Just Like Mommy!


Long time no blog...sorry about that. Things have been crazy (what else is new) here and on occasion I've been a bit lazy too. I've been meaning to post this photo for a few days now. Grandma Libbi made Princess J this book, and the other night she fell asleep looking at it.....mommy reads every night before she goes to bed and this happens to her quite often! LOL!


Today, Princess J had her 15 month check up! She currently weighs 22 lbs. Her head is 19 inches round and she is 30 inches tall. She's doing really well. Dr. says that her skills are at about the 18mos level! Wow! After our experience with Little J, we are watching her development very closely. We are very fortunate to have a dr. who understands our concerns and our nervousness about this and spends time with us and goes over all of our questions. She didn't get any shots today....mommy chickened out of them today! LOL! Actually, we are getting ready to go on a little adventure soon and I didn't want to risk her having a reaction to the 15mos. vaccinations like Little J did. He ended up in the ER and was sick most of the week were were gone right after his 15mos shots. He had a 104 temperature and tylenol or motrin was not bringing it down. He got very lethargic and we ended up taking him to the ER where they ran every test in the book to try and explain his fever to no avail. A few days later he was fine. Our home pediatrican felt that it was probably a reaction to the vaccine he had gotten since it was still within the 7 day time period for that to happen It wasn't anything serious or anything that would change our mind about getting Princess J shots, we just didn't want to take the chance of it happening on our adventure. She'll be getting her 15 mos shots in the next couple of weeks.


Hopefully we'll (meaning me and Princess J) be able to update the ol' blog while on adventure. We will be updating and posting photos when we can!
