Getting so BIG!!

Yesterday Benjamin had a DR. appt. he didn't really like it, but we survived. He is now 32 in and weighing in at 26 pds, It feels like more because when you hold him, he expects you to support his weight and will sit back on your arm. Little stinker. The Dr. asked how many words he knows, and I could only think of 3!! How horrible of me! And that was because he'd been shoes shoes shoes just before she came in because he was not happy and wanted to get out of there! Well, I'd like to announce, that my 15 month old, is NOT behind, he knows more than 3 words they are:
Shoes, juice, (which is ANYTHING liquid), Please, cheese, car, bus, choo choo for train, woof for dog, cookie, cracker, bye, hi, bath, ball there's also a lot we understand but others may not. LIke igh igh for night night, a stange noise for all done, but he trys to sign it, so we've figured it out. And thank you is just a noise. He's trying really hard to communicate and trying to mimic the sounds we make. So Fun! And of course Daddy which I hear ALL day long, mommy, don't hear it very often, but Andrew didn't say it until after he turned two and that was thanks to Bob's mom. I don't know if she remembers it, but I do. He's getting SO BIG! Andrew got shots yesterday too so that he could go to preschool. WOW! Preschool, somedays I can't wait, somedays I don't know if I'm ready. I have until Friday to figure it out. I love prayer, it makes those big steps in life SO much easier!

It is crazy how fast time flies huh? I am sure that the doctors are use to people being caught off gaurd by some of their questions. Some times I really have to think about the answers because I am so use to things.

Why was it because of Bob's Mom that Andrew did not say Mommy till after he was two?

So, he started saying it when he was two, because she got him to say it. He called me oddy for the longest time.
