Fisher is 4! A Party, A Special Day, and a Checkup

Fisher turned 4 in June. Where have the years gone?! We celebrated the weekend before his birthday with a Thomas the Train party and a Paw Patrol cake. That's what he wanted, so that's what he got!

Isn't his cake amazing?! He loved it!

Posing before his party. He didn't want me to make him a special shirt, which was a little sad for me.

All the boys! Will we add another one to the mix next month?!

Covering his eyes while we got his present ready.

A new bicycle!

On his actual birthday, Fisher chose what he wanted to do. His first request was for donuts, so we went to Gibson's. The birthday boy got to pick whatever he wanted.

I think he liked it :)

This one was very happy to get his sprinkle donut.


His next request was a visit to My Big Backyard.

Last stop-pizza for lunch.

Then it was home for naps. He slept great after his busy morning!

Trying out his bike

Visiting the doctor for his checkup. This is the first year he didn't scream while being weighed. Progress! He weighed in at 31.5 pounds (10-25th percentile). We were so excited to finally break into the 30 pound range!

He was 3 feet 3 inches tall (25th percentile).

No issues with getting his blood pressure checked.

Getting his finger pricked.

What a face! He didn't enjoy it at all, but didn't fuss. He made up for that when he got his shot, though...

Waiting on Dr. Catherine. He's so big! Funny story-he had to pee in a cup, which he was supposed to do last year, but that wasn't happening. This year, it wasn't a problem. He went, I set the cup on the back of the toilet and we were washing our hands. Sullivan walks up to the cup, grabs it, and ends up spilling urine all over himself! I just had to laugh...

We are so thankful for this little boy of ours who is growing much too fast for my liking. I'll post more party pictures when I get them off my camera.

Swimming Lessons

The boys had two weeks of swimming lessons this year with Mrs. Julie. She works at their MDO, and they had lessons with her last year. Fisher was so excited! So excited that he walked in the pool and then jumped in the water without knowing if he could touch the bottom or not. He's going to be the death of me...

Sullivan loved the water, but was extremely hesitant about Mrs. Julie, which is not surprising. He wouldn't let her do anything with him, so I had to get in the pool with him every day. That coupled with making sure Fisher wasn't trying to dive in again made things a little crazy at times, but we managed.

It's a miracle he even let me get out of the pool while he was still in it...

We had a lot of fun and the boys learned a lot. We can't wait for next year!
