16 Months and Thanksgiving

Hello everyone!  I'm 16 months now.  Don't I look serious?  Mommy made this hat for me...just in time for winter too.  Although it doesn't seem like it here, I like wearing hats.

I'm such a character.  Here I am eating a Hawaiian roll.  So silly!

Here I am at the basketball playground. 

Check me out.  Elliot put the glasses on me and I kept walking around the house with them on.

 Time to get into my ride.

Why all these pictures of Julia? I wondered the same thing.  But it's probably because I've been moody lately and would shy away from the camera.  Not this time though.  My buddy Alex came over to play and we had fun.

No, I'm not trying to get on the bike.  This is as far as I can manage to get onto this chair.
 Mommy and Daddy took us to watch the movie Frozen.  I don't know if it was any good.  Mommy thinks it was good, but she was busy chasing me around, so she's not entirely sure.  Daddy doesn't know what happened at the end because Elliot got scared so they had to leave the theater.  Needless to say, Mommy said it'll be a LONG while before they take us to the movies again.  I don't see what the problem is.  I like yelling "DAAADDY" while in the dark theater.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Daddy took some pictures of us when we went to the mall to take a picture with Santa.

We tried to take a picture together, but it didn't work.

 I really don't know what Julia's problem is.

 I guess I'll just take a picture by myself.

 My problem is that I want to be walking around.  Look at how happy I am now!

 We entertained ourselves at the mall though.

Julia's such a copycat.

Back at home, Mommy took this picture because she was able to put most of my hair up in a ponytail.  My hair sure is getting long.

We hope you enjoyed this month's blog!

15 months, Mommy's birthday, and Halloween!

Hi everyone.  It's been a long time.  Again, Mommy wanted to wait until after I went to my 15 month check-up before posting.  I am now 21 lbs, 11oz (57th percentile) and have grown 2.25 inches to 33" since my last check up 3 months ago!  I moved from the 93rd percentile to the 99th percentile in height!!  The doctor was super surprised and told Mommy to keep me rear facing in my new convertible car seat as long as possible (preferably age 2), but given my length, to try to do it at least until 18 months.  I'm not sure I'm fond of my legs being bent, but I guess it's ok for now.  Mommy checked her records...I am an inch taller than Elliot was at the same age (though he weighed 2 lbs more).

It was Mommy's birthday this past month.  Happy birthday, Mommy!

Mommy took us to a pumpkin patch.  It's hard to get both of us to look at the same time.

While Elliot played in the jumpy houses, Mommy got this picture of me. 

Uncle Jon funny came to visit us.  I really like him.


I was about to take a nap so Mommy took the rubber bands off my hair...that's why I have crazy hair.
I some times grab Elliot's hat and wear it around the house.

 Yo yo yo!

Check out this mask I made at school.

This is Julia's first Halloween where she can trick-or-treat.  I'll show her how it's done.

 But first, stay still so we can take a pictures!!! Geez, Julia!


What, Elliot?  I like to dance!

Get ready to say Happy Halloween!

We're just keeping ourselves occupied.  Me, with small cars.  Julia, with Mommy's tablet.

Man, school can be so tiring!

We hope you enjoyed this month's pictures.  We hope you had a Happy Halloween!

14 Months, warm weather fun, special guests and Grandma's birthday

 As the title says, Julia is 14 months old.  But first, check me out in this box.

 This time I'm trying on Daddy's shoes.  I tend to do that with my parents' shoes.

Since we had warm weather, I got to play outside in our water table for the first time!  I really liked it.

 I like to share.  Want this?

Oops!  Now I'm really all wet!

 I like helping Julia learn how to walk.  Aren't I a great big brother?

I've been wanting to use utensils lately, so Mommy let me feed myself yogurt.  Yummy.  What do you mean it's not supposed to be on my face?  I'm saving it for later!
Look at me!  Mommy bought me these chopsticks!  I'm really good at picking up grapes!

 More outside fun another day.

 Coming home from school one day, I was just relaxing in my seat.

With all of Elliot's help, look at what I'm doing now!
I am too cool for school.

 Speaking of school, here I am wearing plastic princess shoes.  You can't really tell though.

 We went fruit picking!!!  Where?  At Grandma and Grandpa's house.  This is neat!  I've never done that before.

Grandma is helping me pick a pear.

 I can just barely reach it!

Here I am picking an apple with Grandma's help.

 Look at what I got, Mommy!

I like walking around with my lovey on my head.

 Hmmm...this is a new challenge for me.

I'll never get this.  Never!  Just kidding.  I did manage to go halfway up the big staircase with Mommy behind me.  She just thought this was a funny picture.

We celebrated Grandma's Chinese birthday.  Good thing too because she'll be in Hong Kong for her real birthday so we'll miss her. 
 Alyssa and Ashley came to visit with Auntie Jen.  Here we are laughing because our parents were making funny faces at us so that we'll smile.

Yes, you guys are funny, but I don't like sitting still anymore.  I'm outta here.

Hrumph...Mommy put me back on the couch for more pictures.

Ok, we must take one with our grandparents. Too bad Elliot isn't smiling.  This really is the best one out of all the pictures we have.
We hope you enjoyed our post!  Until next time.
