Anyway, I was just being my pleasant self and when the nurse called my name, I happily followed her down the hallway, holding Mommy's hand. I even walked into the exam room as if it were Disneyworld. Mommy undressed me and walked me over to the exam table. It was at this point that things made a turn for the worse. I knew exactly where I was and what they were going to do to me!
I was measured and weighed...red faced and crying the entire time. 22lb. 8 oz (55th %) and 30 1/4" long (45th %) were the results. A whole half pound weight gain in 3 months - about a pound in 6 months. No wonder my nicknames have gone from Chunky Monkey and 'Lil Chunk to Munchkin, Munchie, and Peanut. Mommy guessed my weight right on the nose, and was actually happy I had a gain to show for myself at all! The doctor said that my weight was bound to level off one of these days and based on how active I am plus my Mommy and Daddy's physical stature, he's not surprised.
Dr. B examined me and said I look wonderful. He was floored by my vocabulary (both verbal and signing) and said I have perfect form to my walking. Then he and Mommy tried to have a conversation, but couldn't hear much over my 95 decibel wailing. I just kept crying and saying/waving "bye bye". I just wanted to get out of there! But first Mommy needed to address her one concern (vaccinations). I sort of settled down during that discussion because I had a feeling I might like the end result. And I did. I only had to get one shot...all others were delayed for personal reasons! YAY for me. The DTaP wasn't so bad and we were immediately out the door. Mommy made me a paper boat while we were in the exam room and I spent the car ride home decorating it with stickers the nurse gave me. The horror is now a distant memory, though Dr. B says to expect much of the same at my 18 month appointment. I guess 15 and 18 month appointments often go like this. OY!
Well, I have some visitors coming this weekend so it's going to be another busy one. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Now, Mommy, you can relax and have fun with Daddy in Hawaii. Bring me back a dolphin, please!

On Saturday, Daddy and I spent the day together while Mommy and Emily went...yup, you guessed it...shopping. :) I am SUCH a Daddy's girl and love it when I have time all to myself with him. We play and dance and he tickles me and reads to me and feeds me really messy meals!!
Daddy and I also went to the club together. He worked out and I played with my friends in the Kids Club. Then, our friends, Kate and Anthony, came to visit me in the afternoon. That evening, Mommy and Emily came home and I couldn't wait to see all their purchases. Mommy got a couple things for me but they're for Easter so I wasn't allowed to see them. Instead, I played dress up with one of Mommy's new scarves.

Disclaimer: We do not encourage this type of behavior in our house. But this morning (after turning her back for 3.2 seconds), Mommy found me on top of my table. Because she wanted to see just how I got there and get it on video she pulled out the video camera and watched me do it again.
And that was the end of that. Mommy showed me how the table was supposed to be used. Like tea parties, for example.
Here we go again...another "sh" ending word! I say it right at the beginning (so pay attention!) and then the rest of the video, Mommy tortures me by trying to get me to say it again when all I really wanted was those darn goldfish!
Mommy is going through some older video and finding all kinds of fun stuff. Here I am playing with my Christmas cards. I play with them every day...it's one of my favorite things to do! I think Mommy is going to keep them in my toy cabinet until this Christmas because it keeps me busy for so long!

Bubba * (signs dog)
Other words that I can sign but not quite say:
I almost forgot to tell you...my favorite phrase is "who's that?" Every picture I see, I point to and ask "who's that?" It's hilarious!

I bet you can't guess what the theme of the weekend was. I'll give you a hint....
It involved some of this cuteness....
...and this sweet thing.
Good guess, but it had nothing to do with our Mommy's posing us in front of the big teddy bear...
...or me refusing to take off the hat that just a month ago I refused to wear!
I promise only a small portion of the weekend was spent with me and Noah opening the gigantic Valentine's Day card from Gammy and Poppy....
I bet you thought we spent all weekend putting my bows on Bailey, didn't you? Nope, sorry...wrong guess again!
