Happy Easter (a day late)

Sorry for the day later post but I was SO sick yesterday. I got to sing in church, but because 90% of our ward was out of town (it's Spring Break this week) I couldn't find ANYONE to play for me. So I sang acapella. Fun. To add insult to injury, I have a sinus infection and singing with a stuffy nose and sore throat is a challenge. So I started the song about 4 notes lower than written. LOL!

Anyway, here are a couple pictures of the kids. It was AWFUL lighting but you get the idea.

And today's update:
Maddie had her 2 year appointment (yes, I know we're a little late) and the doctor is recommending a celiac panel test so see if Maddie's growth issues are because of celiac or if she's just small. I'm hoping it's just genetics. She's already wheat, egg, soy and peanut free. I don't really want to have to do completely gluten free as well.
Her stats:
22 pounds WITH clothes
31 inches WITH shoes
He said she's about the size of an average 16 month old!
She says more than the "50 words" that they are looking for. She can tell you where ALL her body parts are (including her armpit and elbow), she knows most of her colors, can count to 10 (but skips 6) and can sing her ABCs. She gets herself dressed and undressed, puts her shoes on (usually the right feet) and can color. So she's above average mentally, but significantly under average for her size.
But look at Grammie Mimi (my mom). At a 5 foot even and a whopping 100 pounds, I think Maddie's just going to be "mimi size" :)

Hey Shanee! Of course I remember you!
Your kids are darling! About your remarks with the ears, we see an ENT in 2 weeks for possibly tubes. The Dr. actually started Carolyne on allergy medicine and so far its helped clear up her constant runny nose. Maybe that will take care of the problem and we wont need tubes! Your little girl is so cute and Id say, she'll be just like your mom!

And last but not least, how is your family doing?

Maddie is a shrimp but definitely a cute one! I'm bummed we couldn't hear you sing on Sunday. I'm sure it sounded great!
