Here is my daredevil boy swimming. He always screams cannon ball when we are at the pool. I don't think he really knows what that is. He just knows you have to say it when you jump in the pool. I think I missed him saying it as he jumped before I was ready.

Noah has had some imaginary friends. They are called the red people. He has had them for about 1 and a half years. They are really little and can't climb the stairs (we send a rope down for them to climb). The red people have been showing up more and more this summer. Kate used to have an imaginary bear called Jin Jin.

Maggie had her 18 month check up yesterday. She is a very healthy girl. She weighs 22 lbs and 8 oz. (25th%) and she is 33 1/2 inches tall (90th%). She has a large head as the others-- it is also in the 90th % for growth. She received one shot and a finger prick to check for iron (13.5). So all was good. We did talk about her lack of speech and her major temper tantrums that she has occasionally (HA! I mean every time she doesn't' get her way).
Now for Kate...She had a not so great appt. In December she was not measuring on the chart for height (I realize this may not be a big surprise to most of you as I am a shorty). She was always in the 5th-10th % for height. Well she was -3% (not on the chart) in December. We were told to have her rechecked in June (her half b-day month). Well it looks like she is at a standstill for her growing (she grew a 1/4 of an inch). This may just be a plateau and she will most likely pick back up, but in the meantime we need to have some test run. So ugh they had to draw blood yesterday and it was the worst thing I have had to witness as a parent so far. She was screaming at the top of her lungs "it hurts it hurts". I was holding her legs and today realizes how dumb that was I should have been near her face so she could see me. It was awful. They couldn't get enough out of one arm so they had to stick the other arm. She was completely dripping in sweat form sheer terror. I felt so bad for her. We should have the results back on Friday. No need to get into what ifs until we know the results.

I am never infront of the camera, but will try to get Noah to take some pictures.

Kate has Girl Scout camp next week so we are busy trying to get all her stuff ready for camp. Noah will continue to have lessons next week and Kate will join him again the third week. I am hopeful that is all they will need.
Maggie's new trick (mama is not so thrilled with)...those wonderful sheets we recieved as a gift that you zip on and off...well SHE can unzip them and it is CRAZY!!! I think I am going to have to go to the old sheets that are a pain to change.
