17 Months Old

Can you believe it? We are 17 months old today! We can't wait until next month so we can say we are 1 1/2 years old. That makes us really sound like toddlers and not "babies" anymore. This morning mommy tried REALLY hard to get our monthly picture. We knew it was annoying her that we were running away, jumping off the furniture and not staying where she put us. I knew if we just sat there for her, she wouldn't get to become creative and find new ways to keep us entertained. So really, we are doing it for her- not us. She started out having us sit outside on a stool. That did not work. I, of course looked at her and smiled for the camera but my brothers didn't look at her at all. Infact- they were jumping off the stool most of the time. Then she tried having us sit on the couch and you all know how those pictures turn out. She eventually decided to feed us yogurt melts at the coffee table, thinking we'd stay still long enough for a shot. She was wrong, we wanted the bag of yogurt melts so we kept leaving the table. Finally, G'ma Jean came over and told mommy to give us each a Veggie Tale DVD to hold to entertain us. We never get to hold the cases, just watch the shows so we didn't move an inch when they gave us those to hold. I guess G'ma knows best. Here's a few outtakes from the day.
We tried to go see the Easter Bunny today at the mall but he wasn't there yet. How can that be? Mommy said its only a few weeks until Easter so you'd think he'd want to see us all before then. Instead, we got to ride around in our choo choo wagon and go play at the play area. We were excited to do that since we hadn't been there in a few weeks.


  1. Jamie, best pictures! I'm always impressed with the photos you get. I rarely can get them all to even look at the camera at the same time. Happy 17 months!

  2. Happy day! I'm so glad to see everyone happy and healthy. What a difference a day makes.
    Jamie you amaze me. Where do you find the time? Your the best mommy.
