Sorry it's been so long since my last post. The flu bug has hit our house in the last week or so... We've all 3 had it and are hoping that we've gotten it out of our systems for the winter... It was no fun! Really made us appreciate all of our family who was willing to step in and help out with Evan while we were under the weather....
Evan has had his 15 month check-up with his pediatrician since my last post (even though he is really almost 16 months old).... Our little munchkin weighed in at 27 pounds, 14 oz (80th percentile), 32 inches (75th percentile) and his head is 19 3/4 inches (100th percentile- just like his daddy!)... The doctor says he is very healthy and doing wonderful! Here are a few stats on the little man and what he's up to these days...
*He's toddling all over the house and loves to explore new places and things!
*He still loves his toys- although he sometimes tires of them and wants to play with all of the things he's not supposed to have (just like any other kid his age!)....
*He absolutely LOVES books.... He loves to flip through the pages himself, but has started to carry a book to you and climb on your lap and ask to be read too... It's too cute!!
*He knows several signs and uses them regularly (more, eat, please, and thank you)
*He has started to say a couple of words although they're not always very recognizable!
*Although he doesn't talk too much yet, he knows LOTS of words that we say and understands so much (even more than we sometimes realize!)
*He's starting to throw little tantrums and let us know when he's not happy with something- we're wondering if we're going to have a stubborn little guy!!
*He loves to give hugs and kisses (and not just to us, but also his stuffed animals)
*He still takes a pacifier during his naps and nighttime, but we'll be taking that away soon (please pray for us- we know it won't be easy!)
We have been constantly reminded this Christmas season how important family is and how blessed we are to be surrounded by such wonderful family and friends... We pray your families have a joyous Christmas..... Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
