15 Months

Time flies and the days fly by so fast. I can't believe Hope is already 15 months old.  She is changing and learning so much every day.  She has started standing on her own, but only for a few seconds.  I know when she gets comfortable, she will take her first step.  She is talking like crazy...not really understanding too much of what she says, but it sure is cute.  Notice that I did not say how big she is getting.  She seems to have hit a plateau...still trying to get back to 16 pounds.  I really thought she would be in 12 month clothes this winter and I am beginning to think she will wear out the 6-9 month clothes that she has been wearing since summer.  Oh well...I refuse to get worked up about the weight anymore.  She eats good and takes her bottle a few times a day.  She will gain at her own rate and now I get to convince her pediatrician and cardiologist the same thing.

We are still trying to get ready for Christmas.  The tree is up and a few gifts have been bought.  We are planning a big shopping trip for the weekend when my mom can watch the kids.  No Christmas cards this year.  I am hopeful every year that we will get them made, but it hasn't happened since before Paul was born. 

Now to share some great pictures!
Just waiting to see the cell phone bill as she gets older.
Frogger is the greatest cat in the world.  He may look upset, but he loves the attention!
They are always into something.


  1. I laughed so hard when I saw the pic of the kids holding the cat and he was dressed like santa. THAT should've been the pic for your Christmas card. TOO cute and funny when you look at the expression on the cat's face.

    Glad all is well in your house! Have a Merry Christmas!!

  2. Awww! She's getting so big Paula! I hear ya on the weight thing. I agree. Aly eats like a little piggie- anything and everything and gains just a little bit here and a little bit there. Hope looks great!!
    Happy holidays to you and your family!

  3. Love the photos!!! The kids are just so precious. I am glad to hear that Hope is doing really good. I pray she starts to gain more weight but like you said she will at her pace. No Christmas cards from me either, this year I just haven't been in the spirit of the holidays. ((HUGS))

  4. Great pictures! Happy 15 months Hope! Glad you guys are doing well and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!! Blessings!

  5. I hope that your family has a blessed holiday. Thanks for sharing the pictures of the kids. Everyone looks so happy & healthy :)
