The Stats

Lola is now 15 months and definitely the leader of the pack when it comes to height!  She's so advance with her vocabulary too.  She will attempt to repeat just about anything you ask her to.  About 40% of the repeats sound familiar, the remainder are Lola Language, which we are trying to learn ourselves.  She has embraced sign language as the boys did and that definitely helps with the language frustrations.  Liam  and Lola are the best of buds because Gavin is at school 3 days a week.  Someone actually asked me if these two were twins.  She is so loving and sweet but definitely has a rough and tough side to her - all good things in a Hendricks girl :)

Weight 20.8 lbs = 16%
Height 32.48" = 96% (YEAH!)

Weight = 256 lbs = 89%
Height = 32.5" = 82%

Weight 23 lbs = 31%
Height 31.14" = 52%

Thanksgiving Feast

Gavin's transitional kindergarten class dressed up as Indians and pilgrims and shared a wonderful thanksgiving feast.  They've been learning all about the food groups and were able to pick something to bring from one of the food groups (fruits/veggies/protein/etc.)  Gavin chose bananas and blueberries.

Breakfast with Santa

It was a whirlwind weekend that started Saturday morning being the first ones to arrive at breakfast with Santa.  Gavin and Jason had to leave for basketball, but not before Gavin had a chance to tell Santa his wish list.  Lola was not a Santa fan at all, maybe next year.  She did love the horses on the sleigh ride though.

Happy Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful time celebrating the time for thanks together as a family.  It was even kind of nice outside so we were able to play a little bit.

Lola's 1 year stats

The family princess turned 1!!  And this giant is FAR from a princess.  She's rough and tough and tries every day to keep up with her rambunctios brothers.  If you ask us she does a really good job.  We're beginning to think she may be the athlete of the family...we'll see.  Either way we're so, so, so happy Miss Lola was added to the family, she has been the perfect addition!!!

Weight = 18 lbs (17%...had to question if she was a Hendricks)
Height = 30.63" (92%...confirmed she was a Hendricks)
Head 18.3" (88%...full of info to stay on her toes with those boys)

Weight = 24 lbs (70%)
Height = 30.5 (74%)

Weight = 21 lbs (55%)
Height = 29.5" (40%)

2014 Seattle 3 Day

This was our 6th year participating in the 60 mile challenge.  Seattle is probably our favorite city to do the walk in.  But the 2 times we've done it the weather has been phenomonal!!

We've already signed up for 2015 in Seattle and REALLY want others to join us this year.  The team of two is getting lonely.  Talking for 7 hours a day, 3 days straight for 6 years - we're running out of things to say to each other :)  If you decide you want to join us our team name is "because we can" look for it at registration.

Happy Birthday Gavin!!

He turned 5, and enjoyed everything about it.  We had a countdown on July 1st because he knew it was July and could hardly stand waiting for his birthday.  Every day he told us how many days until he was 5.  He's a still our sweet little boy even though he's growing up.  We had a fun day with friends and family!!

Gavin Update

Gavin is 4 years and 8 months now and had a HUGE growth spurt in the last month or so.  He comes close to the top of mom's armpit...he's only 4 how does this happen.  If we're lucky he'll get daddy's height!

Currently playing soccer and football, even though we're still seeing snow flurries.  We haven't really decided what he likes best; he's hard to read and still sometimes uninterested all together.  He loves to run fast so we think he's taking a liking to soccer...lots of running.

Gavin will be waiting one more year to start Kindergarten so the 2014-2015 school year he will attend transitional Kindergarten 3 days a week, full time.

We're looking forward to this summer and swim lessons and baseball!

The Stats

Lola's 6 month stats
Height 27.32" (86%) - taller than both brothers @ 6 months!!
Weight 16 lbs (37%)

By no means does this little girl seem like a 37 percent-er; she's growing like a weed and doing everything in her power to catch up to her big brothers.  She loves to eat and is really great about trying new things.  Pretty much whatever we cook, we just put in the food processor and she has the same thing: sausage and eggs for breakfast on this 6 month checkup day :)

Brother Gavin 6 months
Height 27" (68%)
Weight 19.25 lbs (77%)

Brother Liam 6 months
Height 26" (25%)
Weight 17.9 lbs (50%)
