Weekly Update - 15 Month Well Child Visit

So I slacked a little and didn't really get a weekly update in last week (but I'm guessing you guys don't really care so I'm not going to worry about it!)

Lots going on lately but one of the fun things we did was Little L's 15 month pictures last Saturday.  We had them done by the same woman that took her 9 month shots and they turned out super so we were excited to see her again!  Check out some samples of the pictures she took on Saturday at Christy's blog for her Creative Connections Photography site.  They turned out so great!  Can't wait to get them printed!

Then Monday morning we had Little L's 15 month well child visit and it went great!  She is growing right along (is actually in the 90% for height and 50% for everything else).  She made sure to show off her skills by pointing to her teeth when the pediatrician asked about brushing her teeth and she also gave some "love" to the froggies on the wall!  Such a cutie if I do say so myself! 

Unfortunately the last few nights/days have been a bit rough!  For some reason Little L decided she didn't really want to sleep at night.  I think with the combination of teething and growing she was just a little out of wack.  So on Monday night she woke up around midnight and was screaming.  I went in to comfort her and she calmed down but as soon as I tried to put her in her crib she would get all worked up!  I figured I would try lying down with her in the spare bed but she just wouldn't fall asleep.  So I tried a bunch of different things and basically just ended up cuddling with her until about 5 in the morning.  She finally went down and I was able to get a little nap before work.  Tuesday night she slept all night through which was great but then on Wednesday night she was up again around 11:30pm.  The hubby and I decided it would just be easiest to play with her since she was completely awake so the 3 of us watched a video and then I went back to bed and daddy and Little L played until about 3:30 in the morning when she finally went to sleep!  I was so exhausted last night after work that I was feeling sick.  So after Little L went to bed so did I.  Unfortunately she woke up again around 11pm.  I was so tired the only thing I could think of was to get in her crib and sleep with her.  I know...sounds crazy right...but she would just run all over our bed if I brought her in there so that wasn't an option.  And as crazy as it was I was just so tired I had to do something...well it worked!  She calmed down right away and fell asleep about 45 min. later.  After she had slept for a little while I crawled out and went to bed.  Ah, the joys of mommyhood!  :)  You do what you have to right!  :)

The hubby was busy last week helping some friends out at their business by setting up cubicles.  Unfortunately it ended up being a lot more time consuming than was expected but he worked super hard and got the job done!  

I had "yogurt school" this week so I had to go into work for three days.  Since I am going to be working on yogurt now it was super helpful to learn all the different processes and how it is actually made!  We even got to make a batch of it ourselves!  Tons of fun!

Well, that's about it for now!  Exciting things are on the horizon...I just know it and I can't wait to share!

Oh, and here's Little L running around with one of her fave books!

Oh no! It seems like MVJ is going through the same thing as little L did. I have NOT resorted to climbing in her crib with her yet, but it definitely sounds like a viable option! : ) MVJ's appointment is Friday so we can compare notes ; ). heehee
