What a Busy Month!

Well it's now almost April, it's been a busy March. Emily is officially walking full-time now. She falls down a lot - but just gets right back up. No running yet though :)
She had her 15 month Dr visit on Monday and her height is 30" (38th percentile), her weight is 20.9 lbs (17th percentile) and her head circumference is a stunning 47.5 cm (90th percentile). The Dr is a little worried about her body to head ratio - since her head is so much larger than the rest of her body. It can be a sign of malnourishment - so we are on the duty of feeding her as much as possible. We're hoping she can gain some weight (and not head circumference!!) for her 18 month check-up.

Emily had a busy month. She has finally gotten to enjoy playing outside a little bit. The weather is starting to look like spring (sort of!!). She is still quite the chatter box. She always has a lot to say - but doesn't say a whole lot of words yet. She seems to understand a lot of words, but doesn't repeat them...or if she does - we don't know it.

She had a few sleepovers at Grandma Bonnie's and always enjoys those! She is starting to get into baby dolls which is really fun. She also likes to help in the kitchen - especially when making Taco Soup -- her new favorite!! Grammy and Grampa Walker came to visit last week - and she had fun playing with both of them. She got to taste her first Peep...gee thanks Grammy!!!

We just got back today from our first road trip without Daddy....at least long road trip! Emme and I went up to Minnesota to visit Auntie Ali and Morgan. It was lots of fun. Ali is about ready to have baby boy Hanson - so we wanted to sneak in a visit before his arrival. We had lots of fun playing with Morgan and even snuck away for a few hours to get a pedicure and go out to lunch -- thanks to Ali's cousin for babysitting the girls.
We also had some work done on the house. Thanks to Tony - we got new front steps!! YAY! They were so rotted out. He used that fake plastic wood that is supposed to last "forever" and it's white - so it matches nice with the house. He also took out our sliding door and replaced it. We now have a door that locks and we don't even get a breeze in the house when it's windy!! Thanks so much Tony - we really appreciate all your help!
