artist & athlete

welp.....dustin & i decided today that we have an artist & an athlete on our hands.  can you guess which of our girls is which?  

we went to the doctor today for adelyn's 2 yr well check-up.  yes, we're a little late (she is 2 yrs, 4 months) - but hey, we're blackburn's.  all went well....and we found out she is in the 75th percentile for height!!  who knew?  we've heard that you can double your child's height at age 2, and that is about how tall they will be as an adult.  which means molly will be about 5'2", and adie will be about 5'10"!!!  what?!?!  i must admit, when dustin and i figured the math on adie's height, and looked at each other.....we both kind of got excited.  she is really tough, really even-keeled about most everything, and easy to teach.....or coach. :)  and if she really is gonna be 5'10", we may just have an all-star setter on our hands!!  (i can't help automatically thinking about volleyball.)  we measured adie on our measuring wall for molly, and she is currently as tall as molly was on her 3rd birthday.  cool.

and then we decided we should probably just go ahead and encourage molly in her artistic/creative abilities.  she's too dramatic for sports (although i think she'd be a really good athlete), and she's just so good at singing, drawing and imagining!!  so that's really cool too.  

i'm so very proud of my girls.  they both bring so much joy to my world - i have no idea what i would do without them.  i'm loving spending time with them this summer...which makes me super thankful for my job.  thank you Jesus for my precious children!!
