15 months!

Yesterday we went to the doctor for Eóin's 15 month check-up. It was not fun :-) The doctor didn't even have to touch him before he started screaming. Mind you he was sick but I thought it was kind of funny that the doctor tried to distract Eóin by turning on his little light and as soon as he did Eóin let out a blood curdling scream - like you can't trick me mister!

Besides having a little viral infection he's been down with this week he is doing well. He is in the 30% percentile for weight (which if anyone saw how much he eats they would be shocked that this is so low!), 60% for height and 75% for brain size (fat head :-)

He is really turning into a character. Hasn't picked up too many new words lately, in fact he seems to have forgotten half the ones he used to say! He does however say "Jesus" when I ask him who is on the front of his Bible - so cute. Funny he can recognize Jesus and still won't call me mamma! He laughs every time we get him to say it - stinker.

He understands most things I tell him during the day. He goes to his room when I say we need to change his diaper, and RUNS to the kitchen when I mention lunch or snack :-) He runs the fastest when daddy asks if he wants a bath. I need to get that one on video. It's so funny! He still loves to help me with EVERYTHING I do. He puts daddy's stinky socks in the laundry basket in the morning (although once he threw them in the trash), he loves to sweep up and his favorite thing to do is help with dinner - especially stirring!

There is never a dull moment around here these days :-) I posted some pics on my facebook account so if you haven't seen them, I put links to my photo albums below.

That's all the news around here for now :-)

That's fun Karen - looking forward to seeing you all soon.

First of all, 75% for head circumference is not a fat head. Ben wasn't even on the charts until his 2 year check-up!

And Matthew never said "Mamma" either. That was his word for more. I just had him start calling me mommy, and that worked.

When are you guys going to be here? We have Mii's done for Karen and Eoin (who is wearing a cute green hat.) We're waiting to play with you!

I showed my mom the baking album and referred to you as "one of my old roommates--the one from Ireland."

My mom responded with, "Oh, Karen? We met her. She was so nice."

Obviously, you made an impression. :)
