Doctor's Appointments

Today, Helena and Jonathan both went and saw the doctor for well check-ups - Helena's 4 year, annual check-up and Jonathan's six month check-up. Helena was 41 lbs and 39 1/2 inches. Jonathan was 19 lbs, 10 oz. and 27 1/2 inches. Both got their fair share of shots as well.

Helena's Cooking Party

Helena had a cooking party with her friends in New Jersey. The kids made their own indivual pizzas from scratch and also decorated chef's hats.

This is where Helena's party is at

Happy 4th Birthday Helena!

October 16th was Helena's birthday. It's hard to believe that 4 years have gone by already. Helena was given the choice of where she wanted to go for dinner, and she selected Charlie Browns Steakhouse...because they have a great salad bar.

Jonathan is six months old!

It's hard to believe that Jonathan is six months old today. He has been sleeping well, eating well, and always has a smile on his face. Everything also seems to find its way to his mouth (like the foam number in this picture). Next week is his doctor's appointment so we will get to find out how much he weighs and how long (tall) he has gotten.
