Ted's 40th Birthday

On November 14, Ted turned 40! We had a fun party at our house to celebrate. We had a ton of awesome appetizers, more drinks than anyone could count, and so much fun! Ted's Mom even wrote a sort of poem to recount all of Ted's milestones and adventures over the years. Congrats to 40 amazing years Ted!

Julie In New York

Earlier this month I took advantage of a mid-week day off and hopped on a plane to New York where two of my good friends live. I got to see Gina in Poughkeepsie and Kendra in Albany. I drove around New York and Connecticut quite a bit seeing friends in multiple locations. 

The highlight was Kendra and I took the train into New York City. We got to ride the subway, have lunch in the Upper East Side, go to St. Patrick's Church and hang out in the rain in Central Park.

Four Year Check-up

Maddy went to the doctor last month for her four year check-up. She did really well and boy has she grown. She is now 40.3 inches tall (in the 61st percentile) and weighs 36lbs (in the 59th percentile). That means she grew 3 inches and gained 5lbs since her three year check-up.

She got to wear a paper gown for the first time which looked so cute on her. Of course after the photo she decided she'd rather not wear it and was just in her underwear by the time the doctor came in (so much for modesty).

She had to get her flu shot at the end which did not go well even though we had been preparing her for the possibility and she had even watched a cartoon show about the main character getting a shot and being brave. Oh well, at least it's only once a year. We went and got ice cream after to celebrate!
