Couple of Updates & tons of photos

First of all - today is the last day to enter my giveaway by commenting on this post. Winner will be announced on Monday morning. Good Luck!

What is this you ask???? It's my daughter's STRAIGHT A Report Card!!! How 'bout them apples?? I'm so proud of her! Way to go Emma.
Malek's birthday Tuesday night was alot of fun. We started the evening off at Olive Garden, where he dined on Mac & Cheese, breadsticks, olives and giant cupcake-birthday cake. Here he is all dressed up ready to go.
Making his grand entrance... Olives....his new FAVORITE FOOD! Even figured out how to put them on his fingers all on his own.Sister was more than happy to help him blow out the candle.Finger lickin' good!

Very rare family photo of us all together.

Then Wednesday came and it was haircut and dr checkup day. First we headed to Cool Cuts for Kids to get Malek's hair trimmed up a bit. Not that I don't LOVE his curls, it's just I'm a little tired of him being mistaken for a girl. Didn't think it would bother me that much, but sometimes when he's obviously dressed in "boy" attire, it's makes me a little bummed, like I'm not doing my job good enough to make him look like a boy. Mainly I wanted to have his hair trimmed up on all sides so it matched. The sides and top grow at a MUCH faster rate than the rest of his hair. Now his hair is all the same and his bangs won't constantly be in his face!

This was Amanda who cut his hair and was so sweet and did such a great job. Malek totally loved sitting in the car.

Then we went to the doctor....dun..dun..dun... not.FUN.AT.ALL. This is Malek laying (attempting to) on the scale so the nurse can get his weight. Guess he's going to have to move to the standup scale next time.

Then he got 5, FIVE, F.I.V.E, 1-2-3-4-5!! SHOTS!!! WTH! One of which was the 2nd round of his H1N1. Now he's totally protected from the flu. I hope. Even though he's already had the Swine Flu - twice. He was a real trooper though. Couldn't bear putting his clothes back on him so he just rode home pantless, sockless and shoeless. He loved it. They must have been pretty strong, because he's been a little cranky the past couple of days. Then again, he did just cut his 8th tooth! Crazy I know!

So his final stats for his 1 year checkup:
weight - 23 lbs 8 oz
height - 30 1/4 inches
and as I said - 8 Freaking Teeth!

Take care wherever you are and have a great weekend! It's cold and raining here in the big state of Texas!
