When someone mentioned the folded cards, I thought, I don't want to write a message in 50+ Christmas cards! I hate my handwriting and can not think of 50 original heartfelt messages. :) But Shutterfly has the answer! On their folded cards you can insert pictures and text! YAY! So I get to send a Christmas CARD not just a enchanced image, and I don't have to cramp up my hand to do so.
Here's the some of the ones I'm thinking of:
Just look at the inside of this one! All the insides are customizable based on what you want. This would be perfect for showing off pictures of the year's highlights!

Photographic evidence that even though my little boy started school today, he's still my baby! (Sleeping in my bed! You can see Charlotte's pillow in the top right, she ended up in our bed too!)
Andrew telling us all about his first day...including his snack of crackers and napkins. lol
We took Andrew (and Charlotte) out to lunch and to a movie to celebrate his first day of school...Charlotte got bored (I did too!) with Iron Man 2, so we waited in the lobby for the boys. We got 2 $0.25 bouncy balls, a $0.25 bracelet (blue on her R arm) and some photos done to pass the time. The trucks were dug out of my diaper bag. :)

We've been invited to a lot of birthday parties lately. We were just at one yesterday, it was at a cool pizza place in Beaverton. The little girl had a Barbie-themed party and was turning...6, I believe. :) My husband and I are firm believers that children (ours included) have too many toys, so we try to find alternative gifts. Usually we opt for books or clothes, but kids can even have too many clothes (never too many books). I stopped at Target on our way and got a Hello Kitty backpack, binder, folder, and notepad, as well as a pack of Crayola markers and colored pencils. I threw it all and some tissue paper into a reusable shopping bag (cheaper and more practical than a gift bag) and hoped she was in school or starting school this year. :)
Giant ball pit: (There were two hoops in here, but they were so high that even I had trouble making the shot, I don't know how they expected the children to do it...)

Okay, so doctor appointment today: Weight: 26 lbs 12 oz 82%
Height: 33.3 inches 91%
Head: 19.4 inches 98%
She got 3 vaccines: DTAP, Hep A and PCV13.
We talked about a dimple on her tush (at base of spine) and her broken toe nail. She told me that because the dimple (hole) is closed, there are no worries. And I should super glue her toe nail on until it can grow out a little. LOL
We also talked about the AAP recommendations to keep children rear-facing until 2 yrs. I switched her back around, because a broken leg is better than a broken spine.
So, question for all of you...my pediatrician said that at 18 months they should know about 6 words...Charlotte knows at least 20 (I have a list)...what's your tots vocabulary like?
Pictures of today's adventures (she looks like a grape! LOL):
