Quick Video

Sorry it's been so long since I put anything up...I have tons of stuff to put up. Now that Eóin has gone from walking to running I barely have time for a shower never mind blogging. Here are some videos we took of him at the mall play area when my mam was visiting. He loved pushing himself down the slide/bridge thingy :-) 

BTW - at his 12 months checkup he was 22.5 lbs and was 30 inches long. He is about 50% for both height and weight and 75% for his head (he definitely gets the fat head from the Caffrey side - sorry son :-) More room for brains!

Anyway - here are the videos

Eóin's First Birthday

Yay - Eóin turned one yesterday. Sorry I didn't put pics up then but Jonathan had his wisdom tooth pulled yesterday too so it was a busy day! He loves toddling around the house now and playing chasing and hide and seek. He can say thank you (well is comes out da-ku) and da-dee. He really doesn't know what thank you means - he just says it :-) He loves food - pretty sure I won't be using baby food for much longer...he would eat bread and jam all day if I let him (actually he is eating that right now :)
His check-up is on Tuesday so I will post more updates then.

To celebrate his birthday yeterday we went to Paradise Park - a great kids play place. He had a ball and totally wore himself out! Then we went to Culvers for another Eóin favorite, chicken fingers and fries and then some ice-cream :-) Here are some pics of the day.

I was watching the clock all day to take a picture of him at the time he was born and then I ended up missing it by a few minutes...oh well. Funny how one year ago he could do nothing for himself and exactly one year later he is feeding himself leftover fiesta lime chicken from Applebee's :-) So much changes in one year!

Birthday Party

We had Eóin's birthday party a few days early because 3/4 grandparents were in town this weekend. He got some lovely presents (most of them quite noisy ;). He was so funny with his birthday cake...he started off very polite and ended up cramming as much in as he could :-) Here is a little video of the day.

First Trip to the ER

Well...I guess it was bound to happen one day - I was just hoping it would not be quite so soon. Today, Eóin was toddling around great, going back and forth between me and the piano. On one of his rounds, he tripped and landed smack into the corner of the piano bench. He was screaming as I was watching a huge egg shape appear on the side of his head. After almost fainting, I called the doctor and Jonathan and off we went to the Emergency Room. Eóin was pretty happy because he got to play with crayons which he loves :-) He had to have a cat scan - the room was really nicely decorated for kids and had cool lights shining on the machine. Jonathan and I had spinny toys that lit up to keep Eóin's attention so he would lie still. He really did great! There was no fracture of the skull so we are home - just need to keep an eye on him and wake him during the night a few times to make sure he is okay. Then we will go the our regular doctor for a checkup in a few days. Please pray he heals quickly - he is ready to be back walking again - but mammy is not quite ready to let him go again! Here are some pics from the hospital that we took on our phone.
Eóin's Owie - this bump has gone down quite a bit since it first popped up!
Coloring in the waiting area
Waiting for the doc - so sad that they have to make baby hospital gowns!
Still wants to walk though - nothing can stop him :-)

One more thing that came from this event. We were sitting on the couch giving him a bottle before bed and he found the ice-pack I had been using earlier...he knew just what to do with it - He picked it up and put it on his was so funny that he remembered it!
