We had a fun weekend! Cooper gave Molly a Hello Kitty piggy bank that you get to paint yourself. Molly woke up Saturday morning asking to paint it. She LOVES crafts and she loves Hello Kitty so this was a hit! Thanks Cooper!
Rayna wanted in on the action so we let her paint with our magic paint pens. They only show up on our special paint paper so it limits the mess. :-)
Aunt Marie came for a visit on Saturday! We had a great time hanging out with Aunt Marie. Poor Rayna didn't get a lot of Aunt Marie time. Molly isn't very good at sharing her Auntie. I don't think she let Aunt Marie out of her sight all day.
Love this picture! Aunt Marie's head was supposed to be in this picture, but it didn't quite happen. Little wiggle worms!
Tonight we had a special Life Group because it was our friend Krista's 30th birthday! It must be so hard being 30! :-) Rayna had chocolate cake for the first time tonight. She thought it was pretty amazing!

February Friend Fun!
With all of the park trips we've been making, Rayna had learned how to slide. She backs herself down backwards and goes down on her belly. It is so cute and she just LOVES it. She will slide again and again as long as you let her. It's a great way for her to burn off some of her energy!

Our friend Scottie was in town and we got to hang out with her today. It was so great to see her! And we watched the Superbowl with our friends the McArthurs and the Wilsons. It was a good weekend!

Rayna had her 15 month check-up today. At 15 months, Rayna is 33 inches (95th percentile) and 23 lbs (50th percentile.) We recently made the decision to take the girls back to Dr. Twerdi. I liked our new pediatrician, but the last several times we saw her, we were at the doctor's office for THREE hours. That is way too long to spend with little children in a doctor's office. So we decided if we were going to dedicate so much time to our doctor's appointment, we might as well spend the time in the comfort of our mini-van and seeing the best pediatrician in the world.
I questioned my decision when we were sitting in traffic in Charlotte today, but ultimately I think it's a good move for us. It was so great seeing Dr. Twerdi! She said that we have a healthy, beautiful baby girl!
About eight or so years ago, I was in my apartment at college and fixed myself a snack of broccoli and cauliflower. Afterward, I had SEVERE stomach pains. Ever since then, I haven't been able to eat raw broccoli. Lately, it seems like I'm adding more and more raw vegetables to the "bad" list. One day last week, I had a chef salad for lunch and by that afternoon I was in terrible pain. So I finally decided that it was time to pay a visit to the doctor. Our doctor is great, but he is in Charlotte. I was looking for a more local doctor, and a lot of people said they loved Dr. Guthman, so I saw him today. The good news is that Dr. Guthman was really nice and very proactive. I'm going to have an ultrasound to rule out any issues with my pancreas and gallbladder. Then I'm going to see a gastroenterologist--so hopefully we'll get to the bottom of all of this pain. The bad news is that every doctor visit means a co-pay---ugghhhhh! I am very thankful to have health insurance, but those co-pays add up so fast!
So......that's your update on Mommy! Stayed tuned for more exciting news in the adventures of my gut!
