Our peanut's height/weight update

Well, this update is a little late, but I thought I'd update it none the less! :-) Last Thursday I took Sean in for his height/weight check with the nurse to make sure he is continuing to progress (we have to go every three months). Just for comparisson, here are the stats from our visit on May 15th:

Height: 29.5 inches (1.25%)
Weight: 18 lbs, 6 oz. (0.06%)

Although Jamie and I were SURE he weighed 20 pounds by now (probably not an ounce more, but at least 20 pounds), here was the results from our August 14th visit:

Height: 30.25 inches (0.89%)
Weight: 18 lbs, 15 oz. (0.04%)

So as you can see, there isn't a big change in the three months, BUT he has started walking/running/climbing/swinging/etc. a lot more. I'm sure if I was as active as him I'd be a skinny little thing too! :-)

The nurse said she would pass on the information to the doctor and that she would call if she was concerned about anything. Well, last night we got a call from the nurse (which of course made my stomach drop), but she was just calling to say that the Dr. thought everything was fine and she would see him in another three months (for his 2 YEAR check). She said that we would get us in if we had any concerns between now and then, but that he is still gaining/growing! I have to admit, his growth chart makes me giggle when I see it (compared to the "average" child), but hey, he's healthy!!!

We are getting ready to leave for Colorado a week from tomorrow to visit Jamie's family, so we're pretty excited about that. I'm sure we'll have LOTS of pictures to post from our trip. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

Little Drummer Boy

I wish you could all could have been there during these pictures! It was so funny watching him headbang and totally "rock out" on the drums! He would drum for a couple of seconds and then turn around and wait for Jamie and I to clap! At first I thought we were going to have a David Beckham on our hands with the soccer playing, then I thought a Mozart with the piano playing, but now...

Practicing with the spoon

Here are a couple more pictures of Sean using his spoon. Some days he is really good (and neat!) and others, well, you can see for yourself in the pictures! :-)

Enjoying the nice weather

This weekend was PERFECT weather, and this week is turning out to be even better! We spent a little time outside enjoying the day. Sean, of course, had to swing, but he also "helped" Daddy mow and attempted to ride his bike. His little legs just aren't quite long enough to reach the peddles, but he has figured out that he can go backwards. It's pretty funny!

Elaine and Rick

Tonight we watched Nick and Kyle so that Elaine and Rick could have dinner with some friends. Don't they look nice!!!


I was looking through some old video of Sean tonight and came across a couple of funny ones... This is from the 4th of July parade at my Sister's neighborhood. He thought he was big stuff getting to touch the firetruck!!!

Here he is having a good 'ole time in the bath!

The new "joker" is in town!

So I can't decide if Kyle looks more like the Joker or a rocker? What do you think???
