15 Month Stats

This big boy above is 15 months old today! Where has the time gone? Doesn't seem like this is the same boy I was cradling in my arms just a year ago.

He went to his well-child check-up today. Here are his 15 month Stats:

Weight: 30lb 4 oz (over 100th percentile)
Height: 32 1/2 inches (88th percentile)
Head: 19 inches (80th percentile)

Doc thinks he's doing great! He stood on the big boy scale and got measured with the big boy height measurement against the wall. When the nurse came in to give him his shots, she took the cap off the needle and he saw it and hit the nurse. Haha, that's my boy. I ended up having to hold his arms down because he was going to do whatever he could to not get jabbed. But he did well. He cried a tiny bit then was fine as can be after those spongebob bandaids went on. He waved bye bye to the nurse over and over again...and we were out the door!

Words he Says: mama, dada, dog, look, hi or hiya, bye, no, door, what, ow, gaga (grandma I'm assuming because he says it when he hears my mom talking)

Things he can do: Loves to dance, drum, waves hi and bye, gives high fives, plays like an indian (saying "ahhhh" while drumming his palm against his mouth), points, claps, among many other things...I'm sure.

Unfortunates: He can throw the biggest baddest tantrum I've ever seen. And he's very stubborn. He will throw a tantrum for 10 minutes, if necessary. Also if you tell him no, take him away from the situation, smack his hand or bottom (not too hard, of course) doesn't work. He will go back over and over and over and over again. He'll even be quivering his lip or whining from the discpline he just received, and still do it again. He doesn't care. He is very, very stubborn. But most of that attitude, although I hate to say it, comes from me. I guess he does have SOME part of me since it seems, look wise, he is all of his daddy.

Back to Reality....

Image and video hosting by TinyPicToday we came home from our nine day vacation. I worked overtime on nightshift. Not a fun way to end vacation. But I have many stories to tell about, and it'll definitely have to be broken up into a few posts.

The jist:
30th: Drove to Josh's parent's house after work (got there at 3am)
31st: Swam in the pool, lounged, Ate Pizza & Cheesecake for Josh's 27th Birthday
1st: Omaha Zoo
2nd: Swam
3rd: Swam
4th: Drove from Josh's Parent's to My Parent's (7 hours of driving--not including stops, so more like 8 hours)
5th: Took Gabe to clinic for ear infection, just 12 days after the stop of his last antibiotic...yay for ear   infections.NOT. Drove to Houston, MO to the cabin we stayed at for our annual family float trip.
6th: Gabe's first float trip--5 miles
7th: Drove Back to my parent's house
8th: Drove home....came in to work night shift.

It was a busy, fun vacation BUT we are glad to be home. Only 1 month & 1 week left until our "I Do's" and so much to get done. It'll be nice to have a few days to just ourselves. Being able to do what we want to do, and not worry about anyone else.

A post will soon follow about Gabe's first trip to the Zoo. Stay tuned!
