Today was a BIG DAY for the babies! 12 month check-up and shots! Notice the (s) behind the word shot! They each got six total!!! Our room was loud, to say the least!! Two nurses came in so that they could do three in each leg simultaneously. Avery was the last to get her shots and she was crying before the needles even got close, she was so scared from the reactions her brothers and sisters had, she knew something awful was about to happen!! Thanks to Mrs. Brenda and Matt for meeting me there to make it easier! Also, big thanks to Jennifer, Johnna and Lila~Kate George for picking up Hannah Noelle from school so she didn’t have to witness the trauma!!
The measurements from today are as follow:
Cannon: 21 pounds, 12 ounces, 30 inches
Gunner: 24 pounds, 4 ounces, 29 1/2 inches
Lauren: 16 pounds, 12 ounces, 27 1/2 inches
Avery: 17 pounds, 1 ounce, 26 1/2 inches
These are some of the pictures Leighann took at our house two days before the party!
Leighann had the idea to take some of Cannon with Matt’s glasses since (at that point) we just thought maybe Cannon would be getting glasses. Since then we it has been confirmed that our Lil’ Can-Man needs some assistance in his vision! We ordered the glasses and they should be in within the week and I’ll be sure to post some pictures of “The Stud!” And of course we had to take some pictures with the infamous Pappy Duck! He loves that sucker!!
I bought these John Deere boots when Gunner was months old, they just seemed fitting for him! They’re still WAY too big, but too cute to pass up for some pictures!! I have never thought Lauren looked anything like Avery, but in some of these pictures I had to take a double take to check the bow color! She’s filling out so much better now and starting to look more and more like Avery. Another big plus for me was when Leighann came she said, Sandra, Lauren is a little mini you! I melted! I’ve had 5 children and none of them have strong Pater jeans! I think it’s just the smile and the nap of her hair, but I’ll take any resemblance I can get!
Leighann wanted to do the angel wings like she had done with Lauren and I said, well, that’s SO not Avery! She’s our little punk-a-rella! So, we dug out Hannah Noelle’s costume from last Halloween and put her hot pink boots and Cowgirl hat on and it was so Lil Avery!! Of course Hannah Noelle wanted to join in on the picture action too and Leigh-Leigh was smart enough to bring angel wings “just her size!” The last picture of HN with Lauren is so perfect because she loves to play with Lauren and drag her around everywhere and Lauren always has that “I’m not so sure about this” look on her face!!
Here’s an answer to some questions from my last blog post!
Long time lurker, first time commenter. You did a bang up job on that party with all the coordination of colors with kids. That was great. I live in Philly, MS and want your contacts. Thanks so much!! haha! Who does your invitations (firstname.lastname@example.org), cakes (Tanya Cumbest), pictures Leighann, monogramming Laci-May's ~ did the monogramming on the first set of outfits. Pae-Pae purchased Cannon, Gunner and Avery’s and we couldn’t find Lauren a matching one so LaVonda at Hamilton’s (here in town) made hers, outfit making (email@example.com) Bridgette did all of the second outfits, the appliquéd letters and the precious shorts and Hannah Noelle’s skirt and appliqué!, etc The hair bow pins for the girls came from Engravings By Carol . Where in MS are you all. We’re in Hurley, Mississippi. I know I should know this but I forgot and then the whole East Cent. thing threw me off!
Hope you have a Great Week!!
