Chloe’s 2-Year Checkup

So, Chloe is definitely a third child.  It took me a month after her 2nd birthday to realize that we never took her in for her 2 year check-up with the pediatrician.  Then when I get there today, Dr. Yim tells me I forgot to bring her back after her 18-month appt to get her shots (since she was sick at that appt).  Oops.  Bad mommy.


Chloe did super well.  No crying at all with her vaccinations. 

Chloe’s “25-month” stats….

Weight = 28.5 pounds

Height = 34.5 inches


Here’s a picture of our Chloe – a total spitfire who can furrow her brow all morning long just for not getting the purple plate she wanted at breakfast.  Caleb and Caris, don’t even think about taking a toy from her lest you feel her wrath.  Chloe is a cutie, though.  Good thing for her!

Chloe’s 15 month checkup

Little Chloe got out of getting shots today.  Since she’s been exposed to chickenpox, we decided it was better to wait out the incubation period before hitting her immune system with the MMR or giving her the varicella/chickenpox vaccine. 

Length: 32.25 inches (90%)

Weight: 22 pounds, 5oz (40%)




“KANSAS CITY, Mo. — National Weather Service issues tornado warning that includes downtown Kansas City, Mo.”


So, we were planning to go to C&MA General Council this year, as we have with every General Council the last several years.  This year, we felt constrained by my school obligations and budget.  If we had gone, our kids might be experiencing their first tornado.  I guess God says it’s ok for us to not always have such excitement in our lives?

On a more serious note, we are praying for the many people in that area, and the multitude of Christian leaders and missionaries from our denomination who are currently facing the tornado threats.

Happy 3 months, Chloe

Chloe’s 3 months old today!  This mommy is so busy right now, but we have a bunch of pics on Chris’ camera that he got for his birthday.  Will try to download them in this next week?  Anyways, Chloe is a cutie.  She’s starting to sleep a little better.  She’s had a whopping 2 colds already – one which she has currently.  She loves checking out her hands and grabbing/pulling at toys.  And she has followed in the pattern of her siblings with massive drooling. And.. Chloe still has hair – a first for the Wong children.

Chloe at 2 months

I feel like these 2 months have gone by so fast!  Each kid seems to be growing up faster.  Obviously, that’s not true.  I just have less time to take it all in compared to when I only had Caleb.

Chloe got her shots yesterday.  Ouchie!  She cried the whole way to the doctor’s office and the whole way back.  We thought we had a car seat baby when she was younger, but she has proven that the car seat is not her friend.  *sigh*

Weight = 12# 5oz

Height =  22.5”








So true…


God, You have some type of sense of humor giving us moms only 2 hands.

What do you do when 100% of your household is crying?  Just like crisis triage…  Figure out who can even be helped and who’s most in need of help.  If they’re just walking wounded, move them to the safe yellow mat and run, mommy, run. 

OK, maybe not the last part.  Praise God He reminds us how we are so not self-sufficient.  May I learn to rely on God for everything, especially for the wisdom I need to raise my beautiful children.  May I laugh and enjoy this season of life a whole lot.

Chloe’s Already 1-Month Old

1 Month has gone by already!  Chloe’s now 10lb, 5.5oz and 21.5 inches long. 

Breastfeeding is going well.

Unfortunately, she’s not the sleeper Chris & I wish for, but at least she likes the Ergo baby carrier.

She has an adorable smile, and loves to look around at everything.



Here’s a picture of me with Uncle Eric.  He’s funny.  I like him.



Here’s a picture of me with my friend Paige at church.  She’s a cutie too.



Auntie Laisa helping my exhausted mommy out.  Caris still gets too close to me.



Here I am chilling in mommy’s arms.


Baby Chloe’s First Meal Out

We took my mom to Old Spaghetti Factory last night to celebrate Grandparent’s Day. 

Chloe enjoyed her first dining out experience by sleeping in her car seat… the whole time!  I think we may finally have a car seat baby.  Is this what babies do if they like the car seat?  Hope it stays this way.  It makes it so much easier to travel in the car when our baby is happy in the car seat.
