Florida Vacation

April 29th, 2008 by Mommy

Emily playing with the Big Boy toys at Aunt Jolie’s.

(15 months) Mommy, Daddy, and Emily took a vacation in late April to Florida. We spent a day with Aunt Jolie and the extended family. Then Emily traveled on to Miami with Grandma and Grandpa while Mommy and Daddy took a couple of days to visit the coast. For the last part of the trip Mommy and Daddy joined Emily in Miami for a couple days of play. Emily enjoyed her visit with her grandparents and didn’t miss Mommy and Daddy too much.

15 Month Checkup

April 17th, 2008 by Mommy

Emily is 15 months old and once again we are headed for the pediatrician. At this visit she weighed in at 18 lbs 6 oz. and 30 1/4 inches long. Over the last three months she is 2 lbs heavier and 1 1/4 inches longer. It is Mommy and Daddy’s hope that by the next visit she will have reached the 20 lb milestone. Emily was really good for her checkup except for letting the doctor check her teeth. I have to trick her to let me see her teeth and the doctor didn’t have any more success than I have. The doctor is smart and leaves the shots to the nurse. Emily got two shots and they were very traumatic for her, it is the first time that I think she knew something was coming and then got a shot. She cried really hard, but by the time we had gotten to the car she was calming down. Mommy was smart and brought her milk for after the visit and milk fixes most boo-boos. We will go back for another check up at 18 months.

Barn Dance Girl

This girl loves her chili, it's all over her grin!
Chili Grins abound!

Heather and Johnny with Emily

(15 months) Our church has an annual chili cook-off and barn dance at the barn of one of our church members. This year Emily and Mommy went to the event with Heather and Johnny. Emily enjoyed all of her yummy chili bites which it appears that she wore for the whole evening. She also got to accompany Mommy for half of the dancing until Mommy’s arm just gave out. Chili, barns, and dancing are fun!

My mother, aunt and brother are camping in Georgia this week, so Mommy planned a short trip to see them. Emily really enjoyed her day visiting with them.
