Ahhh, so yesterday was a good day.....
(Yesterday Morning waking up)
MJ: Mommy, is it Tuesday?
Mommy: Yes, it is Tuesday
MJ: Is Daddy working today?
Mommy: Yes, MJ Daddy is working today, but he will be home early
MJ: Mommy, is today our Doctors Appointment? (very excited voice)
Mommy: It sure is.....
MJ: Can we go now, I really want to see Dr Parsi?
Mommy: Sorry MJ, our appointment is at 2.00pm
MJ: I want to go RIGHT NOW!
The girls are so funny, MJ was really excited that yesterday was their 3 year appointment. Of course they are now 3 1/2, but better late then never......Shawn took off from work to join us as we both really like to be involved in our children's doctors appointments. He usually asks something that I forget or vice-verse, plus the girls love it when daddy is with us.......So yes the girls have a clean bill of health, we will have to go back for a 2 shot series for Hep A, something they do down here and I am not sure if they do it in WA (I know they do Hep B shots everywhere). I just wonder if its our proximity to Mexico, not really sure....The appointment was great both girls were awesome, friendly, and confident....MJ was a little shy at first but was chatting up a storm by the end of the appointment.....it was nice not to be rushed as we had the doctor for the full hour....I really do like our new Doctor she is great, we have been so lucky to have had a wonderful doctor in Issaquah and now a wonderful doctor down here.....There was a pretty funny moment in the appointment....The Dr was handing the girls lollipops (before she had been asking colors and numbers questions) and MJ blurts out "Amarillo " (Spanish word for Yellow,which was the color of her lollipop) we all erupted in some light laughter, I guess Dora really does teach my kids some Spanish that they can remember....It was pretty cute and the Dr was impressed.......For those of you who want the run down and digits...
Kiara: 34 lbs & 38 3/4 inches tall 60% all the way around (she liked getting her blood pressure taken)
Mikiah: 32.5 lbs & 37 3/4 inches tall 50% all the way around (she liked playing in the waiting room)
So I promised the girls if they were good at the appointment that we would make a Poke Cake when we got home....Daddy picked the flavor of Jello.....Strawberry....(Mikiah and I were out voted she wanted Lime, and I wanted Lemon, but we will make those next time, as Poke Cakes are soooo good during hot weather).....MJ has gotten over her fear of the Kitchen Aid and the hand mixer as you can see from the pics below.......and the poke cake turned out awesome, the girls were good at poking the cake with wooden skewers......as usual I may add it up on the Breezy along with a few other recipes after I get my work done today....
