Fun To Be One

Monday, October 18th, 2010

EP is officially a toddler now, whether he actually toddles or not.  He received his vaccinations today and is not a happy camper.  He has gained 1.25 lbs since his last appointment.  He now weighs exactly 18 lbs. and is 29 in. tall.  He seems to be in all around good health. 

His first birthday was sweet and fun for our family.  Mommy made a carrot cake with cream cheese icing and EP Loved it.  He pinched the icing and fed it to himself until he got down to the cake then he pinched the cake until he had eaten about1/3 of his little baby sized cake.  He received an adorable barn with animals to play with and every baby’s favorite “new clothes”.  He has such a funny personality and dearly loves to play with his big brothers. Happy birthday to my baby!

At Last!

EP finally, broke a tooth through this week.  It looks like our days of gummy smiles are almost over!  I know he will look entirely different with teeth.  He will also be celebrating a birthday soon and we are very excited about that.  It is a little sad to think that our littlest member will no longer qualify as baby.  He is not yet walking though he is thinking about taking his first steps.  It would be very exciting to see that happen before his birthday.

IC is loving preschool and must be a different child at school than he is at home.  Daddy and I were worried that he would be to shy in school however, the opposite seems to be true.  I believe that part of this is from his older brother’s influence.

OD is reading.  I was very excited the other day when he picked up a book and began to read it to EP.  He still loves Kindergarten and tells us daily of his adventures, which mostly center around the playground.  Our first real “parent teacher conference” is next week.  I am interested to see what his teacher has to say.

Off To School!

IMG_2925 Here are OD and IC ready for school!  It’s been fun watching IC learning and making new friends.  OD is learning all sorts of new things, too!  Kindergarten is very different from PreSchool.  But he’s ready for the challenge.
