When I was in college, I babysat for a family that had 2 little boys. Their house was pretty wild looking and there were ALWAYS cheerios on their wooden floor. For some reason, this really traumatized me, and I vowed that when I had children there would never be cheerios on my floor.
This little Oliver thought he could break my stiff vow on cheerios.
No such luck little guy! We were running late to Ollie's 15 month appointment, but I just could not leave my floor with so many cheerios on the loose. So I swept, and swept, and ended up being late to Ollie's appointment.
Thankfully they were running behind and we were still able to get in. Ollie is in the 50% for weight and 75% for height. That's pretty big, for one of my offspring. He got some shots, along with the flu vaccine. Can you believe it's already time for the flu shot?
Finn and Calvin both got the flu mist vaccine, and both of them bawled like babies. I just kind of had to laugh. It was just a tiny squirt of mist up their nose. Very upsetting, I guess. As soon as we got home, they were very busy vaccinating their kitties.
At 15 months, Ollie is quite obsessed with balls. Nothing makes him happier, at this point in his life. Actually, now that I think about it, his most favorite thing is a juice box. He will do anything, anywhere, to anyone to get that juice box in his possession.
I was trying to get Ollie to sit still for a second, so that I could take a picture of him for a class I am taking.
He got so upset with me that he started to cry. He kept standing up saying, "uuuu--ppppp".
I had absolutely no luck with taking photos of Ollie. I ended up not even turning in my photo assignment yesterday, because I have been so ridiculously busy. This, is a first for me. In all my life as a student, I don't think I ever missed an assignment. Ever. I am usually such a stickler. However, kids change everything. It felt so wonderfully freeing, to just...skip...an assignment. I am wild!
Of course, now it's the next day and I'm feeling a smidge guilty.
So, sorry for the lack of blogging, but I figure you are all very busy too, and will understand, right?
