Autumn at 14.5 Months

Autumn, here is what you are up to at 14 ½ months:

·         You started walking about a month and a half ago and have not stopped for a second.  You still let us carry you around some, but not too much.
·         You are very easy going and happy. 
·         You are attached to Mommy, but you go to everyone easily.
·         You love your Grandma Clarke and always reach out for her when you see her.
·         You LOVE books.  You always point to the book shelf and make me get down books to read to you, but then you only last 2 pages before standing up and starting to play with your toys.  I think you have ADD like your Mommy. (Daddy doesn’t think I have ADD, I’m just easily distracted)
·         You loved opening gift bags at Christmas.  You would pull out the tissue and then look in the bag and pull out the present with a huge smile on your face.
·         You still take 2 naps a day, but usually only 1 a day on the weekends.
·         You eat everything, especially bananas.
·         You can say “that” and “Dada”.  You don’t really say “Mama” in reference to me, but I know you know who I am.  Also, Daddy doesn't think you know any words, but we know he is wrong.
·         You weigh just under 20 pounds.  Not sure your height, but you have a checkup in a couple of weeks, so we’ll get more details then.  You do seem tall and thin (hopefully you will be like your Aunt Alli).
·         You mostly ignore Cooper and he does the same with you, although he likes to stand between you and Mommy to hog Mommy’s attention.
·         You have more clothes than any baby EVER!
·         You go to daycare Monday, Wednesday and Fridays and you stay at home with Grandma Clarke on Tuesdays and Thursdays and on days when you are sick.
·         You live in the house with the RED front door!

I could keep going, but if I did I might never stop.  You are a beautiful and happy baby girl, who is quickly becoming a big girl.

Beginning a Blog . . .

Ok, so I am finally jumping on the bandwagon and starting a blog.  Basically, this is just to keep friends and family informed about what is going on in our (and when I say our I really mean Autumn's) lives.

So, what is going on?  Well, today, 4 days after Christmas, I am back at work, Autumn is spending her day with Grandma Clarke (like every other Tuesday and Thursday) and Andrew is at home installing a new ceiling in our master bathroom.  Andrew is also overseeing the painters, who are painting our front door RED.

Autumn is also sick this week.  She is recovering from a double ear infection that she got during the Christmas holidays.  She is a little tired and not on her normal sleeping schedule this week.  Hopefully she will be back to normal by next week.

My plan is to keep this blog updated at least once a week.  (We'll see how long that lasts)
