Wow. 15 months old. It is unbelievable. These first pictures are from the day we took Julia for her 15 month check up and shots. She is now weighs 22 pounds 13 ounces and 34 1/2 inches tall. Here she is getting ready to drive to her appointment - don't tell Steve, though, since it's his car...

I warned Julia about always checking carefully BEHIND you so she listened.

After three shots and a bill of good health, Megan and I decided to take Julia to the Chandler Mall (since her doctor is way down that way) and let her try the play area with all the other kids...

I think she had a good time but it was nerve wracking watching her with about 100 other little kids having a good time, too.

Here's Julia and Megan one morning when I come to babysit. This is probably about September 30 or so.

It's hard to believe we are getting another little baby in the family in less than two months. As soon as we wave Megan off to work it's time for breakfast and Julia never let's me forget it. Her favorite is scrambled eggs, whole grain toast and grapes or another fruit. She has sort of mastered the use of the fork but doesn't like to use the "baby fork".

When all else fails, though, she doesn't mind using her hands, too.

Since it is cooling off a little we will head off to the playground by the house and then to the grocery store.

Here's Julia swinging. It's hard to believe how quickly the time has passed since I took the first pictures of her swinging - almost a year!!! Did you see those pictures? If you want to see them now (I'll let you come right back to this page) click HERE !

Here's Julia playing with Jordan. She sees Jordan almost every morning when we go to the playground. They are hesitant friends at best.

Here's Jordan again and another little girl named Carissa who has started coming again every day, too. We have an informal play group but Julia interacts with Carissa best since they are both pretty outgoing.

That's all the 15 month pictures for now. I'm sure there will be more so check back soon!!! And here's two new pictures now. I am getting some film developed so on Friday (when I'm not babysitting) I'll add another page.

take me home, please
