15 Month Check-up

Hello everyone! The boys had their 15 month check-up on Thursday. It was a totally different experience than the last time we were there. While they were walking at their 12 month visit, they were not walking quite as well as they are now. However, they were very good boys while they waited in the waiting room and then while waiting for the doctor (who was about an hour behind because of a dentist appointment). Luckily, we brought some toys and snacks.

Now for some stats: Hayden now weighs 23 pounds and 8 ounces & is 32 inches tall. Carson weighs 21 pounds and 12 ounces & is also 32 inches tall (according to the nurse, but we think he is still a little shorter than Hayden). The doctor says they are long and lean and look healthy. That is always nice to hear! They weren't too crazy about being examined, especially Carson. He acted like they were hurting him pretty much every time they touched him. So, you probably know the shots were awful! However, Hayden didn't cry at all with his shots. It is so weird how they switch - one time Hayden will do fine and the next time Carson will do fine. I guess it just depends on their moods that day.

Some things the boys are doing now are walking/running, trying to climb, and saying a few words (not always understandable :)) like Ball, Bath, This, That, and of course DaDa. They can say MaMa, but they haven't in a while - I am starting to think they have forgotten my name :). They also love to have a fork or spoon in their hands when they eat, but they don't quite have the coordination yet to use them very effectively. They do try though.

I don't have many new pics, but here is some of what I have.

Carson didn't feel well at all after his shots on Thursday. He laid in the floor on a pallet with Phillip and went to sleep. Isn't he so sweet?

Hayden also enjoys the pallet...

Pretty much every morning the boys want me to open the front door so they can look out. They love to look out the door and to go outside every chance they get. As you can see, they also like to wear backpacks. Hayden looks like is headed off for school (it's way too soon for that!)

That is so sweet!! My girls live by the front door as well!! Thank goodness for storm doors so they can see outside. I can't believe how big they have gotten. I hope you guys are okay, and Phillip is doing better!
