Just Another Day At the Beach!

This weekend we headed to my grandma & grandpa's condo at the beach. Unfortunately my grandpa was out of town on business, but it was great to see everyone else; my Auntie Mel, Uncle Mike & cousins, Maddy & Mikayla came to stay as well!

We had lots of fun swimming in the pool & frolicking in the sand on Saturday; there's nothing like being on the beach in January! Gotta love Florida!

Saturday evening my parents noticed that I felt a tad warm as I was going to sleep. I woke up a few hours later & when I was checked on, I felt even warmer than before. By Sunday morning it felt like you could fry an egg on my head. But, since we have a perfectly functioning stove, we didn't fry an egg on my head... that would be weird. Anyway, my temperature was 103.5 so I was in no shape to go to church so Daddy hung back with me while Mommy went.

Sunday I slept on my parents most of the day, which I never do; that's always a sure sign that I'm sick. As I went to bed, it was decided that my dad would stay home with me on Monday so I could recoup before going back to day care since you can't get any peace & quiet there! Monday afternoon, my mom & dad decided that I should stay home one more day, so Mommy arranged to take off work today.

Today my fever was basically gone, but I was rather cranky. The doctor said I could have a reaction from the vaccinations for up to 8 days & it's still only been 6 days as of today. I also have a mild ear infection in my right ear as well as 4 teeth coming in. So it's no wonder I'm cranky; I have a triple whammy against me!

Anyway, I had a good day with my mom & you'll notice I'm wearing Crocs in the picture above. I had never seen these shoes before today & once I had them on my feet I did NOT want them taken off! When my mom had the audacity to remove them this afternoon, I walked up to her with the shoes in hand & demanded they be put back on!

Well, I hope you're all having a great week so far! Thanks for checking in on me!

15 Month Stats

Yesterday Daddy took the day off work so we could pay a visit to the doctor for my 15 month well visit. I had to have a couple of shots, but I'm a tough cookie, so it was no biggie.

My stats are as followed:

Height: 34" - 98th percentile
Weight: 28#, 6oz - 90th percentile
Head circumference: 20.08" - 100th percentile (as usual!)

So, since birth I've grown a foot & a half & gained twenty-two & a half pounds! Wow, I'm getting so big!

New Version of Me!

Since our camera is on the fritz & currently shipped off for repair, I thought I'd just update everyone & let you know what I'm up to & into these days (this picture above is from New Year's Eve). Here is what the 15-month old version of me looks like:

1) My favorite saying is now, "uh-oh." I mainly use it appropriately, like when I drop something (or even when I fart!), but sometimes I say it even when I do something on purpose; such as chucking a toy across the room or slamming my toy golf club into the dog dish, spraying water everywhere.

2) I love using sign language & seem to be picking up a new word every week or so. My vocabulary includes: More, drink, sleep, milk & bath. I use bath & more the most.

3) I still love watching my Baby Einstein videos & usually watch one in the evening as I'm getting dressed in my pjs.

4) I still sleep 12 hours each night; usually 7:30-7:30.

5) I have 12 baby teeth & four more (my canines/cuspids) are coming through now. That means that I'm done with getting my teeth except for my second molars. Check this chart to see what I'm talking about.

6) Nothing pleases me more than doing something my mom told me not to do. I usually laugh like a demon & do it that much more.

7) Sharing my food with the pets is awesome; Demps just got a quarter of my turkey sandwich this weekend & Casper vomited all over my parent's bedroom because of all the cheese I slipped him.

8) I love books, especially ones with flaps I can look under, touch/feel or books that make sounds. Typically, I bring a book to my mom or dad, turn around, plop in their lap & listen as they read. And by listen, I mean, turn the page while they're in the midst of a sentence.

That about sums up what I'm into these days! We'll see what next month brings!

"What's that, Mom? You don't want me to climb the stairs? Aw yeah! Can't wait to climb & watch that sucker run after me!!"

Santa, Baby!

My mom thought that this Santa kind of looked like me; we're both a tad bald & we each have blue eyes. The one difference? Santa doesn't drool! Oh, and I don't have a beard.

First Kiss of 2010!

This is a picture my Auntie Lo Lo captured of me & my girlfriend, Leah on New Year's Day. Here's to hoping that all of 2010 is just as sweet as this moment!

Cam Meets Ryanna!

Last week when we were in Illinois, I got to meet a very beautiful girl named Rhyanna! My mommy has been wonderful friends with Gina for a very, very long time & Rhyanna is Gina's daughter.

Don't mind me, Rhyanna, I get to know a person by studying the shape of their head!

And apparently Rhyanna gets to know a person by laying across their lap! (And no, our parents did not put us in this position!)

Time for a kiss!
