Orion Zane is 18 months old today :) He has 12 teeth and is working on his 4 canines. He still sleeps in his crib in his room, usually 12 hours a night and 1-2 hours during the day for a nap. He uses signs for more, eat, please, all done/gone, outside and bye bye. He has spoken words for Mama, Daddy, Lolli, Poppy, doggie, animal (ca-ca), Papaw, hot, poopy, peepee, wow, yay and yeah. Oh, and The Fox song by Ylvis (hatee hatee hatee hatee). He loves babies and animals. He also loves the Avengers, especially Thor, whom he tells good night to every time he goes to bed. He enjoys going to Baby Storytime at the library and is so good at participating now! He likes to hug the other kids which sometimes results in them falling over ha ha. He rides rear-facing in the middle row of the van behind the driver's seat. He rides FF in Zach's car and in the van when Lauren is transporting the babysitting kids. Oz loves to get out the pots and pans. He also loves to throw things away, still, so the trash can and recycling bin remain in the pantry. He gets super excited about putting on his coat and shoes (because he loves to go outside and bye bye).

Ozzie's butt was red when I changed him downstairs before bed so I let him keep his booty out on the way upstairs. When he got to the bottom of the stairs he took a huge dump on the tile. This led to Poppy throwing a huge fit because I wouldn't let her clean it up until I got most of the poop already up because I didn't want her smearing everywhere. And now Lolli is afraid of Ozzie because she says she doesn't like the way his poop looks. But at least this ordeal saved a diaper. Maybe I should let Oz go bare butt on the tile more often!

We're 7 weeks into the school year already! Lolli LOVES kindergarten. She's learning so much and has never had a day lower than green on the behavior chart. She gets blues pretty regularly and occasionally an indigo - woohoo! She loves buying her lunch and is starting to branch out from always eating pb&j. She won't let Lauren pack her lunch because the one day she did, the note inside made Lolli cry. So now she equates bringing her lunch with sadness. But besides that and missing 3 days of school the 2nd week due to being sick, the year is a total success so far! Her favorite part of school is gym class. And art class. And music class. And media. And math. And reading. And lunch. And recess. And the bus... you get the picture lol Poppy loves her pre-k class, too and has also never had a day lower than green! She gets to buy her milk in the lunch line each day at snack time and sometimes she sees her older neighborhood friends in the halls or library which she thinks is fun. She can spell and write Penelope and is working hard on learning her letter sounds. Her favorite part of school is circle time.
Ozzie's vocabulary is expanding! He can now say Daddy, Mommy, Papaw, Poppy, Dog, Cat, Ball, Duck, Baseball, and poo poo (which he says over and over when I change his diaper ha ha). He signs more, please and eat as well as waves to mean bye bye, night night, and outside.
Today was Ozzie's regularly schedule 15 month well child check, Poppy's 4 year visit, and Lolli had an appointment to get her ears looked at after failing her hearing screen at school. Everything went well! Poppy got her vaccines for kindergarten (4 shots - ouch!) but took it like a trooper (baby DOOOOLLLLLLLL). The doctor recommended Lolli take some Zyrtec or Allegra daily until her next hearing screen to see if that helps clear up the fluid in her ears. Ozzie: 31 inches, 22.2lbs, 18in head Poppy: 40.25 inches, 38.6lbs, BP 93/61, pulse 82 Lolli: 45.25 inches, 46.6lbs, BP 98/65, pulse 79
