and (20% birth) height! My little premie is catching up to the big kids now and I am so happy about this! He is LOVING food ( all kinds) right now and eats constantly! His development is perfect and right where he should be. He wants to crawl so bad and is so close! But he can sit up and he growls at you when he wants something, and he is loud! 
Oh and we rode the train after at the mall because this little boy LOVES trains. Notice the conductors hat!

You see I have this love/hate relationship with birthdays. He isn't 1 or 2 any more he is 3! When they are 1 and 2 they are still babies. They are learning to walk, talk. They have to still be rocked to sleep at times.  When they turn 3 they are no longer baby..... He is now a little boy. So you see when birthdays roll around I get so sad that all their "baby" moments are going so fast. On the other hand I love who Arland is right now. He is funny, smart, snuggly. He is caring and thoughtful "momma you fine?" He is sassy " momma I NO do that!" He is ready for adventure "momma I ready!" He is loving. 

For Arlands birthday he awoke to a choo choo track outside his room! He was thrilled! Then we had birthday pancakes with sprinkles and then daddy took Arland swimming at the pool. After that they went to Mcdonalds and played! He was exhausted after that! So home it was and he spent the next 3 hours taking a much needed nap before his guests arrived. When Arland woke up he had a fun choo choo outfit to put on from Great Grandma Jepsen! He LOVED it! Then his guests arrived. Trevor, Chelsee and Flynn.  Josh, Whitney and Adie. Great grandma Pulham. Jason, Melissa, Charlee and baby Ruby. Grandpa and Grandma Neubert with Aunt Sophie and uncle Noah. And our cute neighbors Kaitlyn and Maycee. We had so many fun people here and you loved playing with all your friends. 

Happy number 3 my sweet boy.

The Dentist

Oh yes it is now time. Time for arland to take a friendly trip to his friend the Dentist. We rushed there this morning because I always push appt to the (very.last.minute) anyway. We got there and they showed arland to a chair where they would take his xray and wasn't having it. So forget that the dental hygienist said and moved him onto the chair where they would clean his teeth. He climed on the chair and laid down watching tv while they cleaned his teeth, he did great! He even let the dentist look in his mouth! No cavities and his teeth looked great!

The littles

Where do I start you have a few sayings that you say over and over. "Mom you ok? I'm fine mama I fine"
When I ask you to do something: "NO I NOT!"
When you are talking to Porter: "I know Porta I know Porta"
"Mom I hungy!" And then you pretend burp after that. 
Kiddo you make me laugh! 
Arland you are also fully potty trained now! Woohoo! It is the BEST! You also LOVE  planes, cars and of course your all time favorite is trains! You love to take pictures and pretend cook. You LOVE to go to bed! ( luckiest mom right here) you say " mom I go home my bed" when you get tired. We love you little guy! You brighten my day and keep us laughing! 
Happiest person ever right here, you rarely make a fuss and you are constantly smiling! You are my joy baby and keep us on our toes! You love to just watch everyone and be apart of the crowd, quiet as a mouse! Grandpa Dave said that you are just like auntie Emm. Quiet and content. The past couple weeks you have been really sick, double ear infection and pneumonia. After trips back and forth to the doctors we finally got you some medicine and now you are just peachy! I hated seeing you so sick. Now you are back to your old self, after a trip to the emergency room and several doctors we are just glad that your happy self is back! We love you porter and are so happy we can call you our little peanut.
