Snow and Crayons

Our First Snowfall! Not a lot of snow, but enough to put on snow gear and take a few runs down the front lawn in the sled.

She really wasn't thrilled. Even with Daddy playing in the snow too - our "city baby" yet again proved to be really unhappy when exposed to the elements.

This is more Emily's speed. Some paper and a handful of Crayolas make Emily a very happy kid.

Notice how she holds the crayon! Just like a pencil!

She spent most of the time putting the crayons back in the box upside down.

18 Month Checkup

We're now 31 inches long, weigh 21 lb 12 oz, and have a head circumference of 18 1/2.

That's about 25% for height, 50% for weight (finally!) and still 50% for head. We're getting to be more average.

Had four shots - for the first time, she connected the two together and after the first one, had to be held down. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree on that front (I was a TERRIBLE shot taker!). Finally got her flu shots (regular and Swine). No side effects!

She still has a VERY extensive vocabulary that seems to have just exploded in the last two weeks. On Thursday, she asked Mommy for panties instead of a diaper. I don't think she's quite ready yet, but bought some Elmo and Zoe panties anyway. She was so proud of herself walking around the house in them on Friday night!!!
