When we were leaving the movies, we came across these cardboard cutouts.

This little cutie has had us really worried these days!
Two trips to the ER, a bladder infection, more than six Dr. visits, six urine samples, a catheter, blood draw, two ear infections & a high fever a few days every week all since the beginning of January! The sad part is she still isn't all the way better...she's on antibiotics right now. I'm hoping this is the end of her sickness. It has been so scary!
Tyler helped cheer us up when he came with us on one of her visits....
He kept us laughing! He said, "Mom take a picture, the dinosaur is eating me!"
Sophie is such a brave kid though, it really surprises me that she doesn't totally freak out when we go to the Dr.'s now. We were there on Sunday and she was actually telling the Dr. what to check. She said, "Are you going to do this to my leg?" Then she pretends to hit her leg to check her reflex. Then she said, "You didn't check my heart beef?" (that's how she says, heartbeat.) Then the Dr. let her listen to her own heartbeat. When we were about to leave she said, "You didn't listen to my back."
I think we might have a future "Dr. McStuffins" in our house!
In between being sick she is a busy girl!
She is always dressed up as some kind of princess...
One of her favorites is Anna, from the movie Frozen...
She was so happy when Libby fixed her hair just like Anna's...
It looked pretty cute!
Her blood work came back & it was all normal. That was such a relief to me!
It makes me a nervous wreck to see my "little shadow" sick all the time...
I'm hoping the rest of the year is full of good health!!
Zack & Tyler both failed their eye test at school this year.
We went in for their appointment & it looks like Tyler will be wearing glasses now.
Zack is borderline & will probably end up with them pretty soon.
These two are so cute...
They both had their eyes dilated as part of their exam!
Zack had to wear these for a while...
Here is Tyler with his new glasses...
He's finally like Harry Potter!!
Zack was chosen as the "Chief Example To Others" by his teacher for the month of December!
He is just a great kid!
Here he is receiving his award from the principal...
I love that you received the award for the theme of "Respect" because it is a quality that seems to be dwindling in our society.
I'm so glad you are respectful to adults & your friends. It will be a great quality to keep throughout your life!
We love you!!
Zack played again this year with almost the same team as last year.
It is getting more intense this year!
I'm always a little surprised at some of the aggression from parents & players.
It's kind of sad to me that it goes from "fun" to a little "crazy".
Zack had a great coach & some really good kids on his team.
They improved a lot this year!
We had quite a few games that were intense right down to the last minute!
This is still Zack's favorite sport!
This was Tyler's first year playing & he loved it!
It was fun to have his friend Nash on the team...
He always had fun playing...
He always had a smile on his face...
Libby caught this "action" shot on my phone...
He had a great team with a nice coach...
Believe, Dream, Inspire...
This was the theme this year for the reflections contest. Libby entered a drawing & won an award at school & then was part of the regional level of the contest.
We are very proud of her!
This is a part of her statement:
"My drawing is showing that you'll reach a point where you get where you want to be, and you'll be able to look down on everything you've done and see the progress you've made. It will feel wonderful! Then you find a new mountain to climb."
Good Job, Libby!
I'm consistently amazed with all you have accomplished...Keep up the good work!!
