Kylie's Birthday Party

Saturday morning we attended Kylie's 3rd birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese (and got to meet her new baby sister, Ava). After all the kids arrived, Trisha gave the kids their tokens to play games. Kaitlynn had so much fun playing the games and riding a few rides.

The kids were called back to the table to eat lunch, Chuck E. Cheese came out and we sang "Happy Birthday" to the birthday girl. Kylie opened her gifts and the kids went back to playing games. Kaitlynn had a good time at the party.

Kaitlynn made this bracelet for Kylie. She likes making bracelets for her friends.

Dave and I still needed to eat lunch, so we went to McDonald's. Kaitlynn played in the playland while we ate lunch. It was perfect. She had a great time playing with the other kids. There were A LOT of kids there, too.

We went home and got cleaned up and attended church service. Kaitlynn went to her class and learned about being kind.

Playdate at Gabe's

Friday, we attended a playdate at Eileen, Gabe and Merci's house. Emily, Ella and Beatrice were also there. It's always interesting getting the kids together because you never know how they are going to interact with one another. Gabe and Merci gave Kaitlynn her birthday gift, since they were unable to attend her birthday party. The kids wanted to open it up and play with it, but since the playset had small pieces, I decided it would be best to wait until we got home to get all the pieces out.

After the playdate, Kaitlynn and I ate lunch, then she went down for a much needed nap!

3 Year Check Up

Thursday, I attended my Women's Group / Bible Study then Kaitlynn had a 3 year check up at the pediatrician's office. She proudly got on the scale and couldn't wait to get her height measured. They checked her temperature and then we went to a small room where they checked her blood pressure and hearing. Kaitlynn asked the nurse if she could use the kitty cat blood pressure cup. She did great getting her blood pressure taken. I thought it would freak her out when it tightened up, but it didn't. I remember being freaked out by that way into my teens. Maybe I am just weird! She did great with the hearing test and didn't mind the nurse putting the ear buds into her ears. She sat listening intently. I was so proud of her at being such a big girl. Her weight and height are in the 75th percentile. Her blood pressure was great as well as her hearing. The pediatrician talked to Kaitlynn about nutrition and her jobs around the house. Kaitlynn gladly answered her questions and told her about her birthday party. Kaitlynn's medical forms for preschool were filled out. When it was time to check out, Kaitlynn (as usual) had no problems asking for her cookie and sticker. She was not going to let them forget to give them to her! After the appointment we went over to Bread Co and treated ourselves to a special drink. Kaitlynn and MawMaw had a strawberry smoothie and I had an Iced Caramel. Yum!
