Last Friday was a really fun day. It was pretty ordinary and nothing too special, but it was still really fun.
My best friend Katie, who's laid up with a broken wrist and can't go to work right now, decided to spend this typical Friday with us. I think that's what made it so fun!
We started the morning with Dance class. We missed the week before due to snow, and all of the kids were making sure we remembered that! It seems that at any given time, one of our normally-well-behaved children was having a meltdown or just plain not listening to instructions. Either way, we were all happy to be back in our dance routine, and seeing my little girl dance around with her pals never ceases to put a smile on my face!

We only had about 30 minutes between the end of dance class and Elliott's 2 year check up at the doctor's office. So we rushed to the other side of town and made it just in time. I always get a little antsy for doctor's appointments. I don't really know why, but this time I knew that shots were on the agenda, so that probably had something to do with it. Ellie was still in her little dance outfit, and she really had no idea what was coming!
The appointment went smoothly, and little miss handled her two shots (one in each leg) very well!
She weighed in at 23 lbs (8th percentile), is 32 inches tall (11th percentile), and has quite the big noggin at 19 inches (71st percentile). All just as I had suspected :)
For doing so well with her shots (and because mommy and auntie needed a Target fix), we headed to Target and hit up the snack bar and the Starbuck's before we got our shop on!
I'm sure glad that I took the time to enjoy these moments.......because the second half of our day wasn't nearly as nice! Ha! Shots took a toll on Elliott, and no nap made for an exhausting afternoon for both of us. Ah well, such is life!
