Apollos' 5th birthday party!

Apollos had a dinosaur Lego swim party!  He had a blast swimming with his friends and loved all of his presents!  Apollos also had his 5 year check up.  He is 39 lbs and 42 1/2 inches tall, both the 40th percentile.  He also got his kindergarten shots.  He was a champ, but later that day informed me the shots ruined his Christmas. :)

We made Indian headdresses for Thanksgiving, only Apollos said it was a dinosaur headdress since it had feathers.

On the way back from IL, I took this picture thinking Khaliel was asleep.  A few minutes after I took it, I heard, "Mommy I pooped!"

Taking a nap with Daddy

Apollos was sick, so we let him sleep in our bed.  When I came to bed, he was laying vertical instead of horizontal.

Getting ready for the Christmas Train!

Enjoying a warm December day!

Khaliel can now reach the pedal of the Jeep.  He still can't steer, so Apollos was steering while Khaliel hit the pedal.

St. Nicholas Day!!

The kids and I went to IL for Thanksgiving this year.  We had a blast hanging out with my parents for the week.  Ellie did great in the car.  Ellie also had her 2 month check up.  She weighed 12lbs and 2 oz (50th percentile), is 23 inches long (50th percentile), and her head is 16 inches in circum. (75th percentile).  The  boys were a lot bigger at their 2 month check ups.  No wonder she seems so small to me!  She is sleeping 8-10 hours at night.  She is still sensitive to dairy, but it is getting better.  The boys had a Thanksgiving program at their preschool.  They sang songs and Apollos' class said a prayer.  It was really cute!

Apollos is standing in the very back behind several of the kids.  Occasionally you can see his head poke out.
