Party Pic


So last Friday was quite a busy day.
At 10:20am, Tanner, Grant and myself went to Grant's second pediatric dental appointment. He -once again- did great and was completely unphased by having to go into the back without mommy. Tanner and I stayed in the fun waiting room where he was highly entertained by the safari murals on the wall. He was hissing at the snake and growling at the stuffed tiger. Then Grant came out CAVITY FREE and we headed to the mall to look for a few birthday presents.
We quickly ran home, scarfed down some lunch and Grant went garage sale-ing with his buddies Caden and Jackson (and their mom.. of course).
Tanner and I then went to T's 15 months (although a little late... he will be 16 months this week) well child check up. Here are his stats:
22 lbs 3 oz (15th percentile)
33 inches (30 percentile)
He eats all table foods .. but doesn't eat a ton of anything.
He still loves his bottle (shh don't tell the doctor) and gets whole milk three times a day. He also still takes two naps but I try to keep his morning nap under an hour.
Tanner is a smart little guy. He loves to copy his brother (especially when yelling/loud voices are involed).
He can say these words (some of which his has picked up on just this week!!)
-book (although sounds like booooo)
-uh oh (which is your favorite and you say CONSTANTLY!!)

He can sign
-all done (it's kind of precious- whenever our family says amen he signs "all done" - which really makes sense if ya think about it :))

He loves to wave and give kisses and still cries if you say "no" in too forceful of a voice. He also loves to imitate animals sounds and can do kitty meows, doggy woof-woofs and bear/tiger rarrrrs.
Sometimes I think he is trying to say brother and tanner but those usually come out as dadddaa
He has TWELVE teeth and when he smiles big he shows them all off and he looks so old .. :*( tear! My little babers is so grown up!

After that busy day we had a birthday party for Abby (who turned SIX on Saturday!) and for the twins who turned one in April.
Then on Sunday we had a party for Aubrey who turned 3 this week and for Gramma Kalman (who would probably appreciate that I do NOT put her age on here)

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

here it is...

Hello friends.
I am ofiicially starting a blog for our family! Woot! I've been wanting to for some time now but we do not have the internet at home (and still don't....) however I happen to know a pretty cool Grammy and Pop-Pop who are always willing to let me (more like- the grandchildren) crash at their home for a while and steal their fast connection to the world wide web. I am hoping to update it every week or so and add some entertaining pictures of our always moving, ever exciting family.
God is so good!
Signing off for today..
