15 Month Checkup.

Big Man took Dani to her 15 month visit today. Apparently, for the first time, she reacted much like a dog at the vet. Not pleased. He said she screamed from the moment he brought her back with the nurse until they left. She wouldn't stand on the scale or assist in any way and was just squirming and fighting the man. (There's a reason mommy doesn't attend these visits.)

So, she weighs 20 pounds, 14 ounces, and is 31 1/2 inches long, and cute as heck. Although tonight mommy and Dani shed some tears when she fell down went boom on mommy's watch. Not fun. But it happened on daddy's dime today as well.

Dani seems to have interited her mommy's clumsy nature and mommy's tendency not to pay attention to things as carefully as she should. She takes off running, or walking even, and doesn't really look at what's on the floor in front of her. She took a little tumble this morning (on daddy's watch) and started wailing. She was crying and clinging to me when Big Man says, "I know what might help," and breaks out one of the birthday lollipops. The second Dani saw it the tears ended and she smiled. I am certain that we taught the lesson today that: candy is your friend and you should cry until you get some. Awesome.
