18 months


jillian turned 18 months old on sunday. it has become more and more difficulty to hold her with my big ol' belly while conducting and doing sharing time in primary. i was looking forward to sending her to nursery. jeff couldn't just leave her so he stayed in the room for the first half. i don't think jill even noticed that he was there or that i forced him to leave. she did great!! one month of baby free primary...then i'll have a brand new one at the hip.
i will admit that i sorta missed having jill with me though. she is just so dang cute during singing time.
she had her 18 month appointment on tues. she got a shot and didn't even cry!! i couldn't believe it. the doctor said "this is the easiest 18 month check-up i've ever done. is she always so cooperative?" the doctor must not have remembered her 1 yr check-up when she cried from the moment the doctor walked in the room to the moment i got jillian in the car. hopefully, jill will have pleasant appt. from now on. here's her stats: weight 26 lbs (75%), head 18.6 in (79.9%), height 34 in (97%).

Way to go Jillian!! She is tall! I can't believe you're going to have another so soon...

I'm so happy that Jillian loves nursery. Kessa loves it too. Kendra didn't really like it at first, but she would sit in a corner the whole time and just play with a toy by herself. 18 months old is such a fun age. Both of my girls have never cried with any of their shots. I think it is a little crazy. I still remember crying when I got my booster shot for kindergarten. I am so sad that I won't make it to the luncheon. I will try my hardest to find a way to go. I love that restaraunt and I also love good company. How many weeks are you?

wow! Good job not crying jill! That's amazing.

You know what I just realized, Jill and Calvin (and Carrie) will all be the same year in school. That seems so weird.

must know who jeff (and you) want to win survivor. I was really pulling for ozzie, but now I just want anyone but those stinkin' girls. They are so annoying.

It's such a love hate kind of thing- I love that I won't have to chase Eliza around the church anymore all Sunday long- but I hate how fast they grow up!

What a Big Girl. She is getting ready to be a big sister. Someone has to act grown up at that house...Ha, Ha.We are so proud of you Jillian, and we are very proud of your mama for loving motherhood and Daddy for honoring his priesthood. BTW....good luck to Jeff tomorrow @ the triathlon. We are excited to watch Jillian while mommy goes to see but wish we could be flies on the saguaro lake canyon walls and root for Daddy.
See ya in the morning!

Wow....she our babies are growing up too fast. I can't believe how tall she is? Must get it from the petersons!!!

She is tall, I didn't know if she just looked tall in the pictures or really was. I also didn't realize that they are so close in age - well, at least you get one month child free, and the new one should sleep during most of church for awhile anyway!

Your comment about almost having the baby after jumping during "Do As I'm Doing" cracked me up so much! You definitely wouldn't get a child-free month during Primary if that happened!

I can't believe Jillian is already 18 months old, and that she was so compliant during her doctor's appointment! Tough girl!
