Christmas took a whole bunch out of me. I got a crap ton of things made and I will be sharing, but first - I kind of need photos of everything I made, durn it! I knew I forgot something.
Then New Year's. Oh lord did New Year's take a toll on the family. We're finally recovering from a nasty cold that hit the family New Year's Day. So much fun.
Then there were the round of appointments. Eye doctors. Nutritionist and our GP. Luckily, everyone has a clean bill of health, even if the boys were angry most of yesterday evening at me, because I opted to have them get flu shots. You'd have thought I was killing them - for over 2 hours - yesterday with all the racket and complaining they did.
So I'm going to share stats on my guys, cause I can. I'm their mom and its my blog and I can gloat and brag a little if I want to. :) My big guy turned 7 on the 27th and I just can't believe it. He's 7!!! Where the heck has time gone??? Anyways, so here are the stats.
Harrison is a whopping 41" tall and finally weighing in at 32.2 pounds. He's 91% for height, but had been 17% for weight, and the nutritionist visitor. We can't get him to gain weight. He weighs what he did at 2. He's grown, a lot, but he's just getting skinnier. I can see that he's starting to chunk out in places which is good, but we've got to stay on him about getting the good fatty calories in him.
Devlin, on the other hand, is still huge. He came into the world huge and he's still that way. Although, I don't have an accurate height measurement on him because he won't stand up straight when it comes time to get measured. We had his cardiologist appointment back in the middle of December, and all checked out. He's got a murmur back, but the Doc said that it was an innocent one. It was just turbulence in his heart because its still growing. The membrane is still stretched across his left atrium, right above the mytrial valve, but its only about the width of floss. So nothing to do about it, but still monitor it. So he's weighing in at 67 pounds, but at the card. appointment he was 51" and yesterday at his well child he was 52". I seriously doubt he grew a full inch in 3 weeks, and we'd have a better number for his height if he'd had his heels against the wall and was standing up straight. So he's 94% for weight and 97% for height. We're finally not off the charts!

I have a love affair with all things crafty. It doesn't matter what it is, if it interests me then I'm probably going to try it. I don't know what I'd call my sense of style, because it ranges from anything traditional to somewhat modern. I think if I had to name it it would be Traditional Vintage meets Shabby Modern. :) That's kind of a mouthful, but you get the idea. As long as its durable, workable, and nice looking then I will probably like it.

Hey! I'm really interesting! No, really, I swear I am. Read on! Please? Pretty please? Okay, here goes! Just as Heather has a love affair with all things crafty, I have a love affair with all things foodie. It makes perfect sense too. After all, we all need food to survive, so why not make it delicious, fun, interesting, and/or new...etc...etc...etc. You get the picture. I will pretty much try anything from tofu to elk to frog's legs and anything in between. I can't really say that I have favorite foods, but I do try to buy what I can locally no matter where I am. I come from a long line of farmers, after all. See what else is left!
