Well I think it's time, once again, for an overall update on the Kordsmeiers! The girls had doctor appointments today, and they went very well. Ainslee weighed in at 26 pounds, and Ava was a near 2nd at 25 pounds. Ainslee was 35 inches long, and Ava as 30. They're both tall for their age, but Ainslee is average weight (50th percentile), and Ava is a little on the husky side ( >97th percentile). They're both doing great developmentally, crawling for Ava, running and jumping for Ainslee. They drew blood to test Ainslee for anemia, and we have to bring Ava back in about a month because her head circumference jumped so much (from the 80th to the 95th percentile). If it's still growing at that rate, they'll do a CT scan to check on the inside. The doctor said, though, that it's very likely that they just caught her at a growth spurt and all is well.
Layton is still doing okay trying to figure out about Konner. It's very hard for him to understand. I think my explanations of things have contributed to his lack of understanding though. For example, it's confusing him that I told him that heaven is high up above the clouds. When I said that, it was beautiful day with white fluffy clouds in the sky. Now that we're having thunder and lightening, Layton's a little more concerned for Konner's well-being. He has lots of questions about heaven: are there dogs there? are there toys for Konner to play with? does he want his mommy? I'm trying to do my best to explain it, but sometimes he stumps me. Sometimes I just have to tell him that I don't know. Layton is still VERY clingy to me, especially when it's time for me to leave him at Mrs. Joyce's house. It's hard for me to leave him while he's crying like that.
Friday my van got hit by a bus. Luckily, none of us were in it, and funnily enough, no one was in the bus either. I had parked behind the school because I had morning duty, the bus driver parked her bus and went in to clock in. Her breaks went out, and it rolled right in to my van! Some kids got off of another bus saying, "Mrs. Kordsmeier, that bus just hit a van back there! Cool!" It wasn't cool. I knew it was my van! DPS came out and did the report, they towed my van, and now I'm waiting on it to be fixed. I am driving a rental right now, which isn't half bad. It's a 2008 Explorer with leather seats and a sun roof that Layton has fallen in love with!
Trey and I are going to participate in the Fireproof project at church and the 40 day love dare. We're very excited...well I am anyway; I don't know that Trey is 'excited' but he's not against the idea. More on that to come...
