Latest Fashion Statement

~So what do you get when you want to snuggle with your 65 lb lab mix, she doesn't help you grab her, your hand slips and yanks your thumb back so far that it pops? You get a torn tendon and I small fracture that's what you get!

It's a good thing she's so cute!!

15 Months

It's hard to believe Ben is 15 months already, where has the time gone. We are embracing "Toddler hood" one day at a time and loving every minute of it. We went for his check up today and he is growing like a weed. He weighed in at 22lbs 5 oz and is 33 3/4 in tall. This puts him at 25th percentile for weight and above the 95th percentile for height. The Dr was a little concerned that he has lost weight since his 12 month check and told us to offer him more snacks. This kid already eats all the time and I don't know what else to do. I am trying not to worry about it all to much and just see how things go the next few months. Hopefully bu his 18month check he will have gained a few pounds.

His vocabulary is growing daily and says things like Dog, Darla, Jay Jay(for Jasmine) thank you, please, this, and many more. He loves to jump, dance and kick the soccer ball and is running around the house all day long. He is starting to take just one nap a day now which makes running errands a little easier. We go play at the new jungle Zone every Mon,Wed, and Fri for open play and he loves every minute of it. tomorrow is his first day at Ms. Carol's house, she is one of the in-home providers and Ben just loves her and the other kids there. He will be going every Tuesday and Thursday for just a few hrs to have some interaction with other kids. It's also a perk that she teaches Preschool so he'll be learning lots of new things while there and I can get a few things done around here.

Griffith Park and "Travel Town"

We took advantage of the nice day before the rain headed our way and drove down to LA on Sunday. I wanted to get fitted for new shoes and Griffith park just happened to be across the street so after new shoes we headed off to explore the park. It was such a nice day out and we had no idea they had so much to do inside. We stopped for a map and rode a small train( no pics from that one sorry) then headed up the mountain to "Travel Town" This is a free site where old commuter/coal burning trains are restored. they are no longer in working order but you can climb aboard most of them. We also went on a little train ride around the park which Ben LOVED! they had lots of Birthday parties and just Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!
