Everything Embry: October 12

Two Year Well Check

Embry had her 2 year well check on Tuesday (October 7) and was SO excited when I said we were going to the doctor. She wanted to bring along her doctors kit which was a huge hit with the staff. Everything went well, she's a healthy, happy little (big) two year old girl! She got a blood draw in her finger and they filled up three little viles of blood and she didn't even flinch! Crazy! She was quite proud of her band-aid. After nap that day when I told her we were going to see Eliot she got excited to show him her finger (which the band-aid was already off of). They unfortunately were out of the flu vaccine (guess there's a nationwide shortage and we go to one of the largest practices in Dallas) so we had to go back Thursday morning for the shot. I was holding down her arms and in her face and was shocked when the nurse said- okay all done! Again, she didn't even flinch when the nurse did the shot in her leg. Tough girl! 

I love having all her stats in one spot...

2 Months
Weight: 13 pounds 2.5 ounces (>95%)
Height: 24.5 inches (>95%)

4 Months
Weight: 15 pounds 9.5 ounces (93%)
Height: 26.5 inches (>95%)

6 Months
Weight: 17 pounds 14 ounces (88%)
Height: 28 inches (>95%)

9 Months

Height: 29 inches (93%)

12 Months
Weight: 22.0 pounds (70%)
Height: 31 inches (95%)

15 Months
Weight: 24.2 pounds (70%)
Height: 32.25 inches (95%)

18 Months

Height: 33.5 inches (93%)

2 years old

*I did a height predictor where you enter your two year olds- height, weight, gender, and parents' height and she's predicted to be 5' 7'' (and I rounded up to 35 inches) so we'll see! 

**I was 24.5 pounds (30%) and 33.75 inches (30%) at 2 years and wasn't her height and weight until 2.5 years old. I filled in the predictor for myself and it "projected" me for 5' 5'' (I'm almost 5'4'') 

Big two year old ready for the doctor!

This came up on my Timehop app this week- These were all shots of her at her first year well checks- 2 mo, 4 mo, 6 mo, 9 mo, 12 mo!

Proud of her shot

The Fair!

Wednesday morning Lauren decided to let Eliot play hooky from school and we headed to the State Fair of Texas for $3.00 Wednesdays! We all had so much fun and got there a few minutes before it opened and rolled into our driveway at exactly naptime- 1pm. It paid off as Embry took a 3 hour nap. It took everything in my power not to curl up and nap myself after the busy morning-but a midday shower was a must! It was SO humid! The week before Embry did NOT like the petting zoo at Sweet Berry Farm, but she warmed up very quickly to the one at the fair. She giggled every time the goats nibbled the food off her hand. There also was a cute farm exhibit where you walk through and get to do all kinds of farm activities like plant seeds, feed animals, milk cows, etc. Embry had no interest in the rides, but liked watching Eliot do a few. All in all we found free street parking, spent $3 getting in (Embry was free), bought $10 in coupons (which we used on food), and bought a $1 cup of food for the goats, so we spent $14 which is pretty good considering it's $17 per person just to get in other days of the week! I also managed to take my good camera and get some cute pics!

Who needs a double stroller when Eliot can sit on the cup holders ;)

The original Ergo carrier ;)

LOVE Embry's eyebrow in this one hahah

E was clinging to Miss Lauren for the first few minutes 

Blonde moment, Embry ;)

Planting seeds

Picking vegetables 

We ate lunch and rested in a shaded area and the kids had a blast twirling and twirling between bites of food, hah

And resting ;)

And more twirling 

A neat train exhibit in the green house had both kids mesmerized

"Good" Camera

I've tried to get out my good camera at least once a day this week. I just forget how much better the quality is, but the iPhone is just so darn convenient! Love these snapshots of our girl! She could play in our backyard! And I love that! 

This is one of Jacob's favorite faces on Embry- her "I'm trying not to smile" face 

Saying "Oh no!" as she sent leaves down her slide 

Throwing leaves 

Very into her drawing!

Our firstborn looking so pretty! 

Raining leaves!!

Talking to her Papa, as usual! Always talking to Papa on the phone! 

Sliding at sunset 

Lovey girl!!!

Birthday Gifts!

E got so many great gifts for her birthday and in a week has already gotten so much use out of them! 

Dumbo is now a "must have" in the crib! She loves it! 

Bath crayons are a must now at bathtime!

New Halloween Minnie Book! In the book Minnie's niece is Little Bo Peep! (Which is what Embry is going to be) 

New Crayola Color Wonder Pad

Doctoring one of her Little People

New electronic Barbie toothbrush =)

Her new Minnie dress up doll and clothes are a huge hit- and best part- I found a Minnie with no clothes at a thrift store for $0.25 months ago and the clothes fit that Minnie too! So fun! 
Using her doctors kit on my toes...

Doll baby carrier

Her dress up bear =)

Coloring the backs of her Thank You Notes 

Not sure what I was thinking but I let E put on the stamps, so if you get a thank you note with the stamp upsidedown or hanging off, you'll know why ;)


She loves sitting at her "vanity" 

Trader Joe's

Thursday my Timehop app showed that 2 years ago we were headed to the pediatrician for her 1 week check-up. I just HAD to recreate the picture, yellow polkadots and all, since we were headed to get E's flu shot that day! 


Big news! Embry peed in her potty chair for the first time this week! We made a huge deal out of it....but shes not done it again, despite lots of bribery... boo! Baby steps! 

She loves our new pumpkin!

Playdate with our MOPS friends. Brief moment where E was the only one on the swing set 
Smiley eyed girl!

Saturday was a cold and dreary day and we baked "blonde" fall brownies with our neighbors

So happy to find a little snail
