15 months

Joey you still never cease to amaze us with what you can do..

at 15 months you:

Weigh 26lbs 14oz

Are 28" in height

Had your last "baby/kid shot" until kindergarten -Hurray!-(except for flu shots)

Love to open and shut drawers and have added the skill of putting objects into the drawer..closing it..and looking at me and babbling something that sounds like.."I dunno??" which I respond.."Where did it go?"..and this goes on for awhile until you pull it out of the drawer and we both SQUEAL really LOUD!!! :)

Grandma J says you eat like a truck shovel in what you like the most and then eventually eat whatever is left as well.

You are teething again..must be the incisors this time..Ibuprofen every night at 6 helps..A LOT

You want to walk around everywhere..forget a stroller or a car seat..this dude wants to WALK!

You carry around a stuffed animal (big or small) by its one arm or scarf and it is SO CUTE..if not a stuffie then a love blankies and will pull them down off a chair if necessary and then snuggle your cute little face into it like a pillow.

You love to look at books and will often pull out a basket of them and just page through all of them..nice quiet time for both of us!

Your bedtime is 8 pm on the dot. LOVE THAT!

You still love your bottles of milk..we know you should be done with them by now..but you love them so much and they contribute to the easy bedtime at 8pm!

When I pick you up at 4 from smile and waddle over to me right just melts my heart everytime! )esp when the pom pom on top of your hat waddles along with you..

You LOVE to eat: goldfish crackers, cheese, toast, peaches, bananas, bologna, bitterb buscuits, eggs, peas, green beans, apple juice, pears, chicken, pancakes, waffles and Cheerios!

Your brother is not very good at sharing with you and you have learned how to groan and cry until you get your way..or I have to step in a break it up.

You took a break from climbing the stairs..but now like to do it eveyday or night at least once..and you can go all the way up our full flight (about 15 steps) from basement to main level.

Which leads to your sudden need to climb on everything! You climb up your brothers green chair to get onto the couch..
You love to open the dishwasher door and then climb in..your bro never did this! LOL!

Thanks for the laughs and all the love buddy..we love you !

Spaghetti Supper at IC

Tonight we went to the Catholic Schools Week Spaghetti Supper at my old grade school IC in Columbia Heights. G & G Z came with us. After we ate and had a meeting with Clifford the Big Red Dog we walked down to my old Kindergarten room so Jack could see.
It was a lot smaller than I remembered :)

Saturday adventures with Mamma

HMMMMMMMMMM..what to order this time?????

My mom and I took the boys to IHOP (yum pancakes!) and Underwater Adventures at the Mall of America..It went pretty well..Jack thought the fish & sharks were pretty cool and I was entertained as well.
Joey was a trooper having to be in his stroller for such a long time..

Mamma bought them each a suprise at the gift shop...Jack had to have this shark hat
and Joey especially loved his Sharky the must be the bright blue color and sharp teeth! LOL

But the best part of all was just spending time with Mamma Joan...

Happy New Year!

I went all out and bought a $7.97 fun pack at Cub Foods to help us celebrate our 7:43pm countdown to the new year!
Jack just couldnt wait until 8pm.

Jack loved the whole costume thing and even Daddy participated..yeah Daddy!

I had bought the fixings for ice cream sundaes but the 4yr old crashed before we had a chance to make them...that is what happens when you dont take your nap!

Grandma J had been down playing with the boys all day and they had a great day!

We are looking forward to making more memories in 2009..

Non's word for 2009 is SIMPLIFY.
