Month 16 and 17

Let me start off by apologizing for Mommy not updating my website in awhile. On a Monday March, I was so excited about going to school, I ran towards the jungle gym. Then I tripped, fell and bashed my head on the jungle gym. I had a huge golf-ball sized bump and bruise on my head most of that month and Mommy didn’t want pictures to remind her of my big owie. That’s her excuse for March. I don’t know what her problem has been this month. You’ll have to ask her about that.

Where to begin? My vocabulary continues to grow, although sometime Mom still doesn’t know what I’m saying. I say “all done” while signing it. I can say “more” quite well (with the r sound even). I say “no” much to Mommy’s annoyance and “mine.” Ok, I normally screech those two, but you get the point. I know that ducks go “quack quack” and do a really good frog impression with my tongue. I can also impersonate a dog on a hot day, a chicken and do a good “rowr” for a variety of animals. I am obsessed with babies and Elmo. I can say “socks,” “bubble,” “chis” (cheese) and “ssss ssss” means Sesame Street. I’m good at taking my own shoes off as soon as I get home and I put my clothes in the hamper after my bath. Mommy says I give good hugs and she really loves it when I run to her for a kiss. I like to wave to the security guards when we come through the front of the complex.

Since my last update, my Auntie Clarissa and her baby boy (my future husband) Richie came home to Hawaii for a visit. Mommy, Daddy and I have been going to the park a lot and I rode the swing for the first time. I wasn’t too thrilled with it, but I do like me some slides. I had my 15 month check up kinda late, but I’m 26 pounds and 32 inches tall. Daddy’s been on leave the last couple of weeks and I’ve really liked spending so much time with him.

Next month we are going on vacation, so don’t expect an update. My next doctor’s appointment is June 22nd. I’ll have some updated stats and vacation pictures to share with you then. Mom’s freaking out about our first airplane ride together. We’ll let you know how it goes.
