Just a Babe

Mike's current computer wallpaper is a blast from Jasper's past.

I have to think hard to remember back to when this photo was taken -- during his first few hours here on earth.

He looks so tiny, so peaceful, so perfect.

It seems like a lot longer than 19 months ago.

What a great reminder to be better about my journal and our family history.

When We're Helping We're Happy



















Jasper LOVES to do chores!

He is currently enamored with the kitchen floor sweeper. He wants to vacuum all the time. He can even turn it on by himself. The above photos are of him sweeping after right he came home from church and first thing this morning after he got out of the shower. He loves to vacuum!

If you open the dishwasher, you better believe Jasper will make a mad dash around the island to help you out. Don't even think about unloading or the dishes solo. He takes it as a personal insult.

The videos below showcase his unloading assistance from a few days ago.

Diaper Change Please

For the last month Jasper has been letting us know when he needs a diaper change.

I think this is a good step in the right direction towards potty training.

His cue for a diaper change is shown at the end of this video.

18 Month Check-Up











































I'm over a month late here, but I wanted to record Jasper's 18 month check-up.

Height: 31 inches -- 10-25th percentile
Weight: 22 bs. 7 oz. -- 10-25th percentile
Head Circumference: 48 1/2 cm -- 50-75th percentile

We tried to keep busy while we waited for Dr. LaMotte by reading one of our favorite books: "How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms?".

And our all time favorite source of entertainment while waiting around...the orange bouncy ball. Which we affectionately refer to as "Orangie".

I am posting video of Orangie the bouncy ball at the end of this post. I tuck this ball in my purse at all times just in case I need it to entertain Jasper. It is a lifesaver!

Mike met us for a nice lunch at Cafe Rio after our appointment at the doctor.

I always ask for limes for my water. Jasper tries to eat them and feed them to us. Silly boy!
