Some random things
Cecily had her two month check up yesterday. She's doing great! The doc says she's nice and big. She's in the 97% for weight and 100% for height. Of course, I'm sure it helps starting out large. :) She's a good/happy baby for the most part. She still doesn't sleep very well at night though. It's been quite hard trying to keep her awake during the day because I'm always on the go and every time I get in the car, she falls asleep. She'll also stay asleep as I transfer her to the stroller. She can sleep through any noise. It's good and bad at the same time. Trying to keep her awake during the day has proven to be harder than I expected.
On another note, it was Hans' 31st birthday on the 3rd of Dec. We had a nice evening. We got a babysitter and Hans and I went out to a great Greek restaurant. We had cake in the afternoon so we could celebrate with the kids. This German cake is fantastic! It's a chocolate/raspberry cake with cream filling.
The kids all got shots yesterday. I had a very proud moment. Cecily had to get three shots and the other two kids got their flu shots (better late than never right?). Gabe and Eva didn't make one peep. They didn't complain or fuss at all! The nurse was floored at how tough they were. The baby only let out one little yelp and then she stopped too. At the end of it, the nurse asked what was wrong with my kids. She wanted to know why they didn't cry and Gabe just looked up at her and said "my daddy teaches us to be brave". I thought that was so adorable! Very proud mommy moment.
I just posted a video and pictures of Eva's dance class on Facebook. Today was the first day parents were allowed to attend the class. She's been taking ballet since September and she really loves it. If you want to see those pictures and video, go check out my facebook profile. I don't want to repost them here because it took too long.
