Brotherly love

This picture was too cute not to post. I love it when the boys are being nice to each other. Though those moments are few (got to blame it on the age) they are so precious. I just love my little cuties!

Andre had his well check up yesterday. Here are his stats:

Weight - 38.9 lbs or 17.6 kg (74th percentile)
Height - 41.5 in or 105.4 cm (75th percentile)

He also got his vision and hearing checked. Andre did great on the vision test. It was really cute to watch him cover his eyes and name the letters the nurse was pointing at. He did great and his vision is perfect 20/20 (which is better than most kids have at this age). He also had a hearing test, and once again he passed with flying colors.

The cutest part of the whole visit was Harper imitating and doing everything Andre was. When the nurse asked Andre to take off his shoes, Harper quickly dropped to the floor and started removing his shoes as well. I had to hold him back while Andre was getting weighed as he was trying to squeeze onto the scale with him. And pretty much the whole visit went the same way, when Andre was taking the vision test, Harper was trying to cover his eye and call out random letters. What a cutie!

Andre's Birthday

Andre turned 4 on the 29th!!! I can't believe he is 4!!! He is such a cute and smart little boy. He talks non-stop, loves to play pretend, loves his brother, loves to draw and color, he is getting really good at dribbling basketball, there are so many more things that my sweet little boy can do.
Ever since last year's party, Andre decided that his next one was going to be Jack Skellington-themed. For a couple of months right before this birthday he switched to Peter Pan, but ultimately stayed with hi original choice of a year ago. And so as he wanted, I made him a Jack Skellington cake.
I loved seeing Andre's face the first time he saw the cake. He grinned, turned to me and said: "I love you" and gave me a big hug and a kiss. That definitely made it worth the lack of sleep.
The cake had a chocolate ganache frosting, and there was a bit leftover. So first thing in the morning Harper found the bowl and licked it clean. He loves chocolate just like his Mama. :-)

We had quite a few friends show up at the party and I think Andre had a blast.

Pinata (no injuries to report :-)

Kids going crazy with the candy
Blowing out candles

Too many presents
