Elaina the big 5 year old...

This sassy little girl gives us a run for our money so much. No telling how her future will look. She can be a handful but her future is bright....

Trying a new kombucha... It wasn't too bad.

Ahhhhh Happy Birthday Elaina (yesterday)

She had her party in her class but I forgot to post!!!!

Happy 5th birthday almost kindergartener!!! You sassy troublemaker :)

So busy....

I am so thankful for my mother. She is super Granny. With my new job that is very time consuming she has been taking the kids to appointments. Etta had an SSI appointment yesterday. All looks good with that. Ben has his regular Wednesday therapy and she has been taking him to that. I have my own appointment this morning. Ben will start summer camp where I work tomorrow. That will help keep him busy. I guess I will be driving the big van everyday taking 5 kids in to work. Jaynie is doing well but she is becoming a sassy little thing. I just can't seem to play catch up....

Grocery shopping

And when you need fruit and kombucha you load the kids up and hit the grocery store. When we were close to the car a woman was looking at all the bumper stickers I have on the van. I couldn't help it. I had to ask her if she liked them or not. I have had a challenging week and was a bit defensive. She said she liked them. They are a bit hippy....

My afternoon

When you have a croupy cough and eye goop you get to visit your favorite doctor. Elias has blocked nasolacrimal ducts. These are the large ducts that you can see in the corner of your eyes. Everyone calls it the tear duct. The tear ducts are actually all under the eye kids and really small. Eli just had a cold and needs his nasolacrimal ducts massaged... Big sister Eliot came along for the ride.

All this after working a little over 7 hours and getting stood up by one EI job and having another reschedule. Eli didn't sleep very well last night so neither did Dad or myself but I am no too tired. Eliot and I had a really good talk on the way home. It really made me remember the talks with Lyn and Annika at the same age.

Ben and Elias at the doctor

We are still working on figuring out Ben's needs. He met Eli's pediatrician today. I like the family doctor he goes to but Ben may just need a bit more attention. We got the Connors scale to complete. As for Eli he has a bit of thrush but that is expected after starting daycare this past week. And the fact that he takes more bottles than nursing it was bound to happen especially because he takes a paci. He weighs 9 pounds 4 ounces and is 21 inches long. That puts him at the 2nd and 4th percentile. Ben weighed 44 pounds and was 46 inches tall. No worries.... No reason for everyone to be big and tall.
