The Weekend Rundown

Well, this has been a busy weekend for the family. On Friday, I took Sara for her 4 month check-up (she is a little behind, not all my fault). So, she now weighs 15 lbs 3 oz and was 26 inches long. For her weight, she is below the 50% mark and for her height she is above 50%. I don't remember the exact measurement of her head, but when Dr. Jackson saw the numbers on the growth chart he looked a little disturbed because she was WAY up there. I said all the Cox's have big heads. I believe she was close to the 90% mark with her head. Other than that, she is perfectly healthy and doing everything she should be doing. She is rolling all over the place, sitting up for a few minutes at a time, she has started getting up on all fours and rocking and "talking" up a storm, especially when she is trying to go to sleep during Sacrament.

On Saturday, Cindy and I went Dania's (Levi's fiancee) bridal shower. It was very nice since I have never really met her before. One of the games that was played was how well does the bride and groom know each other. (Sorry, I don't know the technical name for the game.) I was very impressed at how well Levi and Dania know each other. All though, I have to admit, I was blushing at some of the answers that Levi was giving. Shame on you Levi!! And Dania was such a hoot! Everytime she opened one of her presents it was like she was a little girl opening Christmas presents on Christmas morning. She was just so excited over everything she got. Even all 3 of the crockpots she got!

Then, Sunday was a special day for the twinners, Cason and Cael. They turned 5 years old today!!! Can you believe it? I can't! I'm sure Cindy probably can't either some days. So, this evening we went up to Brent and Cindy's house for the boy's party. It was a lot of fun. It is also nice to see the Holman's. I think they fit in with the Cox family very well! The boys loved all the gifts they received, especially the legos. Oh wait, Austin enjoyed the boys legos!! And of course no party would be complete without cake. Not just one cake, but TWO cakes. So, after everyone had some cake and ice cream, it was time to play the new Cars game on the Wii. Poor Cason and Cael only got to play a couple of times before the uncles and their dad took over. That is what happens when you get the Cox boys together!! I almost forgot about the best present that was given. Great grandma Cox gave the boys recorders!! They were so excited! As soon as someone showed them how to use them, the entertainment for the party began. Anyways, it was a busy weekend, but a fun one. So, now I want to know who is going to come help me do all the laundry and the dishes that I should have done over the weekend, but didn't have time to do because we had so much going on? Or, you can just volunteer to take my kids for a while. Not everybody call me at once!!! Just kidding!

Thanks for the heads up on the Cox's genes for big heads :) Sara doesn't look like it though, she is beautiful!

I am happy to take your kids for the day, just deliver them to Rexburg!

Don't worry, Cami's head has always been in the 90th and her weight and height below 50 as well. At least she is a girl and will have hair to cover it! My boys had big heads too and when we buzzed them they looked like aliens. I will take your kids for a few days! Put them on an allegiant flight and I'll meet them at the airport!
