Leela's 18 Month, Richie is ALMOST 3 and ...

Let's start out with a couple stats for Leela's 18 month visit:

Weight: 25 lbs
Height: 33 in
Head Cir: 18.5 in

Everything is going just fine with her growth!  It was for the most part a fairly simple appointment until they asked her to get on the scale.  Bring on the Leela stink face scowl.  A little bit of a change for us being a new doctor.  We opted to change doctors to be closer and also a family doctor rather than a pediatrician. 

She is a walking talking maniac who loves to copy her brother.  She puts on her own boots, can pull on a pair of pants and is ever increasingly independent.  Favorite word right now....NOOOOOOO.

She often has "yes" "no" "yes" "no" arguments with her big brother in which she usually wins because she is relentless.  What she is saying no to, I believe she doesn't know or care but let me tell you her answer is NO.  We are still battling the car CRY.  Any ride past about 15 minutes she goes into this horrible howl that really doesn't stop until we reach our destination.  I can distract her for a couple minutes and then the howl begins.  We even thought when we bought our new van with DVD player she might be distracted by the movie playing...nope.  Record howl to date: 1.5 hour.  S-T-R-E-S-S-F-U-L.  Please tell me she will grow out of it...please tell me...

Richie...my little Scooper.  I can't believe my baby is almost 3 (Dec 1st).  This year we opted for going to a Jumpy House rather than our traditional at home party.  Things are just too busy and to be honest I didn't want to bring on the stress of cooking and cleaning.  We are going this Sunday. 

What a smart, funny little man.  He can count to 10 and tries to go beyond...11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 20.  Starting to learn ABC's and about halfway he gets himself mixed up.  We have conversations after daycare about his day.  He tells me when I'm being a "bad boy" and Momma is the boss and his b"r"est Friend.  I see him growing each day and he is always willing to test my patience.  Potty training is still ongoing.  Every time we think we've got it we take a couple steps back.  His favorite show is DINOTRUX and he loves playing with his construction equipment toys. 

Anyways, I am out of time and thought I would get to the ...AND... part...
