Craig attended the parent meeting for Sacrament preparation this year for Helen. I'm not gonna lie; it is definitely weird to think of Helen having First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion this year. Something about that makes me realize my girls are all getting so big and grown up. Half of my kids will have reached this point. Just feels...weird is all.

You know what else feels weird? Having a daughter who looks like an adult. Nah, she still looks like a kid...but she's growing so fast! I measured her the other night and since April, she has grown 1.25 inches and gained 8 pounds. Got that? In 6 months, she grew another inch. Granted...Last fall, she grew that much in 6 weeks. But, still! So, here's the rundown:
July 29, 2012 -- Sarah was 58.5 inches (NOT even 5 feet yet) and 82.8 pounds
August 5, 2012 (just one week later, mind you) -- Sarah was 59 inches and 86 pounds
September 26, 2012 -- Sarah was 59.75 inches and I didn't get her weight
November 6, 2012 -- Sarah was 60.75 inches (passed the 5 foot mark!)
December 10, 2012 -- Sarah was 60.75 inches and 92.2 pounds (this was at Dr. office)
April 28, 2013 -- Sarah was 62.5 inches and 95.2 pounds
October 14, 2013 -- Sarah was 63.75 inches and 103.2 pounds
So basically in almost 15 months, Sarah has grown 5.25 inches and gained 21 pounds.
That, my friends, is what puberty can look like.
|Sarah likes to mess around with my phone while I'm driving, haha|

I think I need to start measuring Dani before she gets away from me!! Last year, on August 5, Dani was 70.8 pounds and 53 inches and then on November 13 (3 months later) she was 54 inches and 75.2 pounds. Sadly, I've been so crazy watching Sarah grow, I haven't noticed Dani and whether she has grown. I think I'll measure all the kids this weekend!

Another weird moment is realizing the "baby," Vincent, is in a "big boy" bed now. We dismantled the crib last weekend and moved the bunk beds to the boys' room for them to share. Dominic on the top bunk because he's not cray-cray and won't fling himself off after a very telling "Hey guys! Watch this!!!" Vincent is on the bottom. This is good, because he already fell off once. But he got back in there and went to sleep after causing a racket over it.
|Here is the boys' room -- Vincent's bed actually has Winnie the Pooh/Tigger comforter|
|The girls got side-by-side twin beds (don't match) and this is without their comforters, too|
|Gratuitous photo of the Spiderman comforter on Dom's bed :)|
