This past Friday I took both girls to the Dr. for long past due well visits. Both are as healthy as can be and developing perfectly. They are practically like twins. They are both in the 75th percentile for height (no surprises there....look at their parents) and they both weigh 24 lbs!!! (Even though E is 3 1/2 inches taller than Iz). It's not even that Iz is big for her age, she is in the 50th %tile for weight...E is in the 20th.

One thing the Dr has been asking about for awhile is if we had moved E to a big girl bed. I have been putting it off for ages because I was worried about the transition, and how it would affect Iz with them sharing a room, etc. And we were really starting to enjoy sleep for the first time in 2 years!!!

She said now is the time, so this weekend E went from this:

To this!!!!

To our surprise the transition has been pretty easy for the most part. Nap times are not as easy, but she goes down just like when she was in a crib and stay in bed (asleep) all night long. Praise God!

We are also getting rid of the highchairs. Both girls want to sit at the big table now when they eat, so 2 highchairs and a crib are going away. Anyone need anything???

Great quote from our fearless leader

Ok, whether you are a Rep or Dem, conservative or liberal, you must agree this quote is absolutely the truth.

"You should be thinking about how can your child become bilingual? We should have every child speaking more than one language...I'm serious about this...We should be emphasizing foreign languages in our schools from an early age because children will actually learn a foreign language easier when they're 5 or 6 or 7 than when they're 46 like me!"
-Barack Obama

Remember all those high school Spanish classes? What do you remember? Not much I bet. But, I guarantee your child will still be saying "Come on vaminos" when they get older after being exposed to Dora. Why? Children learn language easier, and retain it. And the earlier the better! Babies can learn a new language before they can even talk. Don't believe me? How did your baby start communicating with you? Non-verbal, then short sounds, followed by real words, finally structured sentences. This is how kids start learning a new language whether it is their 1st or 5th!

Your child can learn a new language here! If you are not in the Dallas area, try this one!

As you can see I've done some remodeling around here. It was time. I realized this shortly after someone asked me "Wow, do you have another on the way?" Ummmmm, I certainly hope not. "Well, with the title....". Ahhhhh, yes, a bit misleading.

So don't update your links just yet. I am tossing a few ideas around....but we are definitely NOT making room for another baby.
