Splish Splash!

Just a little video of Parker playing in the tub a while back. We tried to get her to name her body parts but she wasn't too interested at the time. She is usually great at it!

Jeff's Surgery Update

Jeff had his knee surgery on Tuesday and he did well. What they originally thought was the Meniscus wasn't actually correct. There was nothing wrong with the Meniscus but instead the
ACL was partially torn. Couldn't they see that in an MRI?? So, there is nothing that we can do to prevent the ACL from tearing all the way. We aren't sure what was actually done in the surgery. I know he removed some scar tissue that had been causing some bleeding in the knee. Hopefully he isn't going to have the same pain that he had before. I guess it is a waiting game for the ACL now. It may tear all the way in a year or so or never tear at all. I'm glad is doing well though.

This morning we took Parker for her 15 month checkup and everything went extremely well. She unfortunately had to have one shot that she wasn't given at her year check up but now she doesn't have to have any more until she goes to Kindergarten!! Other than the shot, everything went well.

Weight- 23 lbs (yes she is still skinny)
height- 33 1/2 inches (and yes she is still super tall)

She seems to be right on track developmentally and I am thankful for that. I try to work with her everyday on colors and numbers and she loves for us to read to her. I hope she stays on this great track!

Jeff's Surgery

Also next Tuesday, Jeff is having surgery on his knee. In February, he tore his Meniscus so he is having Orthoscopic surgery to repair it. He will be under anesthesia but should be just fine. Keep us in your thoughts in hopes that nothing goes wrong during this procedure. He won't be able to walk for about two days but after that he should be just fine. Hopefully he will be more careful next time, :)

15 months

Parker turned 15 months on Thursday. I can't believe she is already 15 months old! I'm not for sure on her weight, height, etc. just yet. We see the doctor on Tuesday. We also have to get a couple of shots that weren't available at her year check up, yuck! She has grown so much and she continues to grow daily. I am amazed at the new things she can do everyday. Right now she can walk, run and climb onto everything. She is saying so many things. They are hard to understand but I know what she is saying. She loves to repeat almost everything we tell her. Her favorite is to tell us to "sit down". Yes, she hears that phrase a lot. I won't list all of the words but her vocabulary is really expanding. She "attempts" to count for me. It is very precious and she is really trying to get the hang of it. She is sleeping entire nights, thank goodness. I don't know how I managed before with her not sleeping while working and taking care of house stuff. She goes to bed around 8:30 or 9:00 and for the most part will sleep until around 7:30. She is usually consistent with her sleeping. She can almost eat anything now, which is great. She has five teeth and hopefully some more coming in. Two on the top and three on the bottom. So hopefully after Tuesday, I can give some better information on how much she has really grown. I can hardly believe it!

Pool Side

We bought Parker a small inflatable pool that she can splash around in during the day and she still doesn't seem to enjoy it that much. The first day she was in it, the water was pretty cold so we weren't too interested at all. By the second time she was in it, we still weren't interested. She wanted to get out and wander all around the yard. Maybe she will enjoy it at some point.
