18 mos old

Our stats for this milestone won't be up until we are 20 mos old because Daddy thought he had made an appt for our well check-up but when Mommy called last week to find out when it was, the Dr's office said that we didn't have an appt and our Dr is booked until end of May.  So unfortunately, we all will have to wait to find out how big we've grown in the last 8 mos.

Mommy said that she'd show our Halloween pics, so here we are in our costumes!

Cooper, Riley, and Gabby recently had fevers. Mommy noticed a pattern after Riley. Each kid had a fever for 3 days. Cooper was first, with a low grade fever. After three days, then Riley got one. But his first fever was 104.3 F. He went to the Dr the next day and she thought that he was starting a cold.

 Yes....Mommy is mean for taking selfie, while waiting for Dr, and having a little fun at Riley's expense .

That night, his fever spiked to 105.5. Mommy gave him a cool bath and made him drink cold juice while Daddy was on the phone with the nurse hotline. She advised us to go to the ER. They were there for almost 4 hrs with no answers. Mommy followed up with our doctor the next day and Riley was fever free after that. So weird!

Gabby's fever was like Cooper's, low grade, but lasted 3 days as well.

It finally rained! Gianna got to go out and play in the rain while we watched her. Bummer for us, we can't do that til next year! Mommy is already looking for 5 pairs of rainboots and jackets for us. We are counting the days that we can jump in the mud with G!

Gianna is becoming quite the photographer with Mommy's phone. Here are some pics she took of us while we were playing.

Riley thinks by wearing a super cape, he can avoid a haircut =)

Gianna would like to share her "selfie" montage. What a silly sister =)


Mommy took a picture of Riley and Cooper playing on the sofa together.

We recently found out that Riley has a severe peanut allergy and some other ones as well. Mommy got him tested the other day and we'll find out his allergy results soon! Hopefully we can pinpoint all the foods he can't be exposed to. Poor guy! His skin is finally starting to look a little better but he is still scratching himself :(  Mommy has to keep on top of cutting his nails so he doesn't keep having "slasher" marks all over his arms and legs.

Happy Valentines Day!

Mommy is really dropping the ball on updates since our birthday! She was going to take pics of us in our Halloween costume and next thing you's Valentine's Day! A lot has happened since our birthday. We dressed up as "Thing One - Thing Five", based on Dr. Seuss's characters Thing One and Thing Two, for Halloween but no trick-or-treating for us this year. Gianna dressed up as Doc McStuffins (pictures to be posted later).

We celebrated our first Thanksgiving, out of the house, (sorry, no pictures) with our cousins at their great grandma's house. We loved the fact that there were no gates and we could roam around freely!

In the beginning of December we took our first trip to the StrideRite store at the mall to get our first pair of shoes. Mommy called the store ahead of time to warn them that we were coming! Overall, it went WAY better than all the scenarios she had played in her head before taking us! A shout out to Ms. Karen and Ms. Sheila for going with us!
Emmy's new kicks.

Riley- "Hey Coop, what do you think of these shoes?"
Cooper- "I'm not really a dark pink kinda guy."

Riley checking to see if Cooper's shoes are the right fit.

Christmas this year was a lot of fun since we had the family over this year to celebrate. Gianna couldn't figure out why there was a gate around the tree, but we thought she was being silly because doesn't everyone have a gate around their tree???  Daddy and Mommy are thankful that they hopefully had their first and last gate around the Christmas tree.

 We took our first family vacation last month. Little did we know that we would have fantastic weather the whole week and got to go swimming every day! We also got to play at a little park that was on the premises which was also fun! We got our slide skills down!

After vacation all 6 of us got a cold. Then for everyone, except Addy, it turned into a respiratory type flu. We had to take antibiotics and Mommy had to give us breathing treatments. It was no fun! Gabby ended up with pneumonia, but just finished her 10-day round of antibiotics and is all better now. Except her molars are coming in now and it's a different misery for her.
However, Mommy was thankful that it wasn't stomach flu! That would have been the worst. Hopefully it doesn't come through our house anytime soon!

Mommy was also thankful that this was our first major illness in the last 17 mos.!

We got better just in time for Valentine's weekend. You can see how big we've gotten since our birthday! Mommy can't wait to find out our heights and weights at our 18mos check up next month!!

Happy Valentine's Day from GRACE plus One!
