16 months

Happy 16 months old today to Owen! My how you are growing in size and personality!
Today's weight 17 pounds 8 ounces (finally a 1/2 pound gain!!!!). Length 28 1/4 inches. Head circ 46 cm. You are plotting the same as you have been which is about 7th percentile for weight for length. And for weight for age you are about the size of an ave. 6 month old-height that of an ave 9 month old. Head about a 10 month old. You are walking everywhere and quite clingy. You have 6 teeth (4 on top and 2 on bottom) and a smile to melt the coldest of hearts! You still love to make us laugh by putting on a show for us with dancing, bouncing, head shaking, etc. The end of the month we'll head to Indy again for an appt with the Endocrinologist. You aren't saying any real words but we think we hear Ma, da, TJ and something 2 syllable that could be Jacob:-) We also catch yea from time to time and you shake your head yes and no (though not always appropriately;-)-you also have used the sign for all done and thank you!

Today, daddy has the flu (not suprising being that he is the only one NOT to get a flu shot) and has been in bed for 2 days. This is the first day I know of he has ever missed a day of work for his being sick (EVER). Tamiflu is a great thing. SO is mucinex, tylenol, motrin, therflu, and prednisone (all meds he is taking;-).

Mommy is very tired since she has not slept well with Daddy sick. TJ is also home for school now so this is proving to be very interesting (and draining). You're being fussy so I guess I'm done with this post.

He's doing so much!

Hope you all don't get the flu. We've just gotten over it (all 5 of us). I hear they predicted the wrong strain of flu this year so the flu shots aren't working! Keep the boys away from Tim and Lysol the house! ;o)

Adorable pictures, Renay. Good luck on staying clear of that flu bug. We have an epidemic going through my worksite. Luckily not everyone is down at the same time, but it's awful!

I love that you included the first picture. Glad the photo shoot got better (or maybe that's how he was feeling at the end). Sorry to hear Tim has the flu--he is on a LOT of meds. Hope he feels better soon. Must be REALLY bad if it's his first day of missing work in forever. Hang in can be difficult when the dad is sick :-)

Renay, he's getting so old! What a joy he is. Thanks for these wonderful pictures. I especially love the one of him crying. Hope your hubby gets better soon. Wicked illnesses in the air this winter!
