Erin is 15 Months

At Erin's 15 month checkup she was 21 pounds 14 ounces (30th percentile) and 30-1/2 inches long (50th percentile).
I'm still giving her a bottle before bedtime. She doesn't need it but I just haven't stopped giving it to her. It's purely selfish, I just love that sweet quiet time with her. Maybe just a couple more weeks :)
She's talking more, mostly mama, dada, juice, shoes and uh oh's. The obsession with shoes continues.
Not much else to report, she's growing up way too fast and time just needs to slow down a bit so I can catch up. I'm so not ready for her to not be a baby anymore.

The Post Where I Post a Bazillion Pictures!

So it's fall, my favorite time of year and it has been pretty gorgeous. The kids of mine have been keeping me busy so I haven't posted much. Not much going on, so I'm just going to post some pics of these growing kids.
Erin is such and awesome girl. Seriously I love her attitude. She reminds me a lot of me. Sometimes she  can just give someone a look and it's almost as if she is saying "why are you trying to mess with me, I am not down with that". She's hysterical with her giggles, loud screeches and her obsessive love of shoes. If she sees a pair of shoes that are hers, she must wear them. If she sees a pair of shoes that are yours YOU must wear them. Erin thinks being barefoot is unacceptable.

Evan continues to amaze me with all he is learning. Every day he says something that surprises me and I can't believe he's growing into such a little man. He's been doing a lot better with his tantrums but he still has his moments. He still loves Toy Story but most often he asks to watch Little Einsteins or Jake and the Neverland Pirates. He's actually going to be a pirate for Halloween and I'm excited to see him all dressed up.

I'm feeling so blessed right now. As crazy as it can be with these two little ones I try and stop and remember how quickly these years are passing by. I love both their ages right now, they both make me feel like the luckiest mama in the world.

Hee hee, what is Erin thinking in this picture?

I always ask Evan what he learns at preschool but I rarely get a reply. Usually he tells me he just played which I know isn't true. I'll ask him to count to 10 and say his abc's all the time but he doesn't usually recite them unless he thinks I'm not paying attention.
This morning I witnessed him saying his abc's and luckily had the video camera right in my reach. I've never heard him say them so clearly and nearly right! Makes me so proud.
