The girls attended their first chiropractic back adjustments last week and so why not just take all three at once and save some time?! We loaded up and headed over to where our fellow twin mom also works and let the girls get those growing bodies adjusted.
Harper could NOT stop laughing throughout her turn. I mean full on giggling and she was a great sport, following instructions and holding still when asked. Reagan remained a bit wiggly but overall followed directions as well, randomly giving up a giggle here and there. Emerie definitely displayed her love for her eye doctor more than any other, giving Doctor Hanifen a run for his money and refusing to hold still.
The contained room was full of fun, chiropractic things (like an exercise ball, neck pillows, a spinning chair and a decorative water fountain) that made for great entertainment. The whole “event” lasted a mere 20 minutes, in which you could definitely hear the bone creaks (bone creaks) that each kiddo created during the correct twists and turns by the doctor. All three definitely benefited from the adjustment, and he gave Emerie a few extra moment to address her growing pains, that seem to reside in her legs at the moment.
Everyone had a blast and both parents survived the ordeal. At this age I’m not sure triple doctors appointments are the best choice but they do save time. By the end of the appointment, this is how excited the girls were to be there.
Nothing else too crazy is happening over here this week. The girls are embracing their inner kittens and crawling around the house meowing at each other, quite constantly and it brings them much enjoyment! In the car…I can’t say that is as enjoyable for the parents!
We had a fun girls night while dad went out to throw axes for “dads gone wild”. It was a fun night at home after a very busy work day (in my real life office!). We are starting to get out and about a bit more and wishing the weather to warm up faster than it wants to!
The last week or so Emerie is in an epic funk over wearing her glasses at night. Everyday is an epic battle for patching and actually wearing her glasses and now nighttime is exactly the opposite argument. She demands to wear them in her bed and is furious at any explanation that involves their removal. A couple nights I’ve simply given up and sneakily pulled them off her face once asleep. In addition, she is quite the exaggerator and will comment things like I have a HORRIBLE owie, Mom, and then shows a minor knee scrape under her pants.
Harper is now using the wording “inie meenie minie mo” to make daily life choices and it’s hilarious. You know, picking out underwear or what marker to choose for her picture, all different things! The high heel and dress shoe obsession continues and she constantly sneaks outside to play in the wet grass and snow. A few minutes ago it was ballet slippers.
Reagan is on her usual coloring kick and has been helping me color the 3D Easter house to perfection. I can’t wait to show it off, if we ever finish it! Her biking skills have improved since last fall and she now zooms down the street with Harper on the balance bikes, not quite obeying the stop at the stops signs yet but getting better.
And now I’m off to stuff Easter eggs! ❤
