Wild Wild West

For our stake conferce the stake hosted a WWW themed day in the park. There were a ton of people there. They had giant bouncy toys, pony rides, balloon artists, face painting and a ton of other fun activities. Hannah had a great time.

Goin' fishin'



The "duck pond" is where we spent most of our time. Hannah just loves the water. She was soaked.





This is Evan. He is in nursery with Hannah. He is almost 2 1/2 but he's so tiny next to Hannah!

After all that playing Hannah was a very thirsty girl. Bring on the water.

18 Month Check Up



We finally got Hannah in to see a pediatrician for her 18 month check up. Overall she is very healthy. She is 33" tall (in the 75th%) and weighs 25lbs (the 50th%). We did a lot of prep work before the doctors appointment playing with her doctors kit, and talking about what was going to happen. She was very excited to go and kept saying "doctor" and "nurse" and then "tummy" "eyes" "nose" "ears" "knee" as we drove to the office in anticipation of what was about to come. I thought we were going to be ok. But no. She screamed the whole time we were in the doctors office and kept saying "no more!" before they had even measured her. She wouldn't even stand on the scale so I had to stand on it while holding her and then alone so they could figure out her weight. I had to hold her down on the table so they could measure her length (why don't the just let them stand next to a yard stick?). I also had to hold her down for the doctor to look at her tummy, eyes, nose, ears and knees. Oh yeah, and of course, for the shots. This part of being a mom is no fun. When it was all over the nice nurse tried to give Hannah a sticker but Hannah screamed like the nurse had the needle again. But the second we were in the waiting room she was all smiles. She played with toys and hugged random children and smelled the flowers on the way to the car. On the way home she said "doctor, tummy, eyes, nose, ears, knees, nurse!" like she had a great time. What an ordeal. Does it ever get any better? Poor Hannah.
