Laurelhurst Park

August 17th, 2009 — 3:04am

Today was the first time I’ve been out of the house since Tuesday, the flu is finally going away. So, what did we do? We went looking at houses, naturally. We found ourselves at another house in Laurelhurst, which is only 1.5 blocks from the awesome Laurelhurst Park. We had our first experience with a tire swing today! Levi didn’t get it and couldn’t sit on the tire – he wanted to slip through. Milo, on the other hand, instantly understood it.

Grab the chains!
Hold on tight!

Enjoy the view while Mommy swings you!

Whoops (see Milo ’sitting’ under the swing?)!
Milo says “Didn’t hurt… just my swingmaster ego…”

18 Month Old Check Up

August 12th, 2009 — 2:51am

Yesterday the boys had their 18 month checkup. The doc is really happy and says they are doing well. But, as we know, all anyone wants are the details and photos, so here we go.

Weight: 24.13 lbs (25-50th percentile).
This is a little strange since he was 25lbs last time. But he has been fussy, probably due to teething and, so I guess we need to watch this.
Length: 323/4 inches (50- 75th percentile)
One inch taller than last time!
Head circumference: 48.1 cm (50 – 75th percentile)

Even just getting measured, Levi knows what is going to happen … SHOTS!

Weight: 23.10 lbs (10- 25th percentile)
Levi was 23.15 at last visit. But he is teething too. or maybe this is just a normal growth slowdown. Anyhow, the doc wasn’t concerned.
Length: 32.5 inches (25- 50th percentile)
Levi grew an inch and a half!
Head circumference: 47.2 cm (25- 50th percentile)

Some fun things that have happened recently:
- Gramma Carol and Grampa Len visited this weekend and we had so much fun!
- I have been taking a few days off work to spend time with the boys. As some of you know, I went on my first business trip since the boys were born a few weeks ago and I wanted to spend extra time with the boys (and my visiting Mom!) to make up for it.
- Both boys added new words to their vocabulary lately. They both say “baby” and Levi said “Bottle” clear as day. Once. And he also now says “Woof”. So cute!
- The boys have been playing with Manny. They pick up his toys and throw them… getting a game of fetch going! And Manny loves it as well.
- Levi HEARTS his “Doggy Doggy(s)”. I need to remember who gave them to us because they have become his favorite lovey. Was it you?

We are 18 months old today! And we are a little too … active to hold signs at the moment. :)
