Well child check up

Aidan had his 6 year well child check up today. He is a whopping 51 pounds. He is over 75% for height and weight. He is super healthy and doing well. The best thing about 6 year checkups...NO SHOTS! Aidan remembered that from his 5 year check up he is already counting down the years until he is 11 and has to have shots again.

Our little sweet pea got weighed while we were there too...She is topping the scales at 15 pounds and 24 inches long. In under 6 weeks she has gained a pound and a half and one inch. Wowee! I knew she had a growth jump a week or so ago. That puts her about 20% for height and 70% for weight.

Today is the last day of school so Alayna and I are picking Aidan up as my tenderhearted boy is SO worried that he is going to cry when he hugs his teacher goodbye that he doesn't want to ride the bus (he is sure the kids will make fun of him. Bless him, he is sweet.

(later that day...) we picked Aidan up after field day. He was so brave he hugged Mrs. Gordon goodbye and didn't shed a tear. Of course she and I cried a few for him as we said our goodbyes. She has been a huge support to our family this year. We love you and will miss you Mrs. Gordon! We are already praying that his 1st grade teacher is as great. Aidan is already praying that Alayna will also have Mrs. Gordon!

Aidan's favorite thing about field day was launching a chicken. I am not sure what that was all about and sorry that I didn't get there earlier to get a picture of it...
Have a great and safe Memorial weekend.
