Konnor's 18 month checkup

WOW! He's 18 months already! He'll be 2 years old before we know it. This morning we had his well baby checkup. He didn't have to have his shots this time since he got caught up with them at his last well baby visit.

Weight: 26 lbs Height 33.5"

Recent Milestones: Konnor is learning to recite his ABCs. He talks alot but is showing lots of signs of "actual words". Some of the things he says are "hot", "cold", "oh no", "owee", "Da-Da", "Mom-Mom", "Ma", "Pa", "Bad", "One", "Two", "ear", "Eyes", "shoes" name a few. He went to his first concert for his favorite show "Hi-5" in San Diego last week. He LOVED it. Danced throughout the whole show. He loves to put money into his piggy banks. Anytime he finds a coin, he picks it up! LOL He's becoming very interested in his new baby to be. He pays such close attention during my ultrasounds and he kisses my tummy every morning. He's gotten 3 haircuts since he has turned 1. His hair grows TOO FAST! He now has all his teeth (minus his second and permanent molars). The last cuspid just poked through last week. He's fairly a picky eater sometimes. Or he goes 3 days without eating real meals, just grazing...then he'll so well the next day. Still sleeps 11 hours straight through the night. Has been in his big boy bed for 2 months or so now. All in all it's been awesome being a Mom. I'm fortunate to be a SAHM able to see Konnor learn and experience new things everyday. He amazes me how fast he learns and how mellow of a boy he is. Of course he has his "boy" days but for the most part he's such an easy kid! I LOVE MOMMYHOOD!

We celebrated his 18m birthday since Mama, Papa, Uncle Ed, Auntie Samana, Cousins Julian and Nicolas were at the house.

22 weeks along

Dr. Anderson has now up'd my due date to December 20th. According to my level 2 ultrasound from last week, I was measuring a few days earlier than expected.

The ultrasound was great. Everything was looking good. My BP has still been significantly lower than before. FINALLY...normal blood pressure.

Konnor's 1st concert - HI-5

Konnor LOVES Hi-5 from TLC. It's an everyday ritual for him to watch it on tv every morning, then again during the day and sometimes before bedtime. He has been watching them since he was about 3 1/2 or 4 months old. I remember putting him in his bouncer with the tv on Hi-5 while I showered in the mornings. It's wonderful that he still likes the show. He loves listening, dancing and singing along with the show and the CD in the car as well.

When I found out they were touring and would be in San Diego, I told Kevin we HAD to take Konnor! The day had come and I was more excited to take him than he was. Especially that he didn't quite understand...until we got there!

We spent the day being "tourists" in San Diego. We went to Seaport Village. Took a walk along the waterfront, took the ferry ride to Coronado and just enjoyed the sunny San Diego weather. Konnor enjoyed it too.

We got to the Spreckel's theater in San Diego. We waited in the lobby for the doors to open. I never imagined so many other kids would be there. Konnor was a bit overwhelmed too. When the doors opened, we went straight to our seats. We had mezzanine seats, row 1, seats dead center! PERFECT! Konnor noticed the stage was set up just like the tv show. He then started to get excited. As soon as they came out.....Konnor was literally "star struck"! He was so amazed that they were live, in person and not on our tv. He danced, smiled so big, clapped his hands and stared. He paid such close attention through the whole 2 hour show!

Next....Doodlebops in February, which we missed this past March since it was the same weekend as his 1st birthday party. This will be part of his 2nd birthday present. AND...DISNEYDLAND! :-)

Below are some photos and video clips. ENJOY!

Konnor is my E.T.

I caught Konnor in his room today....he was sitting in his shelf with the rest of his stuffed animals. I laughed and ran and got the camera. It reminded me of E.T.! He thought it was funny too.

Konnor is learning his ABC's

It's the cutest thing! He is learning his ABC's...although he can only say them to his E's. He is starting to repeat it when we say it.

Other than learning his ABC's his new thing has constantly been saying "OH NO"...or "OH OH". Funny enough, he uses them at the right time. I can tell when he's done something wrong. Usually he'll even take me to where he did a "Oh no". Most of the time it's that he dropped something, made a mess of something.

20 weeks along!!!

We've made it...we're half way through the pregnancy. We're excited to start decorating Baby's room and getting things ready. Luckily he will have plenty of clothes, toys and all the extras from Big Brother Konnor. But that's not fair to get all hand me downs....he'll need fun, new things of his own too! I can't wait to SHOP!

The pregnancy is going fine. A few aches and pains on some days, but it's been easier than my pregnancy with Konnor. My appetite has been considerably different. I've craved sweets a lot. I'm afraid to go in for my glucose testing! No weight gain since my first appointment. Hopefully this pregnancy weight will go like it did with Konnor. I didn't gain throughout my pregnancy until the end. Even that was only a total of 13lbs.
