Happy Birthday Braydon!

Today is my Love's birthday. Happy Birthday to the best father, husband, and friend in the whole wide world! I can't imagine a better guy to live my life with. Seriously, I am so glad this man was born!!!!!!! We like the marker of time that birthdays are, and we have been loving doing it up big for K & O's birthday for the past 3 years, but the truth is that Braydon and I have never been big into our own birthdays. But... the boys sure are. As I'm sure is true for most kids their age, our birthdays are huge for them. Last night they could barely sleep with the anticipation of Braydon's birthday. Braydon chose pesto pasta and caesar salad for his birthday dinner and cheesecake with fresh strawberries for dessert. Kyle insisted that we have "number candles" on the "candle cake"... so we did. This was Meera's first observation of a b-day celebration. She was unimpressed and didn't even make it all the way to the candle cake before having to go to bed!
P.S. Part of the reason Meera was so pooped was because today she had her 2.5 month well-baby check-up (including 4... yes 4... shots, the poor thing!). On Braydon's 37th birthday his daughter weighs 13.07 pounds and is 24.5 inches long. She's in the 75th percentile for weight; the 95th percentile for height; and the 95th percentile for head circumference. For all of the developmental tests she's measuring as a 3.5 month old (according to our pediatrician she's "very advanced"... advanced or not we just think she's so darn cute).

She's already a month ahead of schedule...what if Meera grows just as fast as the boys did? And eats just as much?? Woah.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRAYDON!!
All the best. And I am with the boys on this one - a birthday IS a big deal!

P.S. My 8 month old had her check up and besides the hight she barely made it into the chart. We have some catching up to do.
