15 (almost 16) months!!!!

Jack had his 15 month checkup today. We took the mini-van to Little Rock for the first time, and it was fabulous, as was Jack. He was sooo good! He slept almost the whole way there and was such a good boy the whole time. He played and walked around in the waiting room and then he flirted with the nurse like crazy! He's so adorable.
He weighs 25 pounds, 4 ounces and is 31 inches tall (or 2 foot 7 as Papa said), his head is 49.5 cm around. The doctor said that he's "perfect" and in the 50-75th percentile. She's really happy with his eating and his growth. He does have some eczema on his foot and elbow, so we got some samples for that, but other than that everything is perfect! Praise God! The next time he goes for a checkup we will have another tiny passenger with us--How exciting!
One of Jack's favorite things is dancing. Here he is breaking it down to some Latin music. We discovered that he likes Latin music when we went out to eat Mexican with my parents and he kept dancing! So now I put on the Latino channel to get him to dance! He's so funny! And you should see me and Brian dancing with him--priceless!
The doctor gave him a book about his favorite things--TRUCKS!

Grandpa and Grandmamma Chisholm had this play house in Gulfport and sent it home with us. Jack plays with it for hours! It has a doorbell, a lightswitch, mailbox, radio, and so much more! Thanks so much Grandpa and Grandmamma!

Jack likes to put things on his head and walk around. This is a towel he got out of Mommy's laundry pile.

We think he's starting to slim down and grow a little, but he obviously still has those CHEEKS!!!!! I'm so glad! I'm going to be sad when they go.

Aunt Amanda and Grandmamma came up to see us this past weekend. They kept Jack while we went to Memphis for a wedding. We had a blast hanging out with them, and we were so glad that we got to go to the wedding. It was beautiful, and we got to see tons of friends from MSU.

Jack absolutely positively LOVES his Aunt Amanda! They are so cute together!

So fun! Isn't it great to get away and take a break?

Love the new van. I'll be thinking of appropriate names...
