2 Year Check Up followed by Date Night

Olivia had her two year check up on Tuesday the 24th. She weighed a little over 24 pounds and is 33 and 3/4 inches tall. She is within the 25% range. The nurse said she was very well proportioned with her weight and build. Olivia's phrases include: "help me", "love you", "bless you". She loves Spongebob, Dora, Mickey and Minnie Mouse. She LOVES to eat and is not too crazy about milk. She will drink it but we have to prompt her a lot. She loves all kinds of fruit and most vegetables. She has never really liked tomato soup or coleslaw. She loves bath time and looking at books. And she is finally getting more hair and it's out of control. She lookes like wolverine when she gets up from a nap.
Her potty training has been a little off schedule. She did well Monday and Tuesday. This morning she had done #1 and #2 in her pull up. She also wet her pull up later today. But she has peed on the potty. It's mainly my fault for not being consistent with her. It's hard work! So, hopefully we will get back on schedule because she does well when I am consistent.

Alex picked the girls up from school yesterday and took Makayla to gymnastics so that I could have some time to get ready for our date. After gymnastics we took the girls to Megan's and headed out for a grown up dinner. We ate at the Bonefish Grill in Little Rock. The atmosphere was amazing and the food was great too. Conversation did drift to the kids several times, but I am okay with that. They are our life after all! We then went to The Fresh Market. I love that place! They have the best ingredients. I am a Food Network junky and they carry a lot of the things needed to make those recipes.




Then it was time to get the kids. We got home and it was back to reality. :o) Bath time, homework time, teeth brushing, and bed time.
We really hope that we can plan to have a special date night every couple of months. We went out on New Years and now at the end of February. So hopefully we can keep a schedule of it.

Aww You and Alex look great!! I wouldn't know how to have a date night with my hubby w/o talking about our kids! We try to have a date night once a month...but I find it hard to stay away from my kiddies for too long! I'm horrible! Sounds like Livi's doing pretty well with the potty training! It's so hard to have to drop everything you're doing to take them to the potty every hour! Haylie couldn't wear pull ups b/c they broke her out really bad..it was a diaper or panties for her. I think she learned real fast after peeing herself twice in her panties that she has to go to the potty! Although I must admit she was funny when she had an accident...she'd scream "Pee down my leg! Pee down my leg!" Good luck with the rest of the potty training! We need to plan an adult night in Little Rock sometime! :)

Glad you had a good time. You deserve it and you do need to plan grown up time for yourselves.

I am glad to see that Alex has learned to keep his eyes open for photos :o) Great pics. Luv U!
